    Or Reckless

    I'm not really sure if I'm courageous.  A lot of experiences I'll avoid.  Some of them because a lack of courage.  I don't have the courage to start something that will lead me to nowhere, yet sometimes the senselesness attracts me.  I'm not afraid where...

    Courage

    I am courageous. I have fight in me,

    more than I realized over the years. I am not afraid of rejection, platonic or romantic, because everything results in either yes or no. Not everything in existence gets a yes. I am somewhat afraid of insects if I see them but I can catch them or kill them. My brother and...

    One of the most courageous decision you can

    make is to finally let go of what is hurting your heart and soul. If something/someone hurts you more then helps you, let it/them go by consciously making a choice to disassociate yourself from the negativity they bring.

    I personally don't believe anyone is ugly

    and I love being there for people. I wish sometimes people would give that in return, but I'm okay being like a shepherd for everyone else. Keep loss behind eyes, stand strong and keep my head out. I don't want to save the world, I want to leave it better than the one I found.
