This Story Of A Boyfriend Helping His Depressed Partner Is Relationship Goals

An Imgur user named roasted Iguana reached out with her story of chronic depression on the photo-sharing platform, and one guy who helped her break through to the other side of her depressive episode.

According to her post, she has ups and downs with her mental health, but on a particular day when she didn’t want to even get out of bed her boyfriend swooped in to the rescue—and piled all of this crap on top of her:

There are many tactics for addressing chronic depression, and if you’re having similar issues, please reach out for professional help. But friends, lover and family can all find ways to be supportive.

What worked for RoastedIguana (great user name, BTW), might be a thing that would deeply upset another person struggling through the moment, but presumably her boyfriend knows her pretty well. What he did would annoy the crap out of me on my best day, but it worked for her.

It was kind of a pile on—no matter how RoastedIguana tried to retreat from life, her boyfriend kept piling more life on top. You don’t want tea? You’re gonna get tea.

Oh, and here’s a pic of the cat, for the record:

But in the end, RoastedIguana was able to write about her experience, because it worked:

People are touched by this story:

Depression is something that needs to be fought everyday, and supporting someone in the way they need is one of the greatest gifts you can offer them. Even if it’s just putting the cat on their head.

19 People Explain Why They Prefer Having A Friend With Benefits Over A Relationship

There are varying degrees to any relationship we all hold nowadays. Sometimes, we split the type of relationship we keep with certain folks and get the full experience of interacting with one pleasant person by keeping them in rotation. I do this with different groups of friends, and do everything in my power to make sure that none of them ever meet to keep everything in balance.

Recent years has seen a movement that has existed for ages be named and become more popular. FWBs, or friends with benefits, are exactly what they sound like. They’re people that are cool to hang with and simultaneously get physically intimate with, sans post copulating issues.

Some people are too busy to keep a relationship healthy, or are no longer interested in having one at all after one too many negative experiences, but still have certain primal needs that still need to be addressed.
