Two Weeks Down

My man has been deployed for 2 weeks now and it's still pretty hard, I started tearing up when he text me to tell me "i love you"! When does it get easier? I'm trying to have the strength to get through this because I know I'll see him when he comes home but I feel like Ive kind of list a small piece of my heart!

I hate to say this but it never really gets easier. If you have a routine that you do everyday then that is good. Stick to it. If you don't it'll make the time go by faster if you get a routine. My boyfriend was on deployment for 7 months and what got me through it was 1) my family and 2) i kept telling myself that everyday that went by was one day closer to seeing him again. If you are on good terms with your family then that will make it easier especially around the holidays. If you have made it the first two weeks you will be fine. There will be moments where you will break down but that's ok. No one expects you to be strong 100% of the time. Just take it one day at a time. If you need someone to talk to you can always message me. :)
