You may or may not find that sometimes loving a first responder can prove difficult not because they are bad people. In fact, it’s just the opposite. They are phenomenal people with a moral desire to serve the public.
You will find that first responders take on a astronomical risk, they work long hours and allot of times have to force a smile after a 12 hour shift. From seeing death, poverty and the most heinous acts of crime you could imagine, the job eventually takes its toll. Sometimes you may or may not see your partner for days and when you do, all they can think of sleep, eat and by the time that’s done with, their duties to serve are at the front door again.
With all that being said, the question remains. How to cope with it? Taking on the job as a Police wife, husband, girlfriend and or boyfriend is almost like taking on the job yourself. You must posses the same qualities, traits and desire as if you personally wear the uniform.
You will find that you need patience, preservearance and an unwavering ability to cope and manage stress. You will have to learn to manage other people’s stress and become a problem solver. You will learn to remain calm even when everything around you is chaotic.
While it may be hard to sometimes love a first responder, the truth remains that they are people too and have dedicated their life to protecting us, and to love one, you must posses the same courage that they do. Courage is in the heart, and that’s what it will require.
Love you’re first responder ❤️❤️?? and you will not regret it!
