Today’s guest post comes from my friend, Kevin Haggerty. He’s a Christian, husband, dad, web/graphics designer, writer, and MMA blogger. Kevin and his wife, Kim, are going through a year where they:
Both lost their jobs, and
Welcomed their son, Aidan, into the world. Through it all, hard as it’s been, God has been there.
I’m a pretty nice guy.
As a kid, I was probably somewhat of a pushover. I am the oldest of seven kids. I was obedient. I didn’t get in a lot of trouble. I held the line. I was essentially next in command if the boss went down.
I also have always been an introvert, though that is not something I’ve understood about myself until very recently in life.
Because of those factors, I generally kept to myself and avoided conflict as a child. In high school, I wasn’t a lot different. Though I started to stand up for myself a little, I was very much still going through a process of self-discovery.
The truth is that I probably took more crap than I needed to for the first 18 or so years of my life.
It was somewhere along that point in time that I started to become acclimated with anger. It was my out. My new savior.
It was my superpower.
