Today, I will be answering the daily prompt: “How are you brave?” For anyone interested in the bloganuary prompts, you can find them here.
How are you brave?
This is a difficult question to answer. There isn’t a real way to measure braveness. Some things that you do every day may be brave but to you it is a normal thing. To answer this question, it is important to know what brave is defined as and no, I won’t be using a technical definition.
To be brave means to do something that causes you fear. An example of this would be getting up on a stage to perform even though you have stage freight. Now, I can ask myself am I brave? I think I would catagorize myself as brave as there are things about myself that I am not most confident about but I still do it.
Most people have some trait that they would love to change about themselves but can’t. I’ve come to terms with it and just brush off any jokes about it. People can only hurt you if you give them the power to.
The second prompt was much harder to answer then the first. For this one, I had to really think and open up. That is one of the reasons I enjoy these prompts so much!
