I Was On A Downward Spiral

I've been battling depression for a long time. I was very suicidal and took up self harm. Soon after, I discovered the Giving Keys. I still struggled immensely, but I would look down at the scars on my wrist and I couldn't help but to see my key hanging off my neck, the message being "Loved." I was on a downward spiral, but I just knew when I saw that key that it wasn't the end of the road for me.
I am now 7 months clean from self harm, and the depression is losing more and more each day.
I recently discovered that one of my close friends, as a teenager, has become pregnant. She has been in a dark place, feeling alone and hopeless. I took this opportunity to share my love, God's love, and the love of humanity to my friend. I passed my key on, adding the message that this was just the beginning. That's what I love so much about your keys, not only may they symbolize the end to a past self, but also the beginning to a new self. They are little messages of potentiality, and I want to thank you for showing us that there is so much light in this world, even when we feel deemed to darkness.
