- The time apart won’t last forever. - You’re so much stronger than you could ever imagine. - You get to have your first kiss again and it’ll be priceless! - The time apart can make or break your relationship. So be sure to use it to strengthen the bond between you.
Today’s mental health reminder: a relapse, a sudden series of attacks, a string of awful days, (or whatever your step back may be) does not decrease your value. Take your time, do some self care, reflect on the progress that you have made. You are strong; one step back is nothing when you look at the journey you have already made.
it definitely gets easier. my husband was deployed twice in a year, once for 6 months and a month after getting home he left for a 3 month surge deployment without contact. stay busy, get into a routine & itll start to fly by.
I can’t imagine what that must have been like. This is the first deployment that we’ve gone through together so I’m very new to all of this.
Part of the reason why this is so hard for me already is because I’m worried about him. He was really nervous and scared before he left and I just want him to be okay. I don’t think he’ll have a chance to contact anyone during this deployment so the only thing that I can really do for him is pray that he’ll stay safe and healthy and send some good vibes his way.
I’ve had other people tell me that if I stay busy then it’ll go by fast. I’m trying to make more plans with people and focus on work. I also have a countdown going so that’s kind of helping.
