Default A Look Back: Things you wish you knew or did before he

Hi Ladies and Gents

I was going to write a post for a few helpful hints and tips on the coming home forum for those that are waiting for their loved ones and would love to add a bit more before I post it and get some other perspectives/tips

What are some things you wish you knew or did before your loved one came home? What are some things that you did do in preparation that you glad you did?

You know what's funny is I was overly prepared both mentally and physically, the problem wasn't myself, but him. He was not. He had unrealistic expectations of how everything was going to fall into place no matter how much I tried to prepare him for it. The major thing was employment. He thought he was going to come home and find an awesome job right away, just like that. I tried to mentally prepare him for the opposite. I told him things may not happen the way he wanted them to. What he thought was going to be a job search that lasted a matter of weeks, turned into a job search that lasted several months (for the right job anyway). To sum it up, in my opinion making a great attempt to mentally prepare our loved ones on dealing with trials and tribulations of the outside world is a great task that requires attention.
