What is being brave?

One of my friends looked at me
And told me, “When are you going to know that
You are brave? You are facing the demons that
Are deep inside of you. You have shared your
Truth with the world. You have advocated for
Others. That is being brave. Now the best thing, you
Can do is to look in the mirror and
say I love you. Also, to let go of the pain
you are feeling, start to love yourself, let
the tears come out and love yourself. You need to realize
how brave you are. You are valuable to the people
you know. When are you going to start to believe it yourself?
Heal your heart one day at a time, one tear
at a time, and one moment at a time.
It’s okay to be real with yourself and honest about
What you are really feeling deep inside. Let yourself
Feel it.”
Being brave is facing the demons and healing yourself.
Being brave is allowing yourself to truly love yourself.
Being brave is knowing that your worth comes from within yourself.
