So, I'm back, and many of you wanted me to post the unfolding drama that is my life at the moment.
Last week I came out and told my father that I was in the Navy, and was going to be trying out for Aviation Search Air Rescue. It's an extensive rate, and one that has a 40% failure rate among those who qualify. So needless to say, I do nothing but Run and Swim.
Anyways, the reaction was what I expected. He went off the handle and "forbid" me to do it. Mind you, I haven't lived in that house for a few years at least. And when he realized my decision wasn't going to be reversed, he told me to "Have a nice Life." I saw him yesterday (a full week since the news) and he seems to be sticking by his decision not to talk to me. He only say, literally, two words to me.
My mother took the news a bit better, although she also stated that I would "be giving up my entire family" ect, ect. And I told her that I'm not giving up my family, that I'd always be here, and be willing to be her son, and when the family pulls it's head out of it's ass that I'd still be here.
Anyways, that is the drama that has ensued. My grandmother refuses to go to my wedding because I'm not marrying a "christian" woman. And now my parents are probably not going to be there either. oh well.
I guess that means that I should just focus soully on the wedding and my PT. I already more than qualify for the program, but my SEAL mentor keeps saying that unless I'm down to SEAL times, then I'll never make it. So, I'm off to go run.
Post a comment, question or whatever you like, and I will get back with you.
Thanks for listening to my rant, any advice on how to handle the situation would be greatly appreciated.
