Hello my lovelies, I hope your all good. So this weekend, my life is going to change forever and definitely for the better. In a matter of 3 months, I have fallen completely and madly in love with a man, unexpectedly. This weekend he is leaving his hometown and travelling 244 miles with me to live with me forever. I never move this fast, I like to plan my life and I’ve only known him 5 minutes, yet I love our relationship and our story already.
We met because of my love for his big baggy jumper picture on Instagram, that soon turned to the love of his coffee art on Instagram and Snapchat. We chatted for a couple of weeks and before I knew it, I had booked a hotel room and planned on meeting him in person over the weekend. That weekend changed not only my life, but his and we’ve never looked back since. This man has changed my life in a way he will never know. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you will know that I suffer from Fibromyalgia and last year I was diagnosed with some mental health problems. Fibromyalgia on its own is hard enough for others to understand, so being in a new relationship scared me to see how he would cope with it. So far so good! I never thought I’d actually be on the road to recovery and could never see light at the end of the tunnel when it came to my mental health illnesses. However, he walked into my life at such a perfect time and has given me a reason I feel I should fight my demons and battle through it all. Some of you may know I suffer from Body Dysmorphic Disorder, and he does nothing but worship my body. Because of him, I’m slowly starting to love my body, I’m not saying I’m going to completely love my body by next week because it isn’t that easy, but he’s helping me through it and that’s the main thing.
He’s not only teaching me to love my body, he has given me confidence in myself, helping me face eating struggles, and took away a huge amount of my social anxiety problems. I have had a few slip-ups when it comes to self-harming, but he’s stuck by my side through it all and for that, I can’t thank him enough. He melted away a phobia of travelling to another country by taken me to Paris, supported me through the anxiety of getting on busy Tubes and has just shown me so much in this short time of known each other. He really doesn’t know how much he mean’s to me, he is just so incredible and supportive. No one has ever made me feel this good about myself ever. I literally get the butterflies, racing heart, warm feeling that you’re meant to get when you find the one, as cheesy as that sounds. He doesn’t know how truly amazing he really is and all I can hope is that one day he will finally see it. He’s my rock, my world and so special to me.
This man just stumbled into my life, changed it and made it so much better. I don’t know what life has planned for us but all I know is, it’s going to be an incredible adventure together. Our friendship started with the love of coffee and the love of his baggy jumper and will continue until the end of time.
