Your Strength

I have gotten comments on my stories from such strong women and I have always thought myself to be strong, until this of course!  You girls just know that it's all going to be okay and i am trying to be that way also but im finding it incredibly hard..  I have been one of those people that has always known things and if i didn't know something i found it and learned it but when i met my soldier everything changed and with him i never knew what was coming even though most of the time it is always good things.  i am just so afraid that it wont be so good this time...and it's only been a week and a day!

oh gosh girls! you have no idea how much you have helped me calm down because i am the worlds worst about stressing and worrying... i feel relieved, i think, to hear these things!!

Your strong girly! Your getting past the worst part. :D After this, your home free! We have all been there and fought that same struggle. Feel free to message me anytime you need to talk or anything!

Stay strong sweetie! There were times where I could honestly see myself going insane from stress. Like while my boy was at basic, missing his calls killed me, and his letters always seemed to take forever. But you can push through it. If you know when he's coming home, don't think of it like "Oh he's still gone for x days" find the middle. Count up to the middle, and count down to when you two are together again. That's what I did while he was at basic, and AIT, and I'd do it now for when he comes home before his deployment (he's stationed in Germany, going to be deployed to Afghanistan) but he won't tell me when he's coming home. Live for his letters and calls. He may not be able to pour his heart out over the phone, but it will be in letters. And when all is said and done, seeing him and cuddling with him again will all be worth the wait. "Distance makes the heart grow fonder." I'm always here if you need someone to talk to. (:

Yeah. But either way, if the letters come in the next week or in the next 2ish weeks we'll be fine! we've got each other and plenty of other strong, helpful women on here!

Oh WOW.. that is soo long. but that means we would have only a week and 5 or 6 days left to hear from them lol

Your welcome.<br />
I was talking to this one girl and she said it took her almost 3 weeks to get her first letter and her guy is at Jackson as well. I hope it doesn't take that long. I can't go that long without word from him.<br />
But when my cousin went to BCT he wrote us a week after being there so it just depends on the DI's and if they earn the privilege.<br />
<br />
I'm sure he sent it! He probably couldn't write & saw it & wanted to send you something saying that you're on his mind! (:

thank you and yes me too! it had a few small lines but thats it. it took six days to get here based on the date that it said it was sent so idk... =( that makes me sad he might not have even sent it bc of the fact that it's not a real letter.

lol. I've been doing it since the day he left for MEPS haha. I have close to 6 pages.<br />
<br />
Yes I will certainly let you know!! I wish that both of our letters would come really soon.<br />
<br />
I never received a postcard though. Did he get to write on it or was it blank?

lol i have done that since saturday! i have almost 3 pages just waiting for him... will you let me know when you get your letter and so maybe i can be expecting mine as well?? i would appreciate it.

We're all strong. That includes you!! If you weren't strong you wouldn't be able to date a soldier. It's one of the hardest tasks in our lives but it's worth it. Instead of counting days that he's been gone, count down the days until he graduates BCT. I know that makes me feel better. Every morning I cross the day off my calendar and say only __# of days until I can see him. It's more positive anyways. & something else that might help is write him something everyday. It doesn't have to be long, but I write down stuff that has happened to keep my soldier updated everyday just in case I forget by the time his letter arrives. This way it makes me feel comfort and I'm keeping him updated. & By the time your soldier sends you his first letter, you'll have a little book to send him about what's been going on with you.

Hey, your strong too your an army girlfriend! lol My advice is to just take it one day at a time. If you keep thinking that hes going to be gone for (insert # of weeks here lol) your goina drive yourself crazy. Your doing awesome you've already gotten through the first week so Congradulations!! You've made it this far and your doing great. This only brings you closer to your first letter! Message me if you ever wanta talk!<br />
