A woman who goes by the online name of Mollywho, recently posted to social media explaining that she was having a hard time in life. She let her followers know that she and her husband had just gotten married, but couldn’t afford to have a wedding. She also shared that she was trying her best to get ahead on her job, and was having issues with friendships and family relationships.
After a long day at work, she came home and threw herself on the bed, exhausted and emotionally drained. She looked up from the bed to find that her husband had written a note for her on the mirror. The note contained all the reasons he loved and appreciated his wife. The husband stated that he loved his wife because she was determined, and never gave up on him or herself. He also said that she makes him laugh, and that she’s his best friend.
Needles too say, this was just the motivation the woman needed to feel better and to spend more time focusing on the positive aspects of her life. She later shared on social media that her husband knows the meaning of “for better or worse” when it comes to marriage vows, and expressed gratitude for the fact that her husband made the effort to cheer her up and remind her why she is special to him.
Mollywho explained that she suffers from mental illness, and is grateful to have a husband who has been supportive through all her ups and downs.

Trying to do well at work. 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 lost all hope and even taken my anger out on 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 depressed. 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…I'm not saying mental illness is cured by nice words on a mirror. In fact, it takes professional care, love, empathy, sometimes even medication just to cope. Many people struggle with it mental illness – more than we probably even realize. And instead of showing them hate or anger when they act out. Show them kindness and remind them things can and WILL get better. Everyone needs a little help sometimes. If that person can't be you – see if you have any resources for therapy.EDIT: The thing is… I am not "too good" or "not good enough" for my husband. We all have our down days. And sometimes we don't handle it well. BUT, we are partners. He is here for me when I'm down. And I cherish that. And he has his down days, too. And I will be there to hold his hand, just like he holds mine. Life can be hard. The answer is never to mock, scoff, or belittle someone. Be kind. Be the best version of yourself. And be most of all- be patient.I'm still struggling, but I'm glad I have my other half to help me make it through. It may just be a few words on my mirror, but I'll look at them when I wake up and know I'm not alone. I'll know I have my bestfriend, my co-pilot in life to help guide me through.
