Life-Saving Lessons You’d Learn From Military Spouses

When you need a piece of advice to understand your better half or significant other, make your marriage work or even save the relationship, they say the best person to run to is a military spouse. With that in mind, we pull off some of the best lessons in life that these military wives personally experienced over the years.

You Can Do More

Yes, even more than you can ever imagine. Just keep on reminding yourself that you can do anything that you wish to especially when your partner is not around. You can do all the household chores, take good care of your home, the kids, and even the pets, too without any major issues. You can do all these things while you wait for your love.

How appreciative you could be of the simple things in life, like Skype and text messages when he’s in port. Also, how much strength you both have, how love is stronger than distance, and that as a couple, you can get through anything together no matter what.

People May Not Really Understand Your Lifestyle, But Most Are Actually Willing To Try

We all know that only military spouses can truly understand what it’s like to be a military spouse. The average person can’t really wrap their mind around what deployments or PCS are like, but it’s also right to know that most people are very willing to listen and try to understand.

Folks are probably afraid to ask too many questions because they worry about saying something wrong, but, most of the times, those same group of people is oftentimes the best listeners. Feel free to open up a little bit and see what happens!

You Are Stronger Than You Thought You Were

Conquer your fears and find the pleasure of being strong, independent, and empowered. Know that you can always become a better wife and more loving mother you’ve always wanted. Bottom-line: however strong you think you are I know you’re a hundred times stronger. So don’t give up. Don’t you dare give up!

One “mil spouse” said that “I found how independent I am and how strong we actually are apart though distance stood between us nothing tore us apart, it is not easy it is hard to always stay strong and etc., but I remembered each new day was one day closer to the end of deployment. And that’s what I learned not just about myself but about my marriage and holding on to our vows.”

People Can Be Really Supportive If You Let Them

Being military spouses has taught them just how willing people are to help because they admire and appreciate the sacrifices being made by their better halves. It could be anything from donating to a care package, shopping at a military-owned business, or bringing you a meal during deployment. The good thing is that people actually want to help, but everyone has just to let them.

We know that asking for (and accepting help) can be really difficult for anyone of us, especially military spouses, who so often have to be exceptionally independent.  But there’s nothing wrong with letting people help you. In fact, it can be both rewarding for both of you: the sender and the recipient.

Understand That You Have To Learn How To Appreciate Your Spouse And His Profession

You’d be surprised that once you’ve learned how to appreciate what he and others do for this country, you feel a lot better, not to mention how you help your partner boost their self-esteem and self-worth. This trick actually works wonders: Love and support him even when your thousands of miles away and most of all, love and appreciate him, his service, his dedication, pillow talks and every little thing he does that make you smile!

It’s a fact that military spouses come in all different races, sizes, ages, and genders. Military spouses are a diverse group and each of them needs a helping hand and an understanding heart.

More than anything, make sure that you also pass the good deeds on by being an inspiration to your fellow military spouses, their better halves, and families, too.

With that, it becomes contagious and eventually makes this world a better place to live in, especially for military forces, their spouses and kids, too.
