I’m no hero
I wrote a blog the other day about how the ‘hero’ narrative was bothering me and here’s a reply I had from an ex-service man.
“I served in the RAF for 25 years and that included fighting in a war.
Please don’t call me a hero. I understand that you want to say thank you and you know, I really do appreciate the flags, food and celebration. But I just want to revel in being with you again. Because I was just doing my job – and now I am home again.
Thank you Andy and all the people who are working, staying home, doing what they have to do to keep the country safe and functioning, albeit differently, at the moment.
Remember, fear, sadness and anger are normal at this time and if you need help with your emotions you can sign up to the free course I made with Psychologies Magazine by scrolling down or looking to the side of this blog. Also, hop over this page for links to live meditations or if you miss them, the recordings are on the video/podcast page for free .
Please pass this information on to anyone you think would benefit from it.
