I’m about to pass out cause I just got in from work, but I will let you in on a little secret. It will seem a bit messed up, but when I was overseas and active duty in the navy I always tried to compare my misfortunes to others just so I knew that I didn’t have it as bad. The only real bad thing was that I didn’t have a place like this and a group I could find that I got along with easily where I can help and have a bit of help when things got bad and things did get bad. The thing is don’t beat yourself up about it. You are going through your problems and he is going through his. He found a silver lining.
As long as it’s legal.
Whatever it is that you are dealing with isn’t any less important because you are going through the stress and the hassle. Even if you are the only one that has to deal with it in the end you have people you can lean on and ask for help, but you are the only one that what is happening in your life that can gauge what is important and what isn’t. Let him inspire you to press on and move forward. And if it gets real bad all you have to do is ask for support.
PS- I don’t bash others unless they deserve it. The things I post are to give good feelings are make people know they can do more. Good luck in your endeavours.
PPS- I had typed all that last night.
