"As far as being lonely and resentful, I struggle with those things daily. Loneliness is easier to overcome as I can find ways to stay busy so I don’t think about it as much.
But resentment . . . I have to fight against it every day and it has to be a choice. I have to choose joy and contentment over resentment. Some days this is much easier than others! This is the career my [boyfriend] has chosen and he’s really good at it. I can either choose to embrace it and support him or resent him and be miserable. The more I support him and encourage him, even if it’s really hard and I miss him terribly, the happier we both are and our home is a much better place for him to come home to."
