“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are”
As I wondered about this quote
I became curious about the written meaning of courage. According to dictionary.com the meaning is:
1. the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; bravery.
2. the heart as the source of emotion.
Having the ability to face difficulty, pain danger ect without Fear…
Growing up… truly embracing and becoming who we are can be scary for many of us… That “fear” of failure, unknown, not good enough… So much fear for so many… And yet some may not even recognize it as fear.
To become who we really are as we grow up makes me wonder how many Never reach their fullest potential due to the lack of courage and living a life filled with fear.
For me Courage means strength, strength means strong character, strong character is self confidence … Self confidence is love … The ability to truly Love yourself… And Love
Cast out all Fear…. I am reminded of this biblical quote…
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear. – 1 John 4:18 NKJV
So as we continue to “grow up” and become who we really are… It all goes back to Love… Loving yourself, loving others… What a world we could live in!
It’s time to grow up and Love yourself and have the courage to become who we all truly are!
