Courage

Good evening lovers, how’s your week going? I’m very stressed guyssss. Mass communication department will not be the end of me😥. Imagine me, i mean this girl right here, having four classes in just a day. My God is my strength.

Currently listening to Try me by Tems.

someone should help me tell Tems that I love her 😥😭

I’m so sorry for missing yesterday’s topic. It’s a very sensitive topic I wouldn’t like to go near. I don’t want feminists to start their argument. I don’t like stress please. It’s day 11 of the writing challenge and I’m pretty much excited as I have been from onset. Today’s topic is “Courage“.

Courage is the ability to act on one’s beliefs despite danger or disapproval. Courage is having strength in the face of pain of grief. Courage is daring, audacity, boldness, grit, true grit, heroism, gallantry.

Courage is a necessity to overcome fears and achieve a desired goal. Fear is something that exists in all of us. There is no hero or any particular courageous figure that is without fear. Fear only makes the problem bigger whereas facing up to the problem makes it shrink. Being fearless is not required to be courageous, one simply has to look past or overcome their fears to possess this great quality. No one else can do it for you. Sometimes it’s true that things in our heads make us fear and fearing the fear makes it worse. But in my personal experience things are not always that straightforward. When overcoming fears and going against the norm, there are always risks involved. There are different types of risks that come about. Someone could risk life or limb, while others risk their reputation. Either risk is serious enough that a person must have courage to endure that particular risk. Courage can occur anytime, anywhere, and often in our everyday lives.

Courage is always required to move forward in life. I often think about courage and how hard it can be just to do ordinary things for those of us who suffer from PTSD, ADHD, anxieties, depression and other traumas. But then I think, hang on a minute! Maybe that’s the problem. Thinking about things being difficult makes them look bigger.

There are always difficulties and problems to be overcome so there’s no point thinking that if I can just get round that particular corner I’ll be fine, which I admit I often find myself thinking, because as soon as I’m fine something else pops up which says ‘not yet, you’re not’. Hoping for a problem free life is not realistic. What I need is resilience and the ability to stay rooted amidst all the stuff and value the good bits, try not to let them get overwhelmed by the bad bits.

Resilience comes from living and struggling and coping with problems! It doesn’t come from sitting on a desert island being the beneficiary of the fruit of the desert island tree much as that idea seems attractive. One who has never suffered from depression or anxiety or other mental illness cannot understand the lives of those who do. One who has never suffered from those things cannot help another sufferer.

No matter what phase you go through, please try to walk your way through it all.

See you soon.

Molayo x.

    How does this challenge work again? You post everyday for 15 days??? Girl, i bow to you. That takes some level of dedication i can’t even begin to imagine. You’re so courageous to have accepted it.
    I would’ve avoided it like a plague.

    Anyway, I just want to add to what you said by saying this: People are not brave because they don’t have fear in them. They’re brave because even though they’re afraid, they never let that fear stop them from doing what needs to be done. And that’s where courage comes in. (I preached at church yesterday so don’t blame me if i’m feeling myself just a liiiiiiitle bit haha!)
