Husband writes moving message on mirror for wife struggling with depression

Grab the tissues!

One woman who's been battling depression says her new husband "seems to get the whole 'for better, for worse' thing."

Imgur user mollywho shared proof of that point in the form of a message he wrote to her across their bedroom mirror.

The moving note — which features a list of 15 reasons he loves her — was meant to help her see herself the way he sees her.

Highlights from the loving list include, "she is my best friend," "she's the kindest person I know" and "she snorts when she laughs."

Mollywho wrote with her post that she's been through a lot of personal difficulties lately, including balancing work, being a newlywed, penny-pinching and difficulty with friends. Her husband's note was just what she needed to see.

"[A]midst all the struggle, my husband has relentlessly tried to cheer me up," she wrote. "I've not been the easiest person to deal with. In fact, sometimes I've lost all hope and even taken my frustration 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."

And as the mirror shows, his best is pretty amazing.

She added that he, too, has "down days," and "I will be there to hold his hand, just like he holds mine."
