    A Letter To My Now-ex That He Will Never Read...

    Being Strong

    I have been in the Army for six years and I've done two 12month combat tours to Afganistan. I will be honest, they have taken their toll on me as my mind is not what it use to be. I find myself now distant and detached from regular people. The things they say and the things I...

    Is This "normal"? He Literally Said I Did Nothing Wrong.

    So my boyfriend and I broke up. He said he doesn't want a relationship while he is in the military. That's at least 7 years. He has been in South Korea since March. I could completely understand him worrying about me hurting him or wanting to go out and do whatever with whoever...
