Imgur user “mollywho” recently got married. But with a history of depression behind her, she’s been going down a bumpy road. Work has been particularly tiring, her social circle has been shrinking, and now she’s in the midst of navigating a brand-new marriage.
In a post that’s now going viral, mollywho confesses she took her anger and frustration out on her new husband by throwing insults and negativity his way — but it’s how he reacted that’s spreading online like wildfire.
After returning home from a trip to San Francisco, mollywho collapsed into bed. She felt terrible for being so cruel to her husband, but was too exhausted to try and pick up the pieces. But that’s when she looked up at her closet mirror and saw it. While she was out of town, her husband scribbled a message for her right there on the glass.
It seems he had some choice words for her…
You have to see this!
“I’ve been juggling a LOT lately. Trying to move up the (ahem) corporate ladder. Just got married. Couldn’t afford a wedding. Family is sparse. Falling out with friends, yaddadyadda. But, the thing is, amidst all the struggle, my husband has relentlessly tried to cheer me up. I’ve not been the easiest person to deal with. In fact, sometimes I’ve said the cruelest most hateful words to my new husband. But he somehow forgives me every time. I have a long journey ahead of me, and I know he probably realizes I’m mentally ill. But he holds my hand, and he tries his best.”
Today when I came home from a trip to SF, I flopped onto my bed in tears. I looked to my left, and saw these words painted all across my mirror. I think he wanted me to remember how much he loves me. Because he knows how quickly I forget. He knows I struggle to see good in the world, and especially the good in myself. But here it is. A testament and gesture of his love. Damn, I needed it today…”
That’s right… this doting husband took a Sharpie and scribbled a list onto her closet mirror. “Reasons I love my wife,” he titled it. There were 15 of them — a collection of funny, emotional, and honest reasons.
“She makes me laugh every day,” “She’s the kindest person I know,” and “She has experienced severe tragedy yet is the most optimistic person about humanity that I know” are just a few.
Her expression in the mirror says it all. She’s overwhelmed, completely stunned, and touched to tears.
Hopefully this powerful testament is enough to remind her that she is loved.
Not only is her husband’s message written in permanent marker, but I have a feeling he’s there to stay, too.
Sometimes, it’s easy to try and push away those we need the most — but it’s clear her husband is living up to the strong partner he has vowed to be. If you agree, please SHARE this with your friends on Facebook!
