I bought a giving key with the word ‘adequate’ on it. I have had (and still am having) a struggle with feeling that I am not and ever will be good enough. This school year my best friend was in a terrible relationship where her boyfriend made her feel unimportant, inadequate, and an overall waste of his time. I presented her with a beaded bracelet with the word ‘loved’ on it and the ‘adequate’ key. It now serves her as a remembrance that no matter how her ex (or anyone else for that matter) makes her feel about herself, she has always been good enough.
