It’s a military thing. .
This has been my motto.
EMBRACE THE SUCK.
The wait kills. It’s frustrating and demanding at the same time. It’s hard to focus on other things when you’re just so anxious to get to that point already. 23 days. 23 days left till he graduates AIT. After that, can things go back to how they were? LOL. Who am I kidding? The second he stepped foot at Fort Leonard Wood, things changed. He changed. It’s true. The military changes them. I never once thought of being a military significant other, must less Be one. Then he happened. He came around and just made me step out of my comfort zone in so many levels. I’m not saying that because he’s changed, it’s all downhill from here on out, no. I’m saying that I miss how things were. But I know that things will find its way. The changes of him being a civilian to a becoming a US soldier will be a stepping stone for us to reconnect. He’s changed the past four and a half months that he’s been gone, so have I. “Things will get better” he said. The short ended.conversations, the sleepless nights, the waiting, the counting the days… it’ll be over soon. I just.. need to keep on standing my ground. After all this is over, I’d be one happy girl when I can talk to him whenever I want. When I can see him whenever I want. Have him.
Embrace the suck.
All this waiting will do justice. It’ll suffice. It’ll clarify the situation’s durability. It’ll be worth it.
I’m proud of him. He’s changed so much. He amazes me. The thought that he’s gna graduate in 23 days …. it feels like forever ago but time flew by.. it was February when he left for BCT .. the person he’s become since he’s been gone. The person I’ll meet as a soldier. The person I’ll acknowledge as my husband. He chose this path. I chose him. And because of that, whatever decisions he makes, I’ll fully support.
I’m counting the days.
May you understand that it hasn’t been the easiest but I’ve held on for you. I gave you my word. I’ve held on. May you appreciate that I’ve learned to EMBRACE THE SUCK because of your importance to me. We’ve got distance to fight through and closeness to fight for.
