Courage

Don’t allow your comfort to be defined by the enduring strength in others; like a soldier seeing fear in his sergeants final moments, and losing all courage.– or else concluding that the sergeant wasn’t actually one of those stolidly brave persons. Like somebody who learns what they are and then becomes prejudiced against their own kind. Find your enduring strength somewhere else, and in a way that allows for weakness and fear and doubt – because those things are human, and good, and wholesale denial of their value or potential value can’t be determined by ignorance. When you understand them, you’ll find your strength, because you’ll understand that you don’t have to be ‘strong’ all the time. There’s no act more courageous than those done in blinding terror.
