It is estimated that 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression. According to the World Health Organisation, less than half of those people will ever receive effective treatment due to a lack of resources and the social stigma surrounding mental health.

Devoted Husband Lists All The Reasons He Loves His Wife As She Struggles With Depression

One such sufferer is Molly Murphy. She wrote on Imgur how she’d found herself falling into depression despite the best efforts of her husband, Los Angeles-based engineer Tim Murphy.

“I’ve been juggling a LOT lately. Just got married. Couldn’t afford a wedding. Family is sparse. Falling out with friends, yaddadyadda. But, the thing is, amidst all the struggle, my husband has relentlessly tried to cheer me up," she wrote.

One way he decided to help his wife was by writing all of the reasons he loved her on their bedroom mirror.

The list says:

1. She is my best friend

2. She never quits on herself or me

3. She gives me time to work on my crazy projects

4. She makes me laugh, everyday

5. She is gorgeous

6. She accepts the crazy person I am

7. She's the kindest person I know

8. She's got a beautiful singing voice

9. She's gone to a strip club with me

10. She has experienced severe tragedy yet is the most optimistic person about humanity I know

11. She has been fully supportive about my career choices and followed me each time

12. Without realizing it, she makes me want to do more for her than I have ever wanted to do for anyone

13. She's done an amazing job at advancing her career path

14. Small animals make her cry

15. She snorts when she laughs

Although the scribblings of a loving husband aren’t going to cure her depression, the gesture has been a huge lift.

She wrote: “Today when I came home from a trip to SF, I flopped onto my bed in tears. I looked to my left, and saw these words painted all across my mirror. I think he wanted me to remember how much he loves me. Because he knows how quickly I forget. He knows I struggle to see good in the world, and especially the good in myself. But here it is. A testament and gesture of his love.”

The picture has been viewed more than 500,000 times on Imgur in just three days.

Tim later took to Facebook to express his gratitude to everyone who had supported him and his wife in the past few days.

He posted: “I scribbled some compliments on a mirror never expecting anyone to see them, not even Molly Murphy. Now it's gone viral? WTF internet, you cray. I appreciate the kind words though.”

If you or someone you know is suffering from depression, they should know there is always someone to talk to. Samaritans do some amazing work and offer a confidential and completely anonymous service, should you need to call them.

Depression can be beaten.
