Thank you

To the colleague who stepped on an emotional land mine today.

And then backed off, and said all the right things, asked questions that showed he cared, not voyeuristically but truly, and ended with out platitudes or any other expression of his feelings. Sometimes it is nice to have support that doesn't hinge on others guilt or interest, but on simple human kindness.

I think that last line sums up why I never told anyone I worked with that my husband (then boyfriend) was deployed until about 5 months into it.

Very insightful observation. I'm glad you have coworkers like that.
