There are a lot of people who are suffering, and there are very few people who are willing to encourage them even though they know everything about their situation. However, they still do nothing to give them support and show their kindness to them. Therefore, everyone needs inspiration sometimes in their lives. However, most of the time there are a lot of people who are in need of help from others around them, but do not get support for various reasons. In the memoir Hope’s Boy, Andrew Bridge explains he is a child who works through a foster care system who obviously needs a lot of help by those; however, he is ignored by so many people around him.

There are many people who want to help others, but the things that prevent them for not helping others is the less confidence in themselves and the anxiety of getting in trouble. However, we need to provide help to others because helping other people makes us feel better about ourselves emotionally and physically. Therefore, it also helps in emerging the society and constructing it develops in a massive way.
