Seriously, Stop It!
Okay, I'm on several pages on Facebook for military spouses where we can all go and have a laugh together, and to support and encourage each other while our hubby's are deployed, etc. and also on several military spouse groups on here, & I NEED to get this out. Say what you will, bash me if you want, personally I don't care and it won't bother me.. this mostly applies to the LADIES out there because generally men don't do this because they have a little bit of common sense.. So, here goes. As a military girlfriend, fiancee, wife, whatever.. YOU DO NOT HAVE A RANK!!!!!! Please please pleaseeeeeeeee STOP saying "Oh, honey you got promoted, I'm so proud of you.. what rank are 'WE'?" "WE" aren't any rank.. HE has a rank. YOU DO NOT! YOU did not earn that rank. YOU did not get promoted. YOU did not work for that rank! You didn't go to war, you didn't fight for your country, you didn't stand on the front line, you didn't get shot at, you didn't do ANYTHING to deserve that rank! DO NOT WEAR IT! "Y'ALL" aren't an E-6. HE IS! Also, please STOP whining and complaining. YOU CHOSE THIS LIFE! You knew what you were getting yourself into. Suck that **** up and deal with it. STOP FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF, GET OUT OF BED, and continue on with your life. He WANTS you to do that. I understand the first few weeks of deployment are rough especially if its your first time, BUT, him knowing you're so depressed that you won't even get out of bed will NOT make things any easier for him! God forbid anything happens to him while he's over-seas but if it does are you going to stay in bed for the rest of your life?! HELL NO! He will take pride in knowing that you can get your *** up and carry on with your life and take care of yourself while he's gone. THAT will make him love you even more, NOT you complaining and crying all the time refusing to get out of the bed. GET REAL HONEY! Get up and do what you gotta do. Get a job. Hang out with friends. Have some fun. If you can't do that, then you aren't cut out for this life. Seriously. Oh and by the way being a military spouse is NOT the hardest job in the military because YOU are not in the military. GET OVER YOURSELF, GET OVER IT, AND CARRY ON. Adapt and overcome, remember?! HOOAH!
