9️⃣ months ago, I met this man.
8️⃣ months ago, I became this man’s girlfriend.
7️⃣ months ago, I talked about healthy relationships with my therapist because I had the urge to run.
6️⃣ months ago, I reminded myself to live in the present and enjoy his company.
5️⃣ months ago, I wondered why he still wanted to spend time with me.
4️⃣ months ago, I decided to slowly let down my guard.
3️⃣ months ago, my therapist reminded me that it was okay to feel happy.
2️⃣ months ago, I entered into a downward spiral of depression.
1️⃣ month ago, he was still by my side, holding me and doing his best to lead me through my darkness.
2️⃣ weeks ago, he gladly took off work so he could come to family and friends day while I was in a 3 week therapy program.
1️⃣ day ago, I realized that I’m no longer in the darkness of depression and this man is still here. Better yet, he still looks at me with the same intriguing gaze he gave me nine months prior. @ct_rollins thank you for never giving up on me when I gave up on myself ❤️ #emotions #emotionregulation #skillbuilding #veteran #thestruggleisreal #reachout #mentalhealth #22project #ptsd #depression #staystrong #notallwoundsarevisible #veteransupport #suicidepreventionawareness #nostigma #trust #trustingagain #feelingblessed #thismanisamazing #askforhelp #healthyrelationships #allowyourselftoheal
