the green eyed monster
Sometimes I find it really hard to keep my mouth shut (or fingers from typing) when I hear (or see) someone say "I miss my husband, it's been a whole week" or "I miss my boyfriend when he's at work" or "I never see my husband" (said by someone that sleeps in the same bed as him every night.) I get so mad and frustrated, because I would love to be away from my husband for only a week, I would be so happy if I could miss Jake during one work day, and to sleep in the same bed as him would truly be amazing. every time is see a facebook status like this I fantasize about setting this lady straight, showing her that she has no idea what it means to miss her husband, to have him gone for a year, with an 8 hour time difference, bad internet connection, and to top it all of, in a war zone. but then when I think about it, it's not fair for me to think that I am the only one with the right to miss my significant other. These people aren't trying to be rude, or jerks rubbing it in that they get to see their husbands as often as they do, they really are just trying to spend every second they can with the men they love. and that's exactly what I would do if I could. So essentially I am just being jealous, so if I have said something to you, I'm sorry, this deployment is kind of making me crazy jealous, and i'm really sorry.
