In my last post's title I stated Keep calm and stay busy. Today I'd like to clarify that I was just jumping on the "keep calm" bandwagon, because I thought it was cute. After remaining calm and taking care of whatever just broke or cleaning the vomit off your shirt then it is perfectly acceptable to throw a hissy fit. Vent, yell, cry....just get it out.
I will be the first to admit that I cry and break down. I
think it's healthy to do so every once in a while. Or maybe you aren't
that type of person. If so then this need not apply.
Sometimes you just
need to vent that your time with your spouse was too short or you
haven't gotten an email in a week. Sometimes you just need to cry
because your son woke up and ran around the house looking for a "Da-Da"
that isn't there. Sometimes you just NEED to breakdown because you MISS
I think tears come with the territory of being a military spouse. You
are not weak because you cry. You are stronger because the tears mean
this lifestyle hasn't made you numb. You still miss him as much as you
did the first time he ever left, if not more. I think that means
something. So, go right ahead and vent or have an all out Southern hissy
fit. I'll be here to listen.
