It takes a lot of courage to stand up for what you believe in and even more courage to stand up and help other people. Courage is the ability to face danger, difficulty, uncertainty, or pain without being overcome by fear. Bravery and courage is about setting aside your fear and taking action for the good of yourself or someone else. In addition, when we stand up for ourselves, other people may be upset with the fact that you have the guts to be honest. Consequently they will criticize you and question you. It really doesn’t matter; we have no choice but to take the controversy, in order to have true self worth and reach our potential in life. If this criticism doesn’t stop it is just a sign that these people don’t have your best interests at heart.

The strength and courage comes from having the guts and integrity to be honest, in order to stand up for what you believe in.The real relevance to this type of courage is the fact that, I can only realize my own importance when I recognize that what I do for my own good will, in a lot of cases be for the good of everyone.

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. ― Nelson Mandela
