Hey, our system thinks you're a bot.
All we need is that one tiny lifeline to keep us here, and, for me, on that sunny Sunday in December , my lifeline was a rock band, and the only thing that kept me here was the intense disappointment that, if I died then, I would never get to hear them live. These imaginary conversations, this imaginary relationship with you? Is this okay, too, or does it just make me crazy? When I am suicidal, I live every single day in crisis.
Do I Love Her? 25 Clearest Signs to Answer this Big Question
My only goal, every single day, is to get through another morning, another afternoon, another evening. Like some people keep emergency routes and emergency kits, I keep a suicide plan I edit and review for whenever the day comes that I might need it. I know that major depression and suicidal ideation are simply things I have to live with, that will continue recurring in my life, and I am always aware that, one day, the pain in my brain may get so bad that I will finally succeed in taking my own life.
When it comes to mental illness, we are unfortunately our best advocates. I can feel another episode coming on. She has parents who saw who she was behind her desperate attempts to play a part, parents who pushed her toward culinary school, toward better life decisions, toward accepting her sexuality. I trust her because, whatever she has been through, she has come to a place where she knows who she is and that is it okay for her to live her truth.
She said as much at an event on a sunny afternoon in Los Angeles: I struggled a lot with self-identity and self-worth and who am I and what am I going to do? She seems kind, and she stays away from drama; she keeps her head down, focused on just doing what she does so well. She is still vibrant and alive and cute as hell.

She is still someone I implicitly trust, and, three years later, I still believe that, if she were to know all this about me, she would be kind. Shame works in secret; it operates and thrives in silence. Fundamentally, I want the same things most people want: I want to be loved, to be valued, to be wanted. I want people to like me. I want to live a productive, fulfilling life doing work that means something and helps someone.
I want to love and be loved. I want to be known and recognized. Her irritation endears her to me more, and her dedication to her craft and the discipline that ultimately led her to her own kitchen keep my faith in her. And then there is the part of me that sees myself in her, that same irritation at the possibility of being reduced down to my suicidal depression, to my sexuality, to my gender. But how do you show it? Knowing how may not come easy or naturally to everyone. Appreciating a person can be done in many ways.
Talk respectfully to her. Compliment her.

Be specific, so she knows you really mean it, and be genuine. Be forgiving. There is no better way to love someone than to openly forgive and forget. Holding a grudge will not improve your relationship. Consider her opinion before making a decision. Ask her what she thinks and honestly consider it.
Try to show interest in things she enjoys. Does she like cooking? Help her! Does she like sports? Play it with her! Does she like art? Watch it with her! Set goals together. If you know from each other what you are working toward, it is easier to support each other. Also, having goals together will bring you closer. Admit your mistakes. Being open and honest, showing that you too are imperfect will make her feel closer to you. Have her back.
If you get in a situation where you have to choose between your woman and others, choose her. Especially when it is a situation with your family. Give her a mini massage, like a backrub. The joy of touch is incredibly healing and bonding. She takes care of you all the time, so show her you appreciate that by taking care of her. Peacefully listen and talk. When having a conversation, look her in the eye.
Show her that you are listening. Spend as much time as possible with her. She wants to feel like she is the most important person in the world to you. Spending time is the number one thing you do with the number one person in your life. Put effort into looking good. Workout, shave, shower, put on some deodorant. There is no clear litmus test to love. With so much gray area, it is difficult to figure out if she is the one for you or the one for this week. It is about wanting to spend the rest of your life making the rest of her life amazing.
When a man is in love, he moves mountains to make his woman happy, puts himself in front of a bullet to save her, and defend her to his very last breath. Although dramatic sounding, that is truly what being in love is about. These 25 signs might answer your question, do I love her?
Being in love means that she means the world to you. If you burst at the seams to tell your girl all the good things that come your way before anyone else, that is a good sign you love her. Even more critical, she becomes your emergency call. Plus, you have a bat signal you want to throw up to have her at your side during the super bad stuff, then that is a sign of trust and support, which equals love.
The first person you think of when the shit hits the fan is the person you trust to love you unconditionally.
2. Nothing can separate the two of you.
Even if you say she is being a bitch, someone else best not. If you are in love with someone, you can say negative things about them, but if someone else does, then it is feuding words! It is giving of yourself to gain something so much more beautiful back, her. We find things in the people we love that we want to carry on and be a part of for an eternity.
