My DH did a job that I hated him having for 8 years --- gone every weekend, missed family functions.....beautiful women around him while he worked. Ugh. How do you cope? Well I reached a point of realization that if HE is not happy --- WE ALL end up paying, so I accepted it. Not easy, but I did for the sake of my sanity and happiness.
Take it one....day......at.........a time.
Is he going to be driving OTR or local?
My hubbydrives a hauls steel, locally. It's not that I hate what he does, but anytime I hear of an accident, involving a semi, on the highway, my stomach does a flop. I send him a text and wait for a reply and I feel bette once I get it.
I am very thankful that he refuses to go OTR.
its like with any thing in life you just deal with it.. . you cant change it or the past so you just go with it because thats what he has chosen to be a provider for the family.. you can not base the rest of life's events on what happened to one person you cared about... things happen all the time there is no guarantee of tomorrow only today... just pray for peace and protection:)
My husband has a job that is high stress and requires that he be on call 24/7. It's interrupted vacations, family plans, etc. If I'm honest, there are times when I have a really hard time with it. But he loves his job. Not all parts of it, obviously, but overall he loves what he does and he's good at it. Ultimately that's what matters. I'm proud of him for what he does and there are those times when I just have to grin and bear it.
