Bravery is often mistaken for not fearing anything. On the contrary, being brave requires one to have a lot of fears, and to overcome them.

Think gladiators fighting with beasts with just a sword. Or soldiers fighting a battle not knowing whether they will come home tomorrow.

On a day to day scale, when you overcome your stage-fright to do a presentation in front of a crowd. That’s bravery.

And when you decide to own up to your mistakes even when you know that you are going to be branded a liar for the rest of your life. That’s bravery.

Or when you stood up against bullying, even though you risk a broken nose. That’s bravery.

It is when we are put in threatening situations, that’s where our true bravery is revealed.
