I Am Brave

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 257 People

    I am extremely brave,

    and it's my favorite thing about myself! Bravery isn't the lack of fear, of course, but knowing what scares you and doing it anyway.

    I Am Often Scared Though

    Since I was little, I was taught to be scared, from my father to being raped, passing by school and other little things of life that could rot you, and make you become a fearful person, and a dishonest one. But I fight, and I'm courageous I think. I face my fears very often...

    Tomorrow I'm going to tell me story.

    Tell it all from my obsession with what's not really there, to my tragic story of being bullied to thoughts of suicide, to the simple fact I'm gay an an anti gay world.

    I Hold Bravery

    All my live, I've been through hell, like many others. I've had to cope with my disability, go through extreme bullying, lots of family problems and I've lost so much faith in myself and wanted to kill myself so many times. But, you know what? I've overcome everything, there have...

    The day before high school,

    I was scared and timid as always. I never socialized for a prolonged sequence, enhancing my maladaptive behavior around others. The day came, and I got paralysed. I went hiding and decided to blend in. The evangelion of the bell rang, and I went to class stricken. Then something...

    I don't let fear control me

    or my life. It's a limitation that I don't accept.

    Choosing Chance Over A Sedentary Life

    My curiosity led me here. I own but the clothes on my back, a life that not many people here come to know. I peer through the edge of the parallel trees and thorny thicket. My bare feet took me this far to witness the sin my people were talking about. Intricate, lavish...

    I always imagine myself playing the hero,

    taking the bullet to save my friends. Except I actually would. Always. I care about my friends enough to do that.

    Obstacles.

    I will prevail... no matter what. My past life is sad, but it made me who I am today, and I would not change a single thing.

    Loyal

    Being brave has nothing to do with fear. Fear is too strong of an emotion. Being brave is deciding to conquer that fear inside and do what you -must- . I find myself breaking up fights between my big guy friends, kindly confronting people who are trying to ruin my friend's...

    I'am Brave And Strong

    I used to be a shy little girl. Mouth closely shut and never speaking or voicing out her thoughts. Never having to stand up for herself and take control. Always the follower not the leader. The listener, not the speaker. But as I grow up, things in my life started to turn black...

    I think saying "I love you" is pretty brave, because you're risking the other person not saying it back.
