ARMY WIFE TIP OF THE DAY
Its okay to cry and to ask for help: This is more directed at the wives/girlfriends who's spouses are currently deployed, but please, please, please never forget these simple things. Yes it is okay to cry! Even if its something silly like a commercial that reminds you of your loved one. Why wouldn't it be okay to cry? Your heart is hurting, and you are sad. Cry all you want. But don't forget that you have other responsibilities that you have to take care of -a job, your kids, etc. Hold your head up high for them, but that doesn't mean you have to be the strongest woman on the planet 24/7. Along those lines, ask for help when you need it! We can't do the job of two people. Its just not how we're programmed. If you need a day off, take your kids to a friends/parents house. Or day care. Take a day off work. Do something for yourself where you don't have to worry about anyone or anything else. We all struggle, but you will burn yourself out if you try to take on 100% of everything 100% of the time.
