It's hard to be brave. To be honest, I'm not even sure what bravery even is sometimes.. Is being brave the opposite of being afraid? Is it not showing fear? Not being controlled by fear? Is it using the fear? Perhaps bravery isn't even connected to fear in the way I've always thought it was.
I am certain though that being brave does not mean getting rid of fear. Perhaps being brave means trusting myself. Perhaps being brave means trusting myself enough to stand up again, to walk on, walk on, walk on. If that's the case, then being brave is the only way to get anywhere.
Be brave, whoever you are. Be brave.
