in so many ways we have been taught that being brave is being tough and to be tough means to harden ourselves up. but this isn’t true. when we harden and close up, we aren’t living out of bravery; we are living out of fear.
instead, we can open our hearts, allow ourselves to be vulnerable, raw, receptive, open, present to life. this is true bravery, this is love, and fear has no hold on love. living love is how we are set free.
