“Never Giving Up” By: Katherine Meter Professor Betty Nazarian ENGL092 My children, parents and friends are a really important part of my life. They have given me the confident and motivation to never give up on my goals. They all have been there for me in the good times and the bad. The last couple of years in my life have been rough ones. It first started when my father became ill and I had to take care of him. The next thing was a year later when I lost my job. My father had fallen ill and ended up in the hospital. He apparently had a failing liver which he kept getting sick. I started to make sure that all of his medical needs were being taken care of. He was in the hospital and rehabs for months. I had told my sister that he was ill. Then one day the doctor had told me that he was not going to make it. That was very hard to hear. I was now put in a situation to where I had to tell my siblings and other family that he was not going to make it. It was alot to handle and while trying to take care of my children. I was always hoping that I was making the right decissons. The next devastating event in my life was just a year after losing my father. I lost my job. My job was one of the most important things to me. I loved the job I was doing. Losing my job really hit me hard. My job was the second best thing in my life. Me being a single mom, it was my only means of supporting my family who meant everything to me. I have worked at the same job for twenty-four years and now it was gone. I had felt like a failure and I failed my family. It really hurt me. But after a few confident boosters and talks with my family and friends, I decided to take some classes to improve on what I did. I am confident that I am going to do better on my next adventure which in turn will help me to take care of my family.
