So yesterday I finally told my parents…
My mom started crying, but I kind of expected that.
Especially since the mortality rate for Spec Ops is 15x that of a normal recruit, and I know its only because she really cares about me.
My dad though…
He looked at me as though he had already lost me in every way possible, while still telling me he would support me in everything I decide to do.
It was the first time I ever saw him look scared and yet he never faltered in being my father.
Now that… broke my heart….
Beware of your never evers
Especially when it comes to people.
I often said I’d never join the military.
I said I never do medical things, because I can’t handle gore.
That I’d never break my promises.
I don’t like heights or respect authority…
Yet my job will literally be:
A military medic who jumps from planes.
How in the hell this happened I can’t really say.
But I can say this:
I have done everything I said I’d never ever do,
and guess what? So will you.
- Her: You're a fucking idiot.
- Him: No, you are.
- Him: For not stopping me...
Excuses Excuses Excuses
Think about the person you last hurt…
We hurt people then create a reason why it was okay to do so.
A reason to help us sleep at night.
It’s quite sad really.
