Growing up I struggled with depression. I was always told growing up that I wouldn't amount to anything by not only classmates, and coworkers, but my own parents as well. My depression and anxiety eventually lead me to find an escape in alcohol, and was on the verge of being an alcoholic. I was a guy in his mid 20's who didn't have a dime to his name, college dropout, and working a dead end job just to support my alcohol habit. 4 years ago, I met this girl who I fell in love with, who saw the potential in me that I never could. With her help and her love, I put the bottle down, got myself a good paying job, went back to school, and finally got my life on track the way it should be. Now I'm about to graduate, have a stable job, and am about to be engaged! I wear my Prevail Zox everyday as a daily reminder that even when times get hard, I will continue to prevail over the hardships as I have done in the past.
