For the longest time I’ve wondered if I’m on the right track, am I doing what I need to, am I helping my wife out enough.
A lot of those answers were no. Especially the last one.
I felt more important than her. Felt like what I wanted to do was more important. Then I had a mental breakdown.
A lot of things changed after that.
I started TM(Transcendental Meditation), we moved from our house in Las Vegas a little over a year later. This year I stopped drinking.
But before all of that I was not a very good husband or father. I never cheated on my wife but it was the way I talked to her that changed a lot.
I’m not perfect, never will be, but I communicate more, I listen better, and I work on how I speak to her and our kids.
I’ve realized that my family is more important than I am. It’s a humbling experience to learn you’re not as cool as you thought you were.
This year I’m working on improving my writing more and how I communicate with others.
I have a lot of projects to finish this year but the most important is always myself.
