I’ve read in our literature that not everyone recovers at the same rate and some of us are sicker than others. I had a conversation last night on Facebook with someone who proved that to me.
I sent a couple of friend requests to some people in a recovery group that I am a member of. So this person writes me back asking me who I was and goes into why you sending me a request when your page says you are in a relationship and how I need to be building my foundation and not trolling on Facebook for women. How she’s a predecessor Yadda yadda so forth and so on. Literally passing judgment on me.
Well needless to say I went ham on that ass. I forgot all about the positive and went back at this disturbed person like a zombie on the walking dead goes after people. I later felt a bad but I was able to reach out to some of my extended network and they helped me to let it go. I know that I am many things but trolling, predatory, cheater. I AM NOT.
It never seems to amaze me how many sick people there are, but it always seems to amaze me how I find myself somehow or another crossing paths with these people. Its like I have a crazy person magnet. SMH.
Anyway I know that I still have a lot of work to do. I am still capable of going zero to one hundred REAL QUICK. I have to be mindful that I am responsible for my recovery and not allow others to take me out of my positive character. Some of us are sicker than others and I have no control over how someone else acts, I only have control over how I respond.
I’m not that far removed.
