  • Ill be honest, the guilt of leaving behind loved ones who will blame themselves for not doing enough. On bad days that is the ONLY thing that keeps me here.

  • Looking at this dog tag I wear around my neck often helps keep me going, on one side it says this.

    United States Military's Warrior's Ethos.

    I will always place the mission first.

    " I will never accept defeat"

    " I will never quit"

    I will never leave a fallen comrade.

    Army Values

    Loyaty
    Duty
    Respect
    Selfless-Service
    Honor
    Integrity
    Personal Courage

    Looking around reminds me how little of any of the above is in the world, and looking at the dog tag reminds me not to give up, and to live to those standards. It's one of the many things that helps me keep going.

    • There's a lot more of those things in the world than you think there is, actually.

      Take a moment to consider how smoothly society flows, for the most part, even though 99.99 percent of it is completely unsupervised and unenforced.
      How MOST banal everyday interactions are actually based on lots and lots and LOTS of coordinated trust, which is so deeply etched into society that you don't even think about it.

      It's depressingly easy to *notice* when those things are violated -- and it's way too easy to forget how common they are, unless we see truly epic examples of them (like wartime heroism).
      But, nah dude. Honor, duty, and respect, at least, are absolutely everyfreakingwhere in this country.

    • @redeyemindtricks I'd like to believe that I really would but I look at the people in charge of all these countries are own included. But all I see is cowardess, corruption, greed, hungry for power. Look at the social justice groups in the streets chanting death, Muslims overrunning Europe, raping, breaking the law just to get to Germany all so they can lazily mooch of their welfare system like parasitic leeches. Even the damn churches are succumbing to this, and so much more and there is a lot of stuff that no offense you don't even have a clue about, I didn't even have a clue about it until only recently.

      Lol how this country runs has very little to do with Trust a lot of Americans actually don't trust the goverment, the media or very little else.

      I am aware that it exists in the world, but you see very little of it, and I am talking on a global scale here not just the united states.

    • @redeyemindtricks What also gets me down is personal stuff that has nothing to do with the world, like the fact that after battling against a bank that is majorly corrupt to the bone and incompetent, been raising prices illegally, falsifying information, mixing up our records on purpose with other people so that they have a excuse to do more illegal crap and all sorts of shit, but after 7 years of fighting against them they finally got my home, stole it basically, and now I have about a month to find someplace else or I am out on the streets.

      They've ripped off and destroyed so many peoples lives it's not even funny, where's the justice for them or for us? but nobody can do anything about, and nobody cares enough to try.

  • My boyfriend just somehow knows how to fix everything. When I'm down he has no hesitation and just jumps in ( kinda like a mum would to her baby crying at an inconvenient time is how I'd describe it) he does everything in his power to make sure I'm happy again.
