I'd rather be called brave than beautiful
Hey everyone, welcome back to Shades of Tay - blog style!
You may ask why wouldn't you want to be called beautiful, well it’s not necessarily true that I don’t want to be called beautiful. I am a woman, I’m human - of course I want to be called beautiful. However there are other descriptive words that I appreciate more, everyone is beautiful whether on the outside or inside - bravery is something that is not nearly as common as the compliments we hear day to day. Not that long ago someone called me brave and I couldn’t believe the power behind such a small word, as I’ve grown and experienced more struggle I’ve come to realize that bravery isn’t just one explanation.
courageous behavior or character.
synonyms:courage, valor, intrepidity, nerve, daring, fearlessness, audacity, boldness, dauntlessness, stoutheartedness, heroism;
To me bravery isn’t just being courageous, it is setting goals and never giving up, it is taking the bad with the good and moving forward, it is sharing your opinion and values, it is putting yourself first and becoming aware of your own needs, it is ultimately being your true self. To me that is what bravery means, how could I not want people to view me as brave?
Be bright, be bold, be brave.
