Army Girlfriend

Me and my boyfriend have been dating for about 2 years and just one day ago he left for the army. Hes at basic then leaves to go to school. He will be gone for about 7 months. Im having a very hard time with this and it would be nice to talk to people that are in the same situation as me. Its nice talking to my friends but most of them dont understand

When you think about all of it, don't think about all the days he's going to be gone. Just think about how many days you have left till you see him. My boyfriend is in the U.S. Army as well and I understand how hard it is. You sometimes feel like you're just falling apart...but it gets better. This is going to make you two stronger. Your loyalty, trust, and love will be tested...I'm sure you're strong enough. God made some of te strongest women and paired them with soldiers...one of them was you. Just think that in the hardest of times for him, he's going to be thinking of you. You're going to be the one that will help him trough. You are the thing that's going to give him strength. Just keep your head. I know is hard...you feel like you're dragging yourself out of bed every morning, struggling to get through the day, but just think abou how proud he's goin to be of you when he comes back :) I promise everything will work out. I don't know you, but if you're with a solider...you're strong.
