My boyfriend’s career path

Last night the bf and I were talking about his firefighting goal, and all of the challenges that come along with it. The one I try not to think of the most is how becoming a firefighter will add so many risks to his life. I just pray that we’ll never have to get have to get disability insurance quotes for him due to a work accident. But the good news is he studies all the time, and he is determined to be the best he can be. Not only will this make him more employable, but it will help keep him safe.

Still, I can’t help but wish sometimes that he had chosen a career path that was more subdued, or safer. Then again, if he did that, he wouldn’t be my boy. He would never be happy with a simple office job or anything easy. He would only be truly happy at something that challenges him every day. I know he’s going to be an excellent firefighter, despite the dangers.  And I know that having a boyfriend (and maybe oneday husband) that is happy with his career choice will be worth every bit of stress and worry it took to get him there. I know the road to his career won’t be easy, but I’ll be there for him every step of the way.

One thought on “My boyfriend’s career path

  1. My hubby isn’t happy in an office either. He’d rather risk his life on a boat or in a helicopter. Think of all the lives that he’ll save doing what he does. I try to always focus on the positive. I hope that the negative NEVER comes….but I try to prepare myself in the back of my mind JUST IN CASE. Hopefully I’ll never need to take that off the back burner though.

    Be strong for him. Understand that sometimes he won’t want to talk about what happened at work. Not because he doesn’t want to share it with you…but because he doesn’t want your thoughts to be burdened with the same images his are.

    For the most part…he’ll love his job and you’ll love being with a man that is a hero.
