Courage or fear?


Dear Readers,

We sometimes have to make a lot of tough decisions in life where we have to choose people or sides. We always see what is best for that situation. In the process of making those decisions, we do have fear of losing things. We have a fear of losing our families or friends. We fear of losing our image in society. We fear for the unknown future and how it will change with our wrong or right decisions. Fear is not of the unknown but the loss of the known. Sometimes the fear of loss is much greater than the desire to gain.

Why do we have so many fears for our future when we don’t have any control of changing it? Why have we stopped believing that,” Everything that we ever wanted is on the other side of fear”? The fear of loss is an engine of horrors, but also a source of greater forms of heroism. Without fear, there cannot be courage. Courage is not the absence of fear, but it is a reminder that something else is more important than fear. I believe that we have to decide mentally that we are going to have more courage than fear in every situation we encounter.

It is good to have fear but it is bad when it is not letting you develop the courage to take the leap of faith. We are strong enough to face all our problems, even if it does not feel like it right now. With courage, we will dare to take a risk, have the strength to be compassionate and a wisdom to be humble and kind to all. If you don’t fear you can never cherish the importance of it in your life. All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them. Courage is not having the strength to go on, it is going on when you don’t have strength. Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide in favor of, there is always someone to tell you that you’re wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs on a battlefield. Courage is a love affair with the unknown. Make this affair strong as it can lead you miles in just one step.

“What good are the wings without a courage to fly”. Be brave, be strong in any situation that you are into in your life. Life gives up on you when u give up on yourself. It is better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life. You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. The strength of happiness is freedom from pain and the secret of freedom is courage.

I choose courage !!! Do you?
