The Lonely Diplomat started a conversation about how diplomats, their significant others and families balance this all-consuming job and their wish to be human and have human connections.
“Diplomatic spouses of the world, unite!” continues this conversation from the perspective of a diplomatic spouse, Georgie.
If you don’t know Georgie, you certainly know the type of person she is. Everyone needs a Georgie in their lives to call them forward when they’re not living up to their potential. Every diplomatic mission either needs, or has, a Georgie in their community – be they a posted diplomat or a spouse. The Georgies of the world – and this Georgie, in particular – are those who muck in, do what needs doing and make sure that everyone is well looked after. Diplomatic missions can run on the goodwill of these diplomatic spouses who do what needs to be done to get it done.
This is Georgie’s story. In Georgie’s words.
Let’s look after all of the Georgies in our lives!
