‘Faith, Gratitude, and Unconditional Love’
By Julia Gu

"When I feel despair and hopeless, I look deep inside myself. I realize the vulnerable person inside of me and begin to have doubts if I can start all over again. But even if it is tiny, if I find myself trying to find hope, the feeling of fear changes to a fluttering heart and excitement. That is where I gain my confidence and confidence becomes faith. The faith I have in myself makes who I am today. When you are hopeless, you feel shabby for showing your ugly and vulnerable side. But that is the only moment you can honestly see the true appearance of yourself, and it is the only chance and time you can create the true and genuine you. Thus, do not be afraid of despair. Take it as an opportunity for growth and becoming a better person. Fear is something that stimulates you, but only a small part of you. "
