He's Only Gone For Three Months
My boyfriend is in the marines. And this is the second summer he's gone for training. he left last summer in may. when he graduated i flew out to see him. i just finished my senior year of highschool and he's just left this past sunday for another summer in training. i know there are families out there who have it so much harder, with a marine father gone for years. and my small three months problem seems nothing. i'm just having trouble with it. im really in love with him, and im ready to start a life with him. we've been off and on for the past 5 years. this next fall i'm going away to college 5 hours from the town we both live in. i'm struggling with how i feel. i love him, but i miss him so much. right now he is just in the reserve...but might decide to go active. i'm barley handling it with the three months...i don't know how id ever cope without him for longer. he calls everynight but i feel like he's distracted. i know i should be understanding...he has a lot on his mind...but i have alot on my mind too. and i just don't really know what to do, and how to cope in a healthy way. i miss him everyday and every minute. i need advice on how to be strong and to be there for him when he needs me.
