Dear God

I come to you at this time to say sorry. I’m sorry for not following the path that you laid before me. I know only your way is the right way Lord but yet I allowed myself to be misguided. I ask for forgiveness and although your love is unconditional I know I don’t deserve it . I promise to never put another before you . So as I lay here with tears coming down my face I say sorry . Please forgive me .

Love , Liz

There will come a time in your life when you become absolutely infatuated with a single soul. For this person, you’d do anything & not think twice about it, but when asked why, you have no answer. You’ll try your whole life to understand how a single person can affect you as much as they do, but you’ll never find out. & no matter how badly it hurts or how badly you hate it, you’ll love this person for the rest of your life without regret.

- The Invisible War sounds ridiculously familiar but whatever it is, it isn’t coming to mind.
- As a queer person, well…. I’m not sure on the prevalence because queerness isn’t something that’s often talked about in a military setting, unless you’re referring to homophobia. As someone socialized as a female though, yes definitely. I’m currently in a unit that is 99% males.  Often times, line units like this are banned from drinking because of the high rate of sexual assaults/sexual harassment that occurs. 
Even just the other night, my battle-buddy (coworker) was being harassed by 3 males much larger than her who felt as though since she were single, she was free game even though she had openly told them “no” several times. 
That male privilege really flows with the alcohol though.
- Female presenting people are definitely the heaviest targeted when it comes to sexual assault/sexual harassment, although POC at a greater rate (both male and female presenting).

Thanks for the question!

Love the response !
