I have had my own struggles with alcohol, depression & anger for a while. I’ve always been mindful to never share my “demons” with others though. I chose not to subject others to my bullshit. I’ve stayed away from relationships. I’ve pretty much isolated myself from love or being loved. Never married or been in a serious relationship.
I’ve had plenty of friends. Let me rephrase that. I’ve had plenty of drinking buddies over the years. I’ve slowly gotten away from booze over the past few years. And I haven’t had a sip of alcohol in over six months now. Unsurprisingly, all those friends…errr , I mean drinking buddies pretty much stopped calling. And that’s OK. I understand it. We’re in different places in our lives now. Our fellowship ran its course.
