New To The Group- Worried!
So glad I found this group...it's my first time writing anything, but it seems like if anyone would understand what I'm going through it would be you ladies. So my boyfriend Shawn & I have been together about 6 years, and he recently completed basic training & is now doing OCS at Fort Benning. Luckily he is only about 3 hours from me, but unfortunately that hasn't lessened the strain on our relationship. Recently, I find myself wondering if being an Army wife is something I want. I love him with all my heart, & obviously after so long together we know we make an amazing team. I am scared of this new future he has chosen though. I am so proud of him, but I can't escape the fears- how much time apart will this mean, and can our relationship survive it? Can I be the kind of girl who will follow a man across the country, maybe around the world, for his training & service? Will I be ok with having to relocate & leave careers behind?
Is anyone else in the same boat, or feeling the same? Have some of you ladies been where I am? If so, any advice or insight would be so wonderful!
Thanks in advance! Brett Marie
