Day 352: sober truths

3D7D51C6-7041-4006-A67A-5BFAF15F9F39

I’m reading “Sober Truths: The Making of an Honest Woman” by Jill Kelly. I’m finding lots to relate to, such as emotionally unavailable parents, a desire for a creative outlet, and of course, using alcohol to numb. There is a long thread of loneliness woven through her life’s story, and I relate to that too although my own life now is not nearly as lonely as it was when I was single. Those memories from my twenties, and the longing I felt to have a loving partner, to be one half of a whole, are a nice reminder of all I have to feel grateful for now.

Happy sober Thursday,

jen
