The Short of the Long

2018 and 2019 were wrought with soaring highs and dark lows, one of which brought about a suicide attempt. Thankfully, the third week of July 2019 brought about the most wonderful, life changing connection. I have never known a man to love me for who I am, only who he thought he could mold me into. Through the most recent ex, the one who was so distant and cold after I got home from the psych ward, I met the man who would change my perspective on life. He has loved me like no other before could, and for him I am forever grateful.

I had forgotten my medication a couple days in a row and had a breakdown while he was over at his friend’s place watching football. When I messaged him about my state of mind, he was home. He stayed by me, even after I fell asleep from emotional exhaustion. He held me, comforted me, and wiped my tears away.

The last couple of years have been brutal inside my mind – living with someone who can’t seem to make up their mind about a relationship, then finding someone who wants all the things I want in a relationship. We have our own friends, our families love both of us, and most of all we love each other. We get along so well, and like so many of the same things.

For you, my mountain, I am forever grateful.
