There is a misconception that the courageous are "fearless." The opposite is true. Courage is acting in the throes of fear.
Courage and Fear agree to meet in the backyard.
Courage cooly sips a lemonade.
Fear clenches a tall double scotch on the rocks, chews the straw, and mops his sweaty brow.
They discuss an upcoming event.
Fear squints his eyes and leans toward Courage, “Are you KIDDING me?! There’s no freakin’ way I’m doing this!”
Courage takes a deep breath and says, “We’re doing this.”
NAME your emotion.
CHOICES are available.
