I love this! I struggle with mild depression occasionally (due to ongoing health issues) certain that I'm a disappointment to my husband of 13 years, who didn't sign up for a wife with chronic, debilitating pain disorders. But he's still here, loving me.
Absolutely. Expecting others to "love you enough," or claim your happiness is dependent upon the way others treat you is nothing but co dependent, self absorbed, self pitying behavior to keep you from taking responsibility for yourself and your feelings.
