Sobriety and Authenticity: Unmasking My True Self

Revealing My Authentic Self: The Sobering Journey

One of the biggest adjustments I had to make when I chose to become sober was to my personality. I was forced to actually have one.

The Happy Drunk Persona

When I was a drinker, I was considered a happy drunk. I was always the life of the party, making people laugh and was told that the drunk me was way more outgoing, sociable, and fun to be around than sober me.

One of the biggest adjustments I had to make when I chose to become sober was to my personality. I was forced to actually have one.

Unmasking the True Personality

The belief is that drunk words are sober thoughts. This is true but only to an extent. Alcohol was merely amplifying my personality but that personality was always there. Alcohol was just lowering inhibitions and walls that I had placed up around my personality to protect myself from people’s reactions to me and what people might say or think.

Rebuilding My Authentic Self

Embracing My True Self

I thought I needed alcohol to be the life of the party. If I only knew what I know now. Now as the sober version of myself when I’m in social gatherings, shows, parties, BBQs, etc. I have to keep this in mind. I just have to remember to be myself and let the real personality shine through a bit more.

Breaking Down Walls and Facing Authenticity

I have to work a bit harder to keep the walls down and get out of my quiet comfort zone. Just be yourself regardless of what people think. People will judge you anyway and not everyone will like you everywhere you go but at least if you’re being authentic, the people who do like you will like you for the real you. Also, more people will pick up on you being real and will appreciate and respect you more for it than if they know you’re putting up a front.
