Husband’s list of things he loves about his depressed wife goes viral

depressedYou just got married and things are supposed to be bliss, right? Well, as we all know, it doesn’t always work out that way. Molly Murphy found herself spiraling into depression due to no money for a wedding and some falling out with friends. Her husband Tim valiantly tried to cheer her up, scrawling a list of reasons he loves her on their bathroom mirror.

Viral Thread posted the list,

1. She is my best friend

2. She never quits on herself or me

3. She gives me time to work on my crazy projects

4. She makes me laugh, everyday

5. She is gorgeous

6. She accepts the crazy person I am

7. She’s the kindest person I know

8. She’s got a beautiful singing voice

9. She’s gone to a strip club with me

10. She has experienced severe tragedy yet is the most optimistic person about humanity I know

11. She has been fully supportive about my career choices and followed me each time

12. Without realising it, she makes me want to do more for her than I have ever wanted to do for anyone

13. She’s done an amazing job at advancing her career path

14. Small animals make her cry

15. She snorts when she laughs

Molly was cheered up, writing,

“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.”

To the couple’s surprise, after Tim posted the list on Facebook, it went viral and has been viewed over 500,000 times. Tim wrote, “I scribbled some compliments on a mirror never expecting anyone to see them, not even Molly Murphy. Now it’s gone viral? WTF internet, you cray. I appreciate the kind words though.”

Something about the combination of the sweet words and the method they were delivered touched people and that’s why it went viral. Let’s pray she fully beats the depression, which affects at least 17 percent of the population, women harder than men. Hopefully she knows the Lord, who can bring us out of the depths of despair.
