LoyalBeing 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 reputations, and asking questions many people are afraid to.
So to date now that I am an adult I'm glad to say my actions have largely been brave. I have been as brave (and kind) as I possibly could to help others around me.
