I Feel Like A Horrible Gf

Well my bf is in the army and I don't think I've been very supportive about it, not that I don't feel like he should serve his country but I just miss him and I guess I feel resentful towards him because he's not here with me an our newborn son. Please someone give me some advice...let me know I'm not the only one that has felt like this and how can I overcome this and be all I can be for my man!

You aren't a bad Gf. When my bf first left for boot camp I was pretty upset then when I first got his first couple of letters complaining about it I was just mad. I was trying so hard to be strong and positive for him and he couldn't even try to do that for me. It did get so much better though to the point I'm back to myself and loving him with all my heart. There will be days where you resent him and times where you feel very unappreciated but those days are forgotten and replaced with better memories. I hope this helped. Good luck with the little one and I hope things get easier for you :-)

Thank you

I was so angry when my boyfriend joined the Air Force because I felt like he was choosing to leave me alone for months at a time. I wasn't supportive at all until the day he left for BMT, which was 2 weeks ago. I still don't like the fact he's gone but his decision to do this with his life will really benefit us in the end. Just be encouraging and ask him questions about everything that is going on, it shows you're interested. I don't have any children, but having your son will keep you busy and hopefully help you take your mind off things while your man is gone!

Thank you
