1.) My number one reason for living is my faith. It calls me to help others and put them first. I am called as a Christian, to "be kind, loving, & encouraging and to look for lonely people." I am called to be different and make a difference in people's life. I can't do that if I'm dead. It not only gives me a purpose for my life, but also helps me through the struggle that life brings. I have hope and people that I can rely on from them sharing the same faith. (ethos)
2.) My number two reason for living are my two best friends. They are more than best friends though, they are sisters. We have each others backs and are there for each other no matter what. Yes, we get mad at each other and yes, things can get complicated and sticky but we will do anything for each other. We hold each other up in our valleys and dance around campfires being crazy on our mountain tops. We except each other for who each one of us is. (pathos)
3.) My number three reason for living is for my brothers and mom. Yes, all of us fight. Yes, we can't stand each other at times, but underneath all of that, we love each other and would do anything for each other. They are the ones who cheer me up when I am having a crappy day. They can tell when I need to laugh and will either start a huge war of all of us hitting each other with wrapping paper tubes or make the stupidest faces to make me laugh. I will always need my brothers. They always have my back.
My mom also has my back. She is always there for me, giving me advice and helping me with the little things. She is my number one go to person for advice or just to tell someone something. (pathos)
4.) My number four reason for living is for my youth group and church family. They are always there for me and are my people. I don't have many friends but they are accepting, know me for who I truly am, and are some of the best huggers I know. They give me examples of who I should be as a Christian and child of God. I can always count on them. (pathos)
5.) My last reason for living is myself. I know this may sound confusing but let me explain. I want to make a difference in peoples' lives. I want to help as many people as I can. I can't do that if I don't want to live. I have to hold on and God has made me a strong person. I just want to make a difference and live the life God intended. I see hope in the future and I don't want to miss out on that hope. I was put here for a purpose and I am not going to let myself take that purpose away. I am standing in my own way so to speak. I'm not going to let myself be swayed. (Logos)
