My Courage Key came to me just at the right time in my life when I needed it most. I was at the end of a long term relationship with someone that was drug-fuelled and abusive, treating me so terribly that I was left feeling like a shell of my own self. It took me years of torment to realize that what he was doing to me wasn't true love. As valuable lessons are learned from every walk of life, wearing my Giving Key gave me the courage to accept that people cannot be fixed, no matter how much love, dedication and commitment you give. I learned that letting go is not a sign of weakness and that I had enough courage to battle through and keep strong. For two years I have worn my Key. In those two years I cut ties with the negative relationship, fulfilled my dreams of moving to London from Australia, travelled to places I had never seen before, landed my dream job, lived through new experiences good and bad, and I am now living a life that I always envisioned for myself but never had the courage to go for. I have now met a life partner that has shown me what true love really is, and he is beyond incredible. Yes, it might be just a key, but the imprinted word of courage set the foundation for me to be courageous leading me to positively changing my life. Now it's time for me to pass the key on to someone who is in need of a bit of courage, as her story is similar to mine. I pass the key on with hope that it gives her the courage that she needs.
