Courage August 11, 2012

Every now and then people would say to me that they think I am brave, courageous, or some other words to that effect. For some reason, the word would never sit well with me, but I couldn’t quite explain why.

I just figured it out.

Most of the time when I’m compelled to act, it’s because I’ve figured out something else that frightens me more than inaction. That’s all it is.

That’s why the word feels incongruent, because I never feel courageous, quite the opposite. Courage is not being fearless, it’s to keep going in the face of fear.
