When You Feel AloneLife as a military spouse can be so amazing and exciting, but also isolating at times. What do you do when you just feel…alone? It can appear that everyone else has it together, but guess what? They don’t, either!

One of the biggest themes of my military spouse life has been lack of control. Just when I think I've settled in and figured things out, everything changes. Maybe you relate! Whether you’ve recently moved, your spouse is deployed, or you’re going through some other challenge, living ‘in the pause’ can be frustrating. But it can also be a time of growth.

On this episode, we're talking about those relatable feelings, along with strategies to move forward. Most of all, be reminded that you are not alone!
