Capt McNab is back to discuss common relationship pitfalls, how they impact operators, and strategies to mitigate these issues. This will be the first of a few discussions about marriage and family which sometimes create the most impactful stressors for operators. Some people are really lucky and mature and handle relationship issues without stress or negative emotions. But most of us are human beings and are emotional and not given the skills we need when we are young to optimize our relationships with loved ones and friends. Developing self awareness and strategies to communicate better and compromise, and put work into your relationships is the beginning.
