is not that you fear people might be
thinking negative, critical things about you.
is that you fear they might be right.
Let it go.
Sobriety is a gift
we work to keep and we are privileged to pass along.
It ultimately does not matter what self-criticisms and self-loathing and self, self, self, self we are tangled in.
All that self obsession will eventually
evaporate in the sunlight of the spirit
Don't take yourself so seriously.
It really does.
