Image result for sean douglasLife is not always going to treat us kindly.  Sometimes life can be quite cruel, mean, and feel unjustified.  And sometimes it is our decisions that create so many of our problems.

As it turns out there are really three types of problems we will deal with in life, those that life happens to give us, those that others give to us, and those that we create for ourselves.  The fact is that regardless of where the problem comes from even if you created there is one thing that is absolutely true…you have control over how you will respond to it.

In this episode of A New Direction I interview United States Air Force (USAF) veteran Sean Douglas.  Sean’s life will appear to be just one crazy horrible ride.  From his dad leaving to join the military, to his step dad who was physically abusive, the boyfriend that was emotionally abusive, joining the Air Force to escape the day after 9/11, being an alcoholic, a series of failed relationships including his marriage, and finally he makes a decision to take his own life…when right before he pulls the trigger…a phone call comes…you will have to read the rest of the story.

Decisions: The Power To Overcome Self-Defeating Behaviors by [Douglas, Sean]Sean’s book is entitled Decisions:  The Power to Overcome Self-Defeating Behaviors is his story it will be one that I found I could not put down once I picked it up and started reading it.  The book is not only filled with the tragedy and triumph of Sean’s life, but it is also filled with thought provoking tips to help you and maybe help someone else in their painful journey.  The end of the message is there is always hope.
