Hi my name is Colleen. I like running I like art I like adventures and I love my man how is currently at basic.

You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That’s how I’ve done it. There’s no other way.

Civilian vs Military Relationships



This Scenario:

Military Girl: God I miss him…
Civilian Girl: Well you chose that life…

Is just as wrong as this scenario:

Civilian Girl: I miss him! I haven’t seen him in 2 days..
Military Girl: Pfftt Two days? Try 2 months.. or 6 months, 9 months.. a year. And then get back to me.

Stop being assholes to each other.
And realize you both miss your significant others, and that’s okay.
