Glad to hear that you recovered from your depression. I was never in the military so I can't really imagine what it is truly like to come back from that.
I see a lot of young adults that have a difficult time finding their purpose in life. I can only imagine how much harder it is to find purpose after coming back from war.
I am fortunate enough to feel a great sense of purpose. I believe that that is the key to living a good life. I encourage everyone I meet to strive to find their purpose.
Perhaps the saddest thing about war is that it forces a person to go against their ideals, morals, and values. It is hard for a person to go on in life knowing that they went against their principles when it really came down to life and death. But people do what they have to do to stay alive. We can't really help it. All we can really do is help others to not make the same mistakes. I don't really know.
I won't pretend that I understand, but I think we should all try our best to do so.
