Hey, Britty :) I see you are into this stuff too. Have you been to crimelibrary.com? They have a lot of history and stories about serial killers, from the beginning of their childhood until the day they got caught or executed.
People who kill really are messed up. I even have problems killing bugs, haha :p

My interest in psychology and mental disease is more than satisfied with my life experience thanks, I've dated people with mental issues, and the father of my future step daughter is psychotic mostly due to his mother's treatment of him.

Yes... we live in this cruel, crazy and sick world. Thank you for protecting your GF and her daughter. At least there is someone reaching out his helping hands. :)

Exactly Irene. Some people let out their anger/frustration on other people and animals, and that is also where a lot of domestic abuse and animal abuse comes from. People don't know how to let their anger out in a non destructive way, and so they hurt other things.

Especially in American society, many men are encouraged to not show their feelings, whether they are taught that by their parents or our idiotic media influences them into thinking so. It's not "macho" and such. It's quite sad that so many men are ashamed if someone sees them cry, or if they do get angry it's basically taught to them that it's OK to fight it out, rather than talk.

There is a surprisingly growth of young women that have started to fight here, rather than just do the normal woman thing of talking behind their backs or talking it out. Many more women are engaging in physical confrontations, so there's a trend starting in this country.

Oh boy. Sometimes I fear for the future of humanity.

Yes Britty, I believe what you say about the trend is true, not only in western community, but everywhere. Men are not supposed to cry... not macho ... all sorts of silly belief. That really leads to more violence even sicko acts, like abuse and killings.
Especially as military wife, I believe your role beside your husband is very important. People need to be reeducated about the more healthy way to vent their feelings which is much less destructive. It's really surprising when you said even women are engaging in physical confrontations, as I believe, women should be more easier to talk /vent out their negative feelings, if they're allowed to (sometimes in many cases, they're not allowed, so they have to suppress their feelings too).
I also worry as you said you fear for our future. Reeducation is important, to bring up better awareness.

I didn't get out of high school too long ago, and we saw the trend in women fighting within my own school, too. I witnessed quite a few female fights when I was there, hair pulling and all.

I've always made sure to tell my husband that it's OK for him to open up to me. I'm not going to make fun of him if he cries or say's he's afraid or anything. Anything he needs to talk about, he can tell me, I don't care what it is. I would rather he get his feelings out in the open, rather than keep them hidden up. This will be especially important when he gets back home. It's important he knows that he doesn't have to deal with his problems alone.

What a wise wife. :)
Yes, being afraid is normal for anyone, male or female, children or adults. It's nothing wrong to admit your fear. That way, we will be able to really overcome fear !

I just know how hard it can be for soldiers after they come home from the Middle East, and I don't want him to go through some of the problems others do. I know how hard it is to feel like you have no one to talk to about your feelings.

Sorry dear, Afghanistan is far away from the Middle East. This country is located in Asia. 8)

britty3189 05-23-2009 11:54 AM

Well, forgive me then for grouping Afghanistan into the Middle East. However, it is located right next to Iran, so the mistake is easy to make, especially since the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan are commonly referred to as in the Middle East by people here, considering Afghanistans proximity to those countries. Pakistan is commonly grouped into the Middle East also. So thanks to our current affairs within Asia, many people here group it into one lump term, Middle East.

Regardless, it's difficult for any soldier to come back from being deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan for a significant amount of time.
