I'm Missing My Boyfriend Of 4 Years Whos Now Gotta Do A 4 Year Prison Sentence!

The names Courtney, My boyfriend of 4 years has recently gone to prison to complete a 4 year sentence and I miss him so much that I cry everynight laying in my bed. All we can do is write and talk on the phone when we can. I don't have the funds to suport me on my own and him in lock down so I can only send money when I can. All he has is me, his family has turned is back on him and no matter what we've gone through I can't do that to him no matter what has happened. Through the letters and the phone calls I can tell hes a different person but is that jail talk? Am i wishing hes a changed person? I'm a college student getting my degree in nursing and my childhood wasnt a good one so I'm tryin to make a better life for myself but I couldn't picture doing that without him by myside even though 4 years is a long time! He could always get parole but theres only a slim chance of that. I'm so confused on what to do. I wish someone could give me advice I really need it right now!!! I'm in love with him and miss him more then anything and will hold it down for him but only if things will be different when he gets out. how do i know for sure?!? if anyones got advice or thoughts or anything please comment thanks!

sometimes mija.. decisions we make based on being in love is a risk.. n if you're down for him let it be a risk you're willing to take, better to risk it than to not know how it could of end up.. good or bad. n aye when he gets out n he's acting up n going back to his old ways, **** it at least you CAN say you were there n waited for a long time, unlike other ******* whoring around behind their man's back babygurl my man is actually in camp but he'll be out in a month, different situations but same feelings so ik how you feel, I'm only 15 n am going to high school and college just because i want the best for us. gangsters need love they need a lot of love and youu know when they get out of control its not really their fault.. living a life like that, aint easy cause people do nothing but brainwash you.. so i wish you and your man the best <3 stay up babygurl

They do promise things while they are jail or prison because they have alot of time to think, after he is out its up to you to keep him focused on his word.
