Did you PCS this summer? Summer is traditionally when military families move. This means there is a lot of transition going on during this time of year. New location, new house, new school (if you have kids), new job for your spouse and maybe even a new job for you as well. Whew, that is a LOT of new! Throw into the mix a deployment and making new friends, well the whole process can get extremely overwhelming.
We have been at our current location just over a year and the process of making those new connections and new friends has been a tough one. So, if you are struggling to make new friends at your new location, I completely understand!
Here are some tips that have helped me in the process and I hope they help you too. I'd love to hear your ideas, look for the discussion link at the end of this post.
All of these are just options to getting connected and opportunities to make new friends. When our spouses are deployed, it is so easy to isolate ourselves.
I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone, even if that means you introduce yourself to a fellow milspouse at the commissary or NEX (I've done this too)!
How do you make new friends when your spouse is deployed? Is it different when he/she is home? Connect and share your advice.
Make New Friends, but Keep the Old!
