At work today we participated in a challenge to compare our past selves to who we are now. As hard as it sounded, it was quite honestly one of the easiest things I’ve done in a while. So today, I share with you a more detailed list of who I was then versus now. Years ago, I was anxious, depressed, drunk, suicidal, struggling, broke, miserable, discouraged, hurt, hateful, angry, selfish. Today, I am happy, struggling, educated, challenged, healthy, better, loving, kind, grateful, blessed, honest, beautiful, and sober. Today, I’m alive and well. I struggle but as my dear friend @donthefenceman says: sober doesn’t mean easy.
