As a military wife I found myself by myself. A lot. I chose to leave the workforce to stay home with my children. When my husband was gone for 7-8 months at a time I felt it. To my core. It was lonely and a lot of work. I realize though, it isn’t only military wives who are in this situation. Does your husband travel? Are you left by yourself to be mommy, daddy, maid, chef, doctor, nurse and teacher? Maybe not for big chunks of time, but on any sort of regular basis?
It is overwhelming and scary. Perhaps you are the other extreme, you feel relieved and relish in the moments all by your lonesome?
Either way, the burden is heavy and you can’t do it alone. Well you aren’t alone. You aren’t the only one. There will be others that go through this too. But that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from some tips and encouragement to help you along.
