Hope is a feeling that a person can have for a particular outcome. It can
be something very minor such as hoping it doesn’t rain or that tickets to
the movie they want to see isn’t sold out. Other forms of hope are more
serious in nature. For example you may be hoping that your dog makes it
out of surgery without any complications so they can make a full
recovery.
<p>
The hope that we have is something based on our personal believes. It is
often tied into our own faith and religion as well. For example many
people have family member’s right now in Iraq fighting the war. They hope
and they pray each day for that person to return safely. They hold on to
their faith as it is a way to get though difficult situations.
<p>
The benefit of having hope and a positive outlook for a situation is very
important. Many people will tell you they just had a feeling that
everything was going to work out alright. There has been plenty of
research to indicate individuals who have hope recover from cancer and
other types of illnesses faster and more often than those that don’t.
<p>
Some people keep their feelings of hope to themselves and they do engage
in prayer. Some religions openly tell their congregation to engage in
hope for themselves, those they know, and the world as a whole. Others
give very emotional and motivational appeals about how to reach for hope
and what it can offer you.
<p>
There are some great books out there that offer great information on how
you can become more hopeful. Sometimes life throws us for a loop and we
aren’t sure what to make of it. We can change our outlook though by
finding things to hope for and to motivate us to keep striving for better
things ahead.
<p>
Hope can provide a person with the strength they need to handle any
situation regardless of what is taking place. Many professionals feel
that hope is nothing more than a coping mechanism. Yet for many
individuals it is a feeling that is much stronger and much deeper than
that. What is agreed upon though is the hope a person has and the depth
of it varies by individual.
