It can be VERY difficult when he’s away: full stop!!
It doesn’t matter what you do, what people say to try to help, some days can be hard.
I haven’t found a magic cure, the one thing that will make it easier, but I have found that staying focused does help.
Concentrate on the ‘why’- why you are doing the FIFO life, keeping that clear view in sight, gives you something to always be working towards.
If you haven’t already,
Write it down!
Stick it on the fridge!
If its financial, and let’s face it that is the main reason, do you have a financial plan, official or unofficial?
Have you sat down with pen and paper? Drawn up a budget and a plan of where and how the money is going?
I’ve found Kochie’s Business page to be a good resource.
Keeping these financial goals sorted helps takes away some of the heartache of having a Husband/Partner away for long periods of time.
Do you have these goals written down? Have else do you keep focused on the main game?
Thanks for reading! See you next time!!
