Words of Advice

With a lot of stuff I have seen going on in the blogging community lately and even in real life, I have had a few thoughts that I wanted to share. Yes, it is completely unsolicited but take them for what they are.

Love is love is love. It's that simple.

All of us Military Significant Other's need to keep in mind that even though we are super-women, sometimes our capes wont fly. Don't stress, take a deep breath and a step back and realize that what will be, will be.

Missing someone longer is not missing someone more.

If you think that taking the time to say something negative or downright mean is okay, you obviously have never considered the alternative of putting your energy into kindness, support, and love. Its like frowning instead of smiling. It takes a whole lot more muscles and makes you look ugly.

Good advice. Goes with what I am always thinking - stay united. This isn't a competition! :)

Amen to that! We should be there for each other and remember that we're not alone. It shouldn't be the time to attack someone (not that it ever should). Sometimes we find strength through others and I don't know about you, but I need it especially when my spouse is deployed or even just gone for a weekend or a couple weeks. We should be able to count on our MilSpouse friends.

Wholeheartedly agree! Thanks for sharing!

Adrienne said...

And it takes even less muscles just to give those turds the finger! Heheh. Kidding. :)

No you're right, I wish everyone would just realize we are all in the same boat. And whether you have been married one week, one month, one year, ten years, twenty... (you get it) its all the same love. And missing your love SUCKS!!

Agreed! Very simply stated....

BTW...I've missed you! We were like 2 ships passing in the night. But we are now both back in the go of things!

Thinking of you!!!!

Thank you for this post. It seems a lot of spouses like to play the, "who has it worse game." That's when we have to step back and see we're married to the same military and have the same battles. We just need to support each other.

Allie said...

So agree. We aren't in competition... it is important for people to realize that!
