Zen12 Review

by Emily Jacob (2019-06-12)

After a couple of months of this I Zen12 finally came to the realization that I needed to get a grip and move on, after all my family had. I started by talking to my wife about how I felt and hearing from her on what she was going through. I realized that compared to what she had gone through for the last 18 months I didn't really have it so bad. I also talked to my kids about what was going on and asked them what they thought I should do. Another realization I came to is that kids are pretty smart! They can have a no nonsense approach that can cut through all the Bull. Ounce we got everything out in the open things immediately began improving; there were a lot less fights and everyone seemed to be getting along a lot better. I say fewer fights because when you have teenagers there are always going to be disagreements. We have been taking life one day at a time which I guess is the only way that you really can. Things are going great, my wife and kids feel that they can come to me for help or advice without me going off. It still takes work, and sometimes I slip back into that old mind frame but I guess everyone has that from time to time. Right now things are going good, I'm still the man and I have my wife's permission to say so. Life goes on and my kids are getting to the age where they have their own lives; friends, school and so on. But they still have time to tell the old man that they love me or that they are proud of me. And that's worth more to me then any medal I got serving in Iraq.
