“For the first 5 years of my and my SO’s relationship I was suicidal and depressed due to some trauma I went through before we met. After the 5 year mark we moved and I started going to school. During this time I changed a lot and became a lot happier and more stable and had a lot of energy. My SO was in total disbelief and told me he couldn’t believe how much I was flourishing in this new environment. It took a little bit of adjustment for the both of us. I was no longer as dependent on him and he tried to get to know the new me and figure out his new role now that he was no longer in a caregiving role but was just a regular boyfriend. Ever since that move our relationship has gotten better and better. Lockdown was a massive level up for us too. We were stuck together for months and discovered so many new things about one another and we have only grown closer since. It sometimes feel like we did our relationship in reverse and now we are experiencing the honeymoon phase a decade into the relationship. I love him so much and he’s my soul mate. I will spend the rest of my life showing him how much I love and appreciate him.” — advicemovingon
