Sometimes I get so sick of being (or acting) brave
For my birthday a few years ago, one of my close gal friends got me a cute ornament from the movie “Brave.”
On the card she wrote: “You are one of the bravest people I know.” She wrote that when I was going through a very hard part of my life, there off at university.
It was true: I was very brave. I think that’s my norm (being incredibly stubborn helps too. And having a strong sense of right and wrong). But sometimes I get so tired of being brave. I just want to curl up into a tiny ball and be scared of life.
I want my heart to stop hurting.
