Sobriety and dating
I know that this was the case for me when I first got sober.
I didn’t know what my hobbies were, I didn’t know what I liked, and my sense of self was severely lacking because I had spent most of my adult life trying to be numb.
This, however, does come with its drawbacks as sometimes over sharing, or being overly honesty, can cause problems in a relationship, so learning how and when to share is just as important as being honest.
It is important as well in relationships in sobriety that each person has their own recovery.
Whether it be AA Singles, NA Singles, Al-Anon Singles, GA, OA…
Overall I think the most important thing to remember about a relationship in sobriety is that you yourself have to be okay in order for it to be successful.
Once we get sober we realize that there is no one that can save us from ourselves, but only people who can add to our internal happiness.
