EVERYTHING WAS AGAINST US ? – Between @jacob_hazell and I, we have had 3 nervous breakdowns, a mental health hospital stay, many MANY therapy appointments and more anti anxiety meds than you can shake a stick at ? – So really if you think about it, the odds were stacked against us ? – I honestly think neither of us thought it would work out because in a perfect world a relationship where you both struggle with mental health issues probably isn’t really a winning combo ? But the reality is NOTHING is perfect and you can’t help you fall for ? – The amazing thing about both of us having anxiety is that we have created a bond like no other because that’s what mental health does, it bonds people together because you instantly understand each other ☺️ – Sure, it comes with its challenges but as long as you communicate and meet each other’s needs when necessary then it can be absolutely wonderful ❣ – Never rule someone out just because they weren’t who you were expecting to fall for ❌ Never think if you have a few teething problems at first that it’s destined for failure ❌ And never compare your relationship to anyone else’s ❌ – There’s no guide or set rules to relationships, we’re all just making it up as we go along ??♀️ – If you can find someone who accepts you for you then that’s a great place to start ?? – We will both probably always have anxiety but we will also always have each other and that is an extremely nice feeling ❤️ ___________________________________________
Our thoughts are with her family, friends and boyfriend, Jake.
