I love my sponsor dearly. She is not only my sponsor...AA mentor...but good friend as well. We have similar stories...similar life styles...same aged kids...etc (only she has been sober over 20 years and me..just 2 and 1/2) Anyway-love her-but she is driving me friggin crazy. She is a stay at home mom (her husband actually GIVES her $1800 a month just for spending...not to pay bills) and every time I talk to her..she is telling me how tired she is...how busy she is...how she never stops for a minute. Now I know being a stay at home mom is a lot of work-I've done it. But I am a single mother of three...full time job...full time everything. I'm sick of hearing about how exhausting her plush little life is. I feel like saying..."what the fuck are you so tired from!!! I do everything you do...only I also work 50 hours a week". I am being a brat and I need to stop. Acceptance of people, places and things. Accept everyone for exactly where they are in their life right now. That's what I'm supposed to do. Sorry-can't do it right now. If she tells me how stressful her life in ONE MORE TIME- I am going to SCREAM!!!!
