Not sure if I’ve written about this topic before in this forum. If not, it’s high time. If I have, it’s worth revisiting.
Being brave is a core value and characteristic of living a happy and fulfilling life.
If we don’t learn to have courage and be brave, we will struggle with new things, with hard things, throughout our lives.
If we don’t learn to be brave we will not feel good about ourselves. We will be sad more often.
If we don’t learn to be brave our relationships will suffer.
And for kids especially, it’s important to understand…
Courage isn’t about something magical that happens inside us to make us ‘not scared’. It’s about something magical that happens inside us to make us push through fear, self-doubt, anxiety, and do the things that feel hard or risky or frightening.
It means being brave when it’s necessary. It is necessary. Be brave.
