Being a military girlfriend/wife/fiance is super hard. It makes you horribly lonely and you get depressed a lot thinking about how far away your significant other is. Being away from the person you know you’re going to spend the rest of your life with is so much torture. It sucks not having anyone who truly understands what I’m going through. But it also made our relationship so much stronger and when we finally see each other it’s the best feeling ever. I’m so lucky and I wouldn’t trade any of the loneliness or tearful nights for anything else. Just 187 days to go. And I can do it.
