Finding the courage to be yourself can be and is one of the most rewarding things you can get out of life. Learning to accept yourself will instantly make life easier. Think of how easy it would be to walk around and never second guess what you do because of societal pressures. It would be blissful and you’d always be happy with your choices. See one of the things that hold us back in life is peer pressure. The opinions of others and how they view us can greatly influence our decision-making skills. Which means we might want to do something but decide not to because of fear that it isn’t socially accepted. That’s where courage comes in. We have to have the courage to do what makes us happy. It’s not the easiest thing in the world to do because let’s face it no one wants to be an outcast. But it’s something that has to be done for you. Just think about all the great people in the world that had the courage to be different. The people who went on to change the world because they believed in their dream and had the courage to stand behind it. We have to get that courage too. We have to learn to embrace our passions and let them be the driving forces in our lives. It’s not as hard as you think to be courageous. It just takes that first step of faith in the right direction and before you know it you’ll have enough courage to share.
