Nagging thought

I keep thinking about how people who have known me will probably always hesitate to trust me and that this is justified due to my history, but how sad it all is. And everyone new who discovers that I’m a recovering ‘addict’ (today it sounds especially ominous) may also be more cautious around me. If only I could erase everyone’s memories of the regrettable things I’ve done…

    I understand where you are coming from however if you have shown others that you have changed, or are continuously changing for the better then those other people are the ones with the issue, not you. Everyone has a regrettable past but we can’t hold that against someone for the rest of their lives. I say don’t worry about what others are thinking because at the end of the day you only have one person to answer to, you. I’m also learing this as I go along and it kind of feels invigorating! Best of luck to you đŸ™‚

    • Thank you, I appreciate your feedback..I think it will be a time thing…do the right thing long enough and maybe regain a little trust. It’s so hard with addiction because having a history of lying makes it hard for people to believe you when you finally are doing what you should have been doing in the first place..it’s completely understandable ..I wouldn’t trust anyone in active addiction to be honest about their use either..But I agree at the end, all that should matter is that I am happy with me. Working on it…:)

    Your addiction does not define you. It may have in the past, but it will not always. You are making positive changes. Keep on keepin’ on.
