My church had a conference for our youth and the first day they had all these booths set up for different organizations like Rescue her or Beauty Restored and The Giving Keys were one of them. I fell in love with the key that had the words FIGHT engraved on it because ever since I was little I fought with having social anxiety and depression and my life has been one big battle, I felt like it fit perfectly.
During the conference I met a girl named Alex, she had struggled with depression as well as anxiety. She came from a place that held a lot of abuse and she told me that everyday was a fight to stay alive. I felt a tug on my heart to give her that key and only 24 hours of having it, I gave it away to her. She cried when I gave it to her and told me it would remind her to keep going in life.
She wears it everyday.
