Courageous I am not!

Someone recently commented to me that they admired my courage in a certain decision. I have to admit I never thought of myself as courageous in any degree. Most of my decisions are based on my fears rather than my courage.

I am more afraid of never trying more than I am of failing at something new.

I am more afraid of disappointing God, family, friends and myself than I am about pleasing a crowd.

I am more afraid of what my lack of action, words or stand would say than being misunderstood by my silence.

I am more afraid of not being who I am than I am to reveal who I am not.

I am more afraid of someone hurting someone I love than I am to challenge those who attempt to hurt them.

Courageous I am not! I have just learned that digesting your fears can give you the energy to move through them.
