Just Another Soldier In The ArmyI was a soldier in the US Army. I went to Iraq at 18. Came back a man with issues. Was Honorably Discharged for a personality disorder. I am not proud of that at all. I am ashamed because I did not finish strong. I let down my platoon that I deployed with. I let down my family. I let down myself. Till this day I regret it. Through some level of spiritual growth and mental/emotional maturity I've began to learn how to let things go. Still, it's a process that only I can deal with, and it has been a painful one. There was nothing more disturbing, horrifying, and difficult, than looking inside myself and realizing what a mess I was. It's been a process to better myself and I gotta thank my family and God for bearing with me. I still regret what happened, but I'm learning to let go of this burden.
