How Link Before You Sink Got started
If you’re human, chances are you’ve been through a dark time in life and felt like isolating yourself from the outside world. Life is full of peaks and valleys and after hitting rock bottom myself, I vowed to find a way to help individuals through tough times to know they’re not alone.
In 2014 my life completely shifted. After losing my father to a long battle with cancer, losing a close family friend, and breaking off an engagement within three weeks, I quit my job and relocated back to Columbus, Ohio from Florida to restart my life.
I was heartbroken, jobless, and buried in college debt; but was desperate to follow through on the promise I left my dad with – that he could pass knowing I would be “okay”. It took awhile to get back on my feet and find happiness within myself again, but I did. I found my strength in “linking” with others. I “linked” up with those who have experienced loss; I “linked” up with friends and family who gave me their support; and I “linked” up with my faith. I quickly realized that one of the most basic human needs is connection.
While riding my bike one day my chain broke. I looked down and had an epiphany: the symbolism of “links” and connection while being broken hit me. I suddenly realized I could make jewelry charms out of the broken bike chain.
And so, Link Before You Sink, “LBYS” was born! Our mission is to help us find strength by linking with others. Everything broken has the chance to be beautiful again.
Whether your struggle is depression, loss, cancer, career, a miscarriage, a bad day – we’re here to *link* with you!
Like a broken bike chain, there’s something perfect about our imperfections. Let’s not sweep them under the rug hiding behind carefully edited social media posts! Let’s pull that stuff out and talk about it! When you’re going through a tough time, it’s vital that we “link” up with people.
Never underestimate the power of connection. No matter what struggle you’re going through, you’re not alone.
