    alright, I've been struggling of my situation

    where you're trying to simply ask one question:: "am I that big bother and why did you want to block me, why it takes too long to unblock me" I try to pretend that there is still one question, but so yeah... it feels the worst to pick a call when writing feels best for me, but I...

    All Types of Bravery!

    I have many hero's, representing different types of bravery. I admire the bravery of all the members of Britain's armed forces & their allies. The police officers who police Britain's streets mostly unarmed. Other types of bravery include those people who have...

    I think saying "I love you" is pretty brave,

    because you're risking the other person not saying it back.

    Lack Of Experience Or Bravery

    Sometimes you do stuff and don't think about it that other people consider brave. I rode my first roller coaster feeling I would not survive...a guy in traffic repeatedly honked at me to try to force me to turn on red...I got ticked off I went over to him real nice excuse me sir...

    Fearless

    To me, fearless is not the absence of fear. It's not being completely unafraid. To me, fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. Fearless is falling madly in love again, even though you've been hurt before. Fearless is walking into your freshmen year of...

    I Do, I Do, I Do!

    Maybe I am bias, as I have an warrior-spirit and daily life is a test to my own bravery. Dealing with social anxiety, every time I step outside my door, it's a great test of willpower and pushing past my fears. BUT, I have deep and unwavering respect for those who are brave! Even...

    Being brave and knowing

    I think people who 'come out' of their

    sexuality to their parents are brave, because you may not know if you'll get rejected.. Like I haven't dared to come out to my parents, but I've been dropping small hints, to observe their reaction and so far, it hasn't been a positive result..

    I Really Do

    I live my life in fear of almost anything. When I see people take these risks, I give them props. Now I try to take more risks but it hasn't worked so well for me. Probably because I didn't think so thoroughly.

    It's a Virtue

    In order to exhibit bravery, one must give of their 'self'. To risk something for someone else is a brave, even noble, act of love. To be brave we must loose our fear - fear for ourselves, fear of pain, fear of death. These are selfish fears and stand in the way of bravery, which...
