Each and every day, there is something somewhere you don't want to happen but we have to accept them. There are things we learn even if unwilling to learn them even if you don't want to accept them. And people we don't want to let go but we must anyways.
This is like being in a military relationship especially with those spouses that husbands are off the coast dealing with a mess. There are things we wish wouldn't happen. We have had to accept them and learn about what is going on over there. We don't want to let go, but we must. However, in the end please remember it isn't permanent. It's only a "see you later" or "see you soon". Spouses of these ships dealing with this; remember that you are not alone. You are a lot stronger than you seem. There are a lot of people that are willing to be there for you, but you have to be willing to accept their hand.
I'd like to remind people that in order to love someone else, you must first love yourself. That doesn't mean that you can't lift someone up when they are down. Or even open and hold a door for someone behind you. A lot of people, today, are in their own little world. There is a lot of greed and selfishness. Where is love? Where is the time where we could rely on our neighbors to care? How many of you know your neighbors name? Can you trust them?
I enjoy watching people when I am in public. It gives me something to analyze. Almost every person I have seen never looks at their environment. There is quit a few people that never move out the way for a older couple, or doesn't even hold the door. Where is the respect? I mean we are only a little strong alone and overwhelm yourself faster. But if we came together like we use to, not separate by civilian or military than it would be a lot easier. Everyone knows who to go to when they want advice a military couple may go to a civilian couple for some advice, it just depends on what you are looking for; EVERYONE DOES IT. So don't be basis, it's ugly. Just because you ask for help or lean on each other doesn't mean you aren't independent. It just shows you are stronger and have the courage to reach out.
