Hope has a lot of meanings to different people. What hope means to me is not giving up in the bad times; It’s holding on to the good. Where we get hope will vary from person to person, story to story. I get my hope by thinking of my future because I want to become a doctor and if i want that i need to be focused. I can live in the now, but also plan and prepare for my future. My hope can be restored by people showing me that they actually truly care and me knowing what I got to do for myself. There will always be challenges, but what threatens my hope is people not being there for me and my plans for the future will may not work out.
In middle school towards the end of 8th grade I closed out everyone that I care for. I did it because I was scared for my future, I was going to high school with no friends. That means I was leaving my friends behind and starting new by myself. I lost hope that I was going to be okay, but what made me regain hope was me thinking about my future. There is just some things I need to do by myself to get stronger and do it for my future that I want. My friends and family helped me realize there is nothing to be scared of and just to focus on what I want in life.
