I’d written half a post about how I hadn’t felt a sense of relief in a while due to my high anxiety levels. But, I’ve already written a post today about my anxiety so I feel as though you probably want to read something a little more upbeat.
So, I’ll tell you about the relief I felt when I saw my now husband at the end of the aisle just over 5 weeks ago.
I’d been told he was ready, he was on his way and he was fine. I’d been told this 100 times.
I’d had friends telling me we were perfect for each other and the wedding would be beautiful.
I’d had him tell me himself that he would be there.
I even saw him when I was driving into the register office!
But, there was still a small part of me that thought he wouldn’t be there. That he’d changed his mind at the last minute and ran. That he didn’t want to be my husband after all.
Then I saw him. I saw my best friend standing at the other end of the aisle waiting for me to walk down and take his hand and become his wife.
5 weeks later, I’m happier than every – obviously still in the happiness of newlywed bliss – and looking forward to feeling the relief I do every time I see him. He fixes the hard days, and tries his best to get rid of my anxieties.
To my best friend, and my best source of relief. I thank you.
