Are you sober right now?

I was so used to that feeling of being let down. I used to wait for it. Like when is the ball going to drop. Inevitably it always would— awesome, another person in my life who sucks. Something about sobriety and recovery has changed that. I am not sure if I was picking the wrong people and expecting the wrong things or wallowing in self-pity. I don't know what it is that has changed because it is not actually that people are super showing up for me. However, I don't get that feeling anymore and people don't do that to me anymore but it might be an issue of perception...
