I Am Brave

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 250 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 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'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...

    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 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...

    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.

    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...

    Life

     i believe that life is  not just about having  fun and telling people that you are brave , there is always a time in your life that you can don't hold it any more that is to much for you. be who you are and tell other people about it let it out

    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...
