I have an unfortunate history of mental illness and suicide attempts. This bracelet was perfect for me, because every phrase written on one side was something I either told other people when they were feeling the same or something that I found comforting myself. I also have a love for writing, and I try to leave encouraging notes for people. On March 4th, 2018, I lost my fiancé to a massive stroke. He was 34. I’ve needed the messages on this bracelet every day since. I had also bought is the Valentine’s Day pack from this year, but it was a bit too small for him. During the wake, we were encouraged to bring items to put in his casket. I put one of the Valentine’s bracelets in with him, as a sort of link to him, along with a handwritten love letter and some other small things. These bracelets are beautiful and often fun, but they can also be extremely personal and mean the world to someone. I love you more than you’ll ever know, Gerard. To the moon and back, and beyond.
