Healthy Recovery, Healthy Relationships Most recovering addicts aren’t strangers to therapy and, as a result, have spent a lot of time working on themselves and their relationships.
They have learned critical relationship skills, including how to identify, process and communicate their emotions and to set personal boundaries while respecting the lines drawn by others.
Thoughts and prayers right now are for the 3 wounded officers, their family and friends. People give a lot of sh*t to cops and there are some good ones and some bad ones just like in any other profession - but the majority of them join the force for all the right reasons - to make a difference. I have occasional professional contact with the WPS. Really minor stuff that still has the ability to catch errant behaviour and change it before it escalates.
I commend them, respect them, and cry with their families when they are injured or killed protecting the people they serve. The WPS has never let me down with their handling of these situations. They support me in what I do, in whatever way that they can..that is a lot. The idea that some punk with a shotgun can take the life of any of the officers, anytime, scares the crap out of me.
Thank you for putting your lives on the line each and every day. Here's wishing for total and speedy recovery for the officers involved. It's a tough job to protect our city from stupid mindless acts of criminals but someone has to it.What an ugly christmas present for the City of Winnipeg Police Service staff, famlies of these police officers and the citizens of Winnipeg. Still, the members of the WPS, and other forces, do their jobs with surprising skill and a dedication that I couldn't muster.I couldn't do their job and I'm a very capable person.One cannot truly love until he learns to love himself.You may have heard this phrase, or some derivative of it, at least once before.While some people can easily relate to and embrace the fact that everyone has a past, others can find it hard to reconcile the two.
