For those who know me, I am a very tolerable person. There aren't many things I dislike or many things that bug me, but there is one thing that really grinds my gears. This may be an "unpopular opinion", but I can't stand it when I see other people letting their significant other define them, particularly when your signigicant other is in the military. I see many young women who are seem to heavily define themselves based off of their boyfriends/fiances/husbands jobs, and it bothers me.
One thing I see are blogs who are solely dedicated to their man's job, and to me, it just doesn't seem right. Honestly, I would think it a little weird if Daniel had an entire blog dedicated to the fact that I'm an engineering student or something along those lines. There is much more to you than what your guy or gal does for a living, you are your own individual.
And yes, I also know that being in a relationship with someone in the military is hard, and some people seem to wear that as a badge of sorts, but many relationships are difficult. It also bothers me when people 'wear' the fact that their guy is in the military as another sort of badge. Like with those "Proud military girlfriend" t-shirts and similar merchandise, like I said previously, that's like having your boyfriend's job define you. Be proud of your loved one, but be proud of them no matter what they do. Would you still have that sense of pride if they were doing another profession, and were never in the military?
I guess this is the end of my rant. I hope nothing I said offended anybody, that was not nor ever will be my intention.
