Being sober means being happy in your own skin regardless of what the World throws at you and what others think about you. For example, there's no need to take foolish, unnecessary risks to prove yourself as being worthy to others. In other words, being truly sober means being happy with your self-image. There's no need to compare anything to anyone else. There is no jealousy, no fear of living up to another's expectations. You can also be happy for others accomplishments without feeling "less than."
Today I am going to unconditionally love myself. That means I am going to do healthy loving things for myself. I will not worry about whether or not I am living up to anyone's expectations.
