Cupid’s Advice:

The protagonist’s drive to live free with his family is inspiring. His risk taking and perseverance show a man dedicated to his wife and little girl. With that in mind, here are ways to prioritize your family:

1. Have a set work schedule: It’s difficult to prioritize your family when you never see them. By having a set work schedule your family will know that you will reliably be present at certain times of the day. This isn’t possible for everyone, but if you can, obtain a consistent schedule with hours aligned with your family’s time table.

3. Be their safety net: While Kinnaman’s character’s adrenaline junkie risk taking might be sexy on screen it has many negatives in real life.
