Maybe there is a personality clash or his or her tactics just aren&rsquo;t what you need at the time. You may wonder if this is your fault but know that sponsor changing does occur in recovery and it&rsquo;s alright. Most sponsors understand that not all personalities or mentor philosophies are a match.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><o:p></o:p></p> <p><a href="https://www.patmoorefoundation.com/blog/did-i-pick-wrong-sponsor-or-it-me" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://www.patmoorefoundation.com/blog/did-i-pick-wrong-sponsor-or-it-me#comments Tue, 18 Nov 2014 00:20:44 +0000 Guest 1157 at https://www.patmoorefoundation.com
