Looking back, I clearly understand that seeing a 'chain of command' approach in my house was a positive thing for me. My father provided a strong point of view on life and was a leader. Boys, especially, need that.
You only have to view life in a positive way.
Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what they have been through.
Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.
View every problem as an opportunity...
