Yay! Another nice, long, one-pager. I love these.
#68. Be brave. Even if you’re not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.
There’s a lot of different reasons that I see this one as true. Firstly, sometimes you have to be brave simply because it’s time to be brave. Things can happen that you can’t help, and in those moments you have to be brave no matter what because there simply isn’t another option. Second, Sometimes you have to be brave for yourself. You have to choose that today is that day that things are going to be different, and you have to pretend that you’re brave until it becomes a habit and you suddenly are what you’ve been trying to be. And finally, you have to be brave for other people. If someone is looking to you for comfort, you have to be brave, or at least act brave, even if you don’t feel that way. Because they need you.
