He went into the Army recently, toured Europe. It was his first time away from home and on his own.
When he got home and out of the military he said, "Now, I feel like I'm really on my own. There's a different feeling between being on your own in the military where your life and schedule is still pretty much spelled out for you and being a civilian again without any support or anyone telling you what you're to do next. Its a very freeing feeling I didn't realize until I had no one telling me what to do, where to sleep, what to eat, etc."
I dunno, it just made him seem so grown up and mature. Even as a soldier he didn't talk like that, but he makes a good point. At 1st he was free of his parents, but still had everyone controlling his life, but now for the 1st time was is truly free to make his own way and decisions.
Thats all. Thanks for reading.
