Worthy: good and deserving respect, praise, or attention.
As someone who has struggled with depression and anxiety their entire life, feeling good or like I deserved praise or recognition, is rare. That’s not to say I walk around every day feeling bad about myself. Because I don’t.
I have good days. It’s just that I often have bad days more.
My Giving Key acts as a reminder that I am good. That I do deserve respect and praise. That I am someone to be proud of.
So when I have a bad day, I grab hold of my key. I read it and say to myself: you are worthy… and suddenly the day just isn’t so bad anymore.
And for everyone wondering, it was my Mama that gifted me the Key. Because like the best mothers, she never gives up on me. Even when I give up on myself.
