To be brave. What does it take? I think most of us are brave every day. We just don’t bring it up. There is, after all, not much humility in bragging about a character asset. There is a hashtag going around – #metoo – in order to spread awareness about sexual harassment.
Not many people want to talk about being a victim, but we kind of have to talk about it. Awareness is a biggie in helping others and it is oh so brave to share a painful shame-filled story. Of course, it hurts… it hurts when I share my pain, but I know deep in my soul it helps almost as much.
Bravery isn’t planned. It just happens. The bravest this to be is unapologetically yourself. Every f**king day. Just be you. It is a wonderful thing. Be brave and say NO. Be brave and say YES. Be brave and just effing be YOU.
‘And it harm none, do what ye will’
Everyone should live by that rede. The world would be amazing if we would. It is braver to do the right thing that it is to be part of the crowd.
You told me I was brave
As you looked the other way
I had no way out
But had so much to say
I was just a child
And you were quite a man
You held my whole world
In the palm of your beastly hand
Now I am much wiser
As I look around the world
I am no longer a victim
No longer that little girl
