Anonymous asked: Hey Rachel, I wanted to ask you for advice. My man is in the Army he was suppose to come home last month but he didn't up coming at all because he had a emergency couple months ago that dealt with family. we are both not sure when he is coming back to his home state again for his leave. i wanted to get out of this bummed out funk. i don't want it to affect me all summer. How can i let it go? realize he will come later on but not now!
You have to remember that this comes with the territory of being in a relationship with someone who’s in the military — the separation. You’ll have to understand that shit happens and you’ll have to live with the consequences of his career. If you love him enough, it’ll be easy. You’ll need to find ways to stay connected with him, whether it be skyping, writing letters, talking on the phone, etc. I know quite a few people who have had successful relationships with people in the military and i also know people who break up because they can’t handle it. You’ll have to decide which one you want to be. :)
