Finding the Lock to My Key

I am a 15 year old girl, and I have been struggling with depression for a while now. Last night, my mom and I attended the One Republic concert. 

My mom and I saw the necklace (I wanted it, but I didn't have enough money) and she bought it for herself, but no longer than a minute later she gave it to me. 

My mom doesn't know what is going on or about my struggle with depression, so she just thought it was a necklace that I wanted and would wear. Internally I have put meaning behind it, to me I think of it like this:
I have a key with no lock that I know of. The key is the answer. The lock represents the questions I might encounter. I have all the answers, but I might not have all the questions of problems that life will throw at me yet. 

I am hoping that this will help me stay strong, and eventually get better... Maybe one day this key will show me the answer to being happy again.

    I have a daughter who has severe anxiety and panic issues…..she is now almost 23 but this has been going on since she got sick in 4th grade….I want to encourage you to talk to your Mom about the way you are feeling…..I would hate to know that my girl was suffering and didn’t feel she could talk to me about it….you need the support…and ITS OK!!!!!! I love how you think about your giving key……I will keep you in my prayers….you are NEVER alone!!! Xo
