Comments17/07/2016 #2 Brian McKenzie#1 Day 1 in Boot is always shell shock.... not nearly as fun as the day they put a 16 yo in charge of the company barracks. Good times - talk about attitude adjustments - not a lot of people like taking orders from a 16 year old. Nearly all of my family did time in the military - I was well aware of the games they played - it was really just 'Camp Happy' with as Col Jessup put it - faggety white uniforms. * Marine Corps PLDC was another game entirely - they kicked my ass.17/07/2016 #1 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDI would entitle this: Hippy Child Abuse and a Good Grandpa Escape. Brutally honest, but I would expect nothing less from you. I'm sorry for the bad, and I see what you can do. There's so much more to you. Your brain is beautiful, something that re-wired itself to survive. I'll never call you a victim, for that does not reside. You are a Warrior, once upon a time...when children were supposed to be children, your Grandpa taught you about time. He gave you food, life, history, and sustenance. And for this, you thrive. Keep writing, my friend, as it is truly real life and we cannot be spared to look through the eyes of an adult whose body was only that of a child. Break forth, as you have always done, to conquer another quest that is before you in the military. How was your first day?

Life is all about challenges, it's how you handle them that matters most. I think it's important to welcome change and not be afraid of stepping outside your comfort zone because that is always where true growth begins. You've got to feel the fear and do it anyway, lol ;)12/07/2016 #45 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAThanks Amour, for sharing such a personal story. I admire you for your determination to move forward in a way you knew, in your heart, was best for your son. It's a truly inspirational story we can all learn from.. And as Aaron Skogen states in his comment "Experience, is indeed, life's best school."12/07/2016 #44 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDFantastic mothering! YOU knew what to do because you realized this was your one son, and your one life with him growing up for a fraction of his impressionable life. And you gave him all that you could give, no regrets. Hat's off to you, Mother! Hat's off to you!11/07/2016 #41 Pascal DerrienThat's one hell of a story but I should not be surprised you did it for your son providing your first name :-)
One thing only I can relate too is people telling you not to do it those types are everywhere a long time ago before the mobile phone era I left Paris to cross the Canada over a two months with limited cash at age 19 the number of people who tried to persuade me to do otherwise was impressive, I would get kill I would run out of money I did not know the country they heard so and so etc... I left and I had a ball I slept on beaches, sordid hostels etc,, but a few years later I crossed Eastern Europe when the wall fell and cross the US too morale is I don't really care what people say and YOU DID RIGHT
PS: I travelled thru your country and Mozambique too but that will be for another time

Comments17/04/2017 #192 Joanne GardockiLovely and thought provoking, particularly at this time of year when hope springs eternal. I found myself wondering where is "agape" the Greek word and concept of the highest form of love in the diagram. Must all love be romantic? Giving from the heart and fullness of self for the pure delight in the object of love rings true when I hold a baby. Thank you, @Ali Anani, for sharing the warmth of pondering love.25/02/2017 #184 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#182 @Robert Cormack- very interesting comment. I read yesterday a buzz on beBee stating that Love = Joy + Fear. I think it was @Louise Smith who wrote it. Love is the combination of joy and fear. If we love somebody we also fear his/her loss. Th is idea intrigues me as much as your comment does. Again, I see a real expansion of this idea in your comment Love hurts. Yes, it does and again I would say Love = Joy + Hurt
A lot to think about22/02/2017 #182 Robert CormackLooks like we're talking about triangular love, @Ali Anani. I think we're all faced with all three points when we "fall in love," each one giving us something but not everything. It's often not what we leave out or misinterpret, but what we expect. Think of it as the "round peg in a square hole." Since love isn't a solid object, we don't see ourselves forcing round into square or square into a triangle. We only realize it doesn't fit when we feel dissatisfied or hurt. Again, since love isn't a solid form with tangible proof we've chosen the wrong pieces, we make the same mistakes again. That's why we say "Love hurts." It really doesn't. What hurts is failure.06/01/2017 #179 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#178 I wish you had written this comment before @Lyon Brave and I am sure this comment would have drawn many more comments. For example, your writing "The love we have so easily for our friends and family is mature love, it’s natural and effortless". Love is effortless- what a deep meaning this carries! It is stunning beauty.
ANother example is "Romantic love might be a dysfunctional state of immature love. It might be a seed of love when it’s is still adolescent". I agree as I have witnessed many immature marriages because of dysfunctional love fell apart and ended in smoke.
I have got to know you recently Lyon, but believe me the only thing that comforts me is late is better than never.05/01/2017 #178 Lyon BraveMature love is the foundation of family and a peaceful society. The love we have so easily for our friends and family is mature love, it’s natural and effortless. We love our friends for being themselves and we don’t expect or demand too much from them. We just have to look at behavioral patterns to understand romantic love is illusive and unstable and can at times be immature love. Romantic love might be a dysfunctional state of immature love. It might be a seed of love when it’s is still adolescent. The seed has potential to grow into a tree and become rooted for the long-term, but it’s more likely they seed will be lost in the wind. Immature love and mature love should not be regarded in the same light or with the same seriousness, but people will go all Romeo and Juliet.04/01/2017 #176 Devesh 🐝 BhattLove can be anything but i assume it as the depth of understanding, the opposite of love is returning from a shallow experience, let me clarify ..shallow means ..not looking at a person but ones own needs.
The recursive loop is this, understanding becomes a need, women like me because they want to be understood, but hate me because they fear being understood... Its more to do with social conditioning than there individuality..
I still have to learn when to initiate and when to respond, the timing usually sucks.
A loss of company isn't the loss of love, its a feeling and not a person. I have loved, I still love and i enjoy it when a person does good. Women doubt love when I say this,I believe I need another lesson in love.
