You do you…..

So, ” you do you” is a sentence/saying I have heard said a lot. But it was only the other day that I really understood it.

It’s actually very simple but also really hard to do! We, or at least I am, always comparing myself or my journey to others. So here’s a little reminder…..

Don’t worry how someone else got sober.

You. Do. You.

Don’t worry what others have achieved in the first 1,5,10 years of sobriety.

You. Do. You.

Don’t worry if your before & after picture looks exactly the same.

You. Do. You.

Don’t worry if actually you’re still really fucking struggling with being sober and have to ask for help daily.

You. Do. You.

Don’t worry if you’ve not told anyone about you being sober.

You. Do. You.

Basically…don’t let other people’s lives make you feel yours is worth less. Any time you spend wishing you were them is time wasted on your own life (nicked and bastardised)  We are sober! And you know what, for me, nothing compares with that feeling. All together now…..You. Do. You.
