Growing requires courage, and courage is a challenging virtue as it demands from us to face and come to terms with what frightens us. Often what we fear is more significant in our minds; once we take the first step towards conquering a fear or we confront a challenge, we end up realizing that we were more prepared than we thought and stronger than we imagined. Keep walking every day knowing that no matter what circumstances and challenges come your way, you'll have the ability to face it and the strength in the face of pain and grief. ⠀
Growing can be painful, but it's also liberating.
