For people serving in the military and for transitioning veterans, our critical mind can be unsettling, unruly, irreverent and ridiculous all at the same time. With the tools and resources found in this book, you’ll be able to apply this personal development approach to learning how to better self-regulate your triggers in your own life and will find it useful enough to pass along to other veterans in need. It’s also for families and friends of veterans who want to better understand how to be of support.
If you answer yes to any of the following five statements, then saddle up, this book is for you:
If one or more people this week asked, “You okay?", “What’s wrong?” And you responded with, of course, “I’m fine.” (“I’m fine” is usually a code word for "I'm not".)
If you’ve been told by someone “you need some help” or “you need to see someone."
If you’re about to choke the next dumbass who asks you the two stupidest questions you can ever ask a Vet, and you know what they are.
If you've been holding onto your shit for too long, acting calm, looking impeccable, but underneath it’s like a grenade of magma you can’t hold onto much longer....
If you’ve been in a dark place and can’t get past what you’ve been through, especially if you're wondering if you want to be here much longer....
If you said yes to any of these, especially that last one, you came across this book and audio series for a reason: There’s something here to learn. This is not about telling you what to think. It is about showing you how to think. What’s at stake is you, the quality of your life, who you’re becoming, your relationships, and reaching your potential.
