Thank you for listening Glenn. I really don't have many friends that actually have a wife and kids nor care to how to treat them and give them emotional side of you that they most deserve. I have a real problem with putting my emotions out in the open for my family to see. I tell them I love them all the time but those are really just words. I would like to learn how to express my true feelings and show them physically that I deeply care and respect them unconditionally. I think my problems come from the Army and becoming so close to quite a few people only to see them killed in combat. I have become so numb emotionally it is hard for me let people see how i truely feel at risk of causing heartache. I know my family would never hurt me emotionally it is just something I really need work on. I appriciate your concern and any advise. Thank You.
