I’m scared my mental illness makes me unlovable. It’s a statement I hate writing and a sentence I hate thinking about. But it’s how I feel. I feel like as my depression and anxiety become more chronic issues, my thoughts about falling in love and the chances of it happening to me start to slim. While this is a small part of me, I can’t help but feel as though there is a giant neon sign following me.
