People maintain their hope by doing things that may comfort them. Perhaps going to another person, talking to them and having a good time. Maybe just simply believing that whatever will hope will happen, will happen. You could support that with evidence and reason onto why that could happen, but of course you don’t want to get your hopes up too high in case something happened. Whenever I hope something will happen, I think about it a little but I mostly try not to focus on it too much in case. Depending on the situation, I’ll persuade my parents to let me do it. Such as if I was hoping to go somewhere or to do something with a friend.
