When I learned my mother had run off and I was stuck with my father only.
That would be when I found out the horrific thing my father and his friends did to my mother. Because of his actions, her actions showed her hatred towards my little brother and I for what he did to her and as a little child I saw the violence with my own eyes so I knew all along but to hear the whole truth when I was halfway through my life was something else. It just killed a part of me. I lost my faith in humanity until a new friend that I worked with recently gave me hope again.
War. Stayed drunk for ten years. A wasted decade.
Joining the Navy was my best life experience. There were so many obstacles for me to enlist in the Navy. Starting with my education and overcoming the final obstacle of having blemishes on my skin. At the end of that day I realized that I had fulfilled a goal I had since I was 10. The lesson was that if I wanted anything in life I would have to climb mountains to achieve it. I've lived an extraordinary life and can't see anything as a worst life experience. However I believe that one choice I made in my life had lead to many problems I could have lived without. When the Navy offered to bring me back to the United States after seven years overseas, I should have stayed over there.
Worse was an assault I had when younger which hit my confidence for some years. Best is probably the realisation that I have recovered from it
Best was going away to college. It opened my brain and my outlook on life. I knew there was something else out there. Never was the same.
