Photo taken by Rosie, from the northeast of England, in a city called Newcastle. She has experienced depression due to many different issues going on in her life. Thankfully she has a wonderful lady in her life now, who is going through depression along with her. They are both improving due to each other’s company, and are very happy together.
About this photo: “This is my fiancé with the rose I bought her when I asked her to marry me. She said yes without hesitation, and made me easily the happiest girl alive in that moment. She’s the other reason I am coping at all, without her (like now, as she is on holiday), I struggle to focus on everyday tasks. It’s a relief knowing that as soon as she returns from her holiday, she will not be going anywhere, and we have our whole life together, to have kids in one way or another, and we plan to have a lot of cats! We are each other’s ribbons, we tie ourselves back together when we fall apart. She suffers from depression also, but we are fighters, and I have never been so happy with someone in my entire life. She makes the troughs of my depression seem less unbearable, and the peaks, beyond brilliant.”
