Remind yourself that they have no idea what your finances are or what you life is like now that you have become sober. However, these people will make hurtful comments, but you must remember who the hell you are now not who you were.
Unfortunately, these cruel people may cause you to feel, as if you cannot do anything right. Let their words bounce right off your newly developed thick skin. Never let anyone in your life make you feel this way, because you deserve better as a recovering addict.
The way you choose to live your life is no one else’s business. Furthermore, they have absolutely no right jumping into your financial business or jumping to conclusions about what your money is spent on.
Sometimes you have to separate yourself from people, who will destroy the progress you have made in your journey to recovery.
You can still love them but you don’t have to listen to or speak to them. Be sure to tell them in a loud a clear voice to “Kick Rocks” and you remember that you are a beast, who is rocking sobriety!
