Finally, after many torturously long nights and uncomfortable days, I felt my new life open up like a book. I opened up too. I cried, and felt vulnerable and strong at the same time. The people that had hurt me, and the shame and humilitation I placed upon myself, left me. The next day I started to feel like the old resentment was coming back, and once again I was driving at night and another warm breeze blew through the car and cleansed me of that sadness, for the final time.
From The Author
Welcome to my first 6 months of sobriety! What an exciting and whirlwind time in my life it was, and I look back upon it with fondness. Although I am very glad to be past those incredibly challenging and painful first few months. The only thing I would have done differently was started working the Steps right away instead of waiting!
