“Pain shared is pain lessened; joy shared is joy increased.” — Spider Robinson
So often we underestimate our capability and our faith in ourselves and life gives way to pessimism, procrastination and despair. Reading stories of others who have overcome their fears to pursue their dreams, triumphed in the face of adversity or simply refused to let their setbacks or cynics define them can be a huge source of motivation when the going is tough.
So with that in mind, I invite you to share your story, how you found the courage and resilience to press on, and what you learned along the way. You never know whose life you will touch by doing so.
Disclaimer: Submitted stories will be reviewed and as long as they are not offensive, abusive, profane or obviously spam, they will be posted on the Read Courage Stories page. Your stories are your own and by submitting, you are giving me the right to post, share, publish your story. Now that we have that legalese out of the way, go ahead and share your story of courage.
