Told her how I felt


Told bRaving Bipolar how I felt about our upcoming move (for those of you not familiar, she’s my wife).  She’s been living in our hometown for the last 2 months while I’ve been slowly getting the house ready.  After she left, and I had to go through furloughs, I had a change of heart and decided that the move wasn’t the greatest idea for our family.  I was holding back, and when she came in a few weekends ago she wanted to talk jobs; so I let her know how I felt.  We had some good conversation and I stuck through a very uncomfortable conversation, which I don’t normally do, and she worked with me.

Some articles on mental toughness and pushing through adversity


Is Political Correctness Suppressing the Warrior Spirit of Our Nation?—on ITS Tactical

Mindset of the Professional Warrior: Humility—on SOFREP (Special Operation Forces Situation Report)

Human Performance: Advance by adversity—on SOFREP (Special Operation Forces Situation Report)

Human Performance: Advance by adversity Part II —on SOFREP (Special Operation Forces Situation Report)

 

If you can’t read the SOFREP articles, the ITS Tactical article can be done independently; SOFREP has gone to paid service recently (which may be inconvenient, but they do good writing and I read/need the information, so I am more than happy to compensate their writers).  They might be military-based/related, but still relevant; on the Warrior Spirit article, your values are your values whether or not you’re in the military.
