I’m grateful this week for my sim partner and our sim instructor. I had a block when it came to learning certain things in the sim. I believe this struggle was due to learning a new airplane (it’s been fifteen years) and also getting older. After further reflection, I think it has more to do with trying to get through training while also putting a lot of energy maintaining boundaries with my wife. I know this is important for my well-being and contact with her would most likely get me out of my studying mode. I have only studied harder to distract.
I’m so grateful that my sim partner has been supportive of me and helped me through the tough points. I’m also grateful that our sim instructor has taken a lot of his extra time to ensure we are understanding the material and will complete the training within the timeline given to us. The extra assistance these two have given me means more than words can say.
