Career Transition

BECOMING A CIVILIAN AND/OR CIVILIAN FAMILY

At the start of the year David became a ‘Civilian’ and I become a member of a ‘Civilian Family Member”.  I must admit although it is an exciting journey for us, it is also sometimes a lonely and isolating journey at times.

I asked David at the weekend

“Was it easy for you to leave the Defence Force?”. 

He answered:

EASIER THAN I THOUGHT!

When I reflected, I responded:

HARDER THAN I THOUGHT!

What has your experience been or/and what do you think it will be like for you  if you have not left yet and more importantly why?  Would love to know what you think.  Even if only to prove to David I am right, it is harder than you think.
