Oh I feel your pain all too well. Being with a military man is a catch 22 – you could never be with anyone else as their drive, motivation, dedication, bravery, strength, EVERYTHING is just incredible, but the reality of everyday life and the utter heartbreak of deployments is so horrendous. 

My advice is that you need to enjoy this time by yourself, do things you want to do, keep yourself busy with your friends and remember that the moment you see him again at the airport it will be (almost) worth every moment of pain and loneliness you’ve had during this deployment. 

My FI isn’t due back until December and we get married January 3rd. I deal with it by not thinking about where is he or what he’s doing (he isn’t deployed, just ‘away’), and I just remember that even though he is away it doesn’t mean my life is on hold. 

Hope you are ok. I’m here if you ever need a chat – just message me x
