Today’s post isn’t going to be a long or educational one, but rather just a few thoughts. I was reading a brilliant post a few days ago from one of the blogs which I follow, and the author asked readers to describe the bravest thing they’ve done today (I’m adding the link to the brilliant blog post after this).
It had me thinking about the bravest thing that sufferers do in general. We might do a different brave thing everyday, we might face a new issue every day. One that might take its toil and leave us so stressed that it feels like the walls are closing in. That not even screaming would help, but you need to do it anyway. It might be the same issue as before, it might be new. However, facing these issues, fighting them….well, I think that’s very brave indeed. No matter if it’s getting out of the bed in the morning, or speaking up in a room with people, I think that these are very brave actions and we should spend a moment in the day just thinking of the bravest thing you’ve done that day. To realise how difficult it was for you and how proud you should feel for doing it. Whatever made you brave today, realise it. Take notice of it and think of how you feel now that you’ve done it.
Some things are easier for some people, and the same things difficult to others. We shouldn’t compare one persons bravery to anothers bravery. No one knows what it’s like to be in your shoes, and things that you might think are small, are huge things to others, and vice versa.
So take a moment everyday, and think about what the bravest thing was that you did that day and congratulation yourself for getting through it.
