Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures
I have had a HUGE lifestyle change but in a way it wasn't a change. I just realized who I am.After high school I enlisted in the marines. I was a machine gunner and wanted to show people how tough I was. I was very conservative and narrow minded.Now I have realized I'm a free spirited free thinking person. I care for all life and like helping people smile. The thought of war makes me very sad. Peace and love are very important to me. My mind is totally open now and I love life.Being a free spirit my time in the military was hell. I just did not fit in well and was constantly messed with. People in my unit tried hurting me a few times and that made me very confused. I thought the marines was a brotherhood but how could that be if I was constantly brushed aside. I got very depressed after I was discharged early.I eventually started feeling better. I am now a very optimistic person. All I want to do is help people to be peaceful loving individuals that can live in harmony with nature. Our planet needs more love.
