On Bravery…

I, like everybody else, have a certain fear of heights, and I have to be very careful when I am in the clouds, but it is also what I love; it is my domain, so when you love something, you don’t have fear.

-Phillippe Petit

btw – The documentary was much better than the movie. Some might call it a film, but it wasn’t. It was a movie.

Fear keeps us safe. If we had no fear, we would never have survived this long. Fear is not to be avoided, it is to be respected and managed. We should not let fear, interfere, with our goals.

Bravery is an act of defiance. Bravery is the will to stand up and speak up even though the situation might not be to one’s perfect advantage. Bravery is taking risks and having the conviction to see them through to their own unique and individual ends.

Bravery is not a lack of fear; it is a willingness to act, despite.
