I Am Worth It

What Zox means to me? The last couple of years I have been going through a rough time. Both my parents have passed way. My mother died of cancer and my father had dementia. My 3 half-brothers had “youth-Alzheimers”. This type of alzheimers is genetic. Two of them passed within 5 weeks of each-other. That was very hard. I fell into a depression and I sought help. Last year I was also diagnosed with borderline and I have therapy weekly. The borderline has to do with my unhappy childhood, I was neglected emotionally and my parents got divorced and I didn’t see my father for 9 years. The last couple of months I discovered I haven’t been myself. I always did what was expected of me…as a child but even as an adult. That was very shocking. My world collapsed. Like my foundation just collapsed under me. I felt so lost. With therapy I am starting to discover who I am. About 2 months ago I saw a Zox ad on Facebook and I clicked on the link and the first strap I saw was “This Is Me”. The meaning of it struck me, especially the sentence “…That choice to pursue a chance may be the best move for you to build yourself”. I immediately bought this strap and wear it every day. It reminds me to find myself and be me…. In the meantime I bought two more straps. “You Are Enough” which reminds me that I am ok, that I am worth it to be in this world. And “Stay Strong” that helps to keep going and that one day I’ll get there. I have a long way to go and with therapy and help of friends and with the beautiful and meaningful straps of Zox I’ll be ok… So thank you Zox, thank you to the artists for the beautiful art you make.
