I was a mess. Military servicemember, husband and father at 19, unhappy in many ways of life. My marriage took a huge toll on me, very controlling and emotionally abusive, yet i stuck it out as long as I could for my kids. But after nearly 20 years I was all alone - no wife, kids, or home. Finances in the toilet, I was diagnosed with severe depression, in therapy and on medications that made it difficult to do the best I could as a military leader. I was having panic breakdowns because I just couldn’t deal with life and I felt unworthy of being alive. It all turned around when I decided to focus on getting myself better by going back to church to rebuild my foundation. It worked wonders. I got my dream military job, got my finances in order and met the love of my life, my second wife. Since retiring from the military, I landed a federal government job, built a brand new home and am happier than I’ve ever been. It all started with going back to the basics and reinvent myself so I could live a happier and best life possible. Those demons are long past me and if I can do it, anyone can. You just need to believe in yourself
