When I first heard of The Giving Keys, I thought it was a really cool idea and I wanted to be a part of it. I thought about how I know so many people in need of STRENGTH, including me. I have been through a lot of ups and downs with depression, anxiety, abusive boyfriends, harassment, loneliness and addiction. I started turning my life around when I went into treatment. Since then I have gotten a lot of strength to stand up for myself and to love myself. It was time for me to pass on my strength key as I felt I have gotten from it all that I could. I am stronger than ever. I was contacted by a friend who told me her 13 year old daughter was talking suicide. I know dealing with depression is not easy and that it would be a struggle. Her daughter is getting inpatient help but I know the stress that it brings to you and your loved ones life. You need a lot of strength to deal with this kind of thing. Ive been looking for someone to pass this key on to and I felt that she was the perfect person for this strength key!
