"I met my husband a little over 3 years ago. it was on our second date that I realized just how special he was and how much I wanted to have him in my life long term. I shared something quite personal with him that night and his response was simply a hug and, "thank you so much for sharing that with me. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make this easier for you. I promise I will always help you any way I can and support you so you don't ave to do this alone." It was the last response I expected and exactly what I needed. You see, I have struggled most of my life with my self-worth. I didn't know until then what being in a healthy, equitable, mature partnership was like. I do now. He continues to keep that promise to me everyday and I thank God everyday for bringing me a true partner in life. We make one another the best versions of ourselves and for that I am deeply grateful."
