Learning to be okay, with just “okay.”

A recent share I could completely relate to:

Fellow Alcoholic:  “My sponsor asked me how I am doing, and I told him I’m okay, which is a weird place to be. I’m not joyous or angry or depressed.  There’s no jolt of anything.”

I can feel the anxious zone of stagnancy he spoke of, and its unnerving feeling of mundanity.  The good news is, we are not alone:


A friend sent this to me after her sponsor sent it to her, and I find comfort knowing that feeling antsy with ordinary is a natural human condition.
