Hi everyone out there! I am Norwegian and my boyfriend, Mahmut, is Turkish. We have been together for a while now, and he is now in the army to do his time. He has been there now for 4 months and have left 8 months. I've come here because I was hoping if there is anyone that has been in a similar situation that could maybe help me with some advice and support on how to still keep my head up and basically hang on, because right now I am at a breaking point. The thing is that in April he was supposed to get a vacation time where we finally were gonna see each other again, and it's also our anniversary. This is something we have been counting down for and been excited about for a very long time. The problem now is that he told me today that when he gets his vacation time he has to work, and because of that there is no point in me going there when I won't get to see him during that time. He knows how upsetting that makes me, but then again I understand some what why he has to work. We are used to being 1 month apart where I go back to Norway, and after 1 month I get to see him again. So being away from him this long is really hard and I have never been through this before so I don't know how, or how to think, to be able to still keep my head up and hang on at this point. Many tell me to keep myself occupied and do activities at all times to make time go by faster, but my problem is that I am unemployed right now and struggling to get a job, and my life is not exactly exciting. I know that I don't want to give up on our relationship and I am trying so hard to keep it all together, but right now, after he told me he can't be able meet me in April, I have a hard time accepting the fact I have to wait until he's finished until I get to see him. I know I should not be complaining about this, and that there is people out there that don't get to see their loved ones for years, and it also might sound very selfish to some people. But like I said I have never been in this type of relation ship and I don't know how to keep myself both physically and mentally "stable" for this situation, and that's where I need some help. Thank you and I appreciate that you are taking your time for this!!
