Sometimes we think we can stand up and face the world with no fear. We never think of the struggles that we go through and how we come out the other side. Do we always come out the other side? Sometimes, it is hard to realize that we lack courage.

Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.

Maya Angelou

I’ve always thought of myself as someone who is strong and independent. I always do whatever I need to do and think that I can do it alone. Recently, I’ve been looking at myself and realizing there are many things that I’ve been avoiding. I used to think I was courageous and strong.

It turns out, I’m not as courageous as I thought. I can be complacent and let things happen around me. I let others do for me and I let them happen because I don’t always stand up for myself. So, I’m here to tell you that we all fall victim to this.

I’ve come to a time when I have to say no more. I have to stop letting bad things happen to me. I am taking steps to get out from under the thumbs that I’ve been stuck under. I’m finding that courage inside of me and letting it shine.

Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself and if you can’t reach out to those who can help you.

I’m doing it, you can too.
