Cowardice

Hello everyone, wife here!
I am going to talk about cowardice today. What does cowardice mean to you? To me, it means the trait of lacking courage. There's much that could be said about it. Hearing your conscience speak to you and not following it. Seeing the high road but following the low road. No matter which words you want to use to describe it, the bottom line is that our lives are full of choices between right and wrong, and if we truly want to make something special of our lives we need to be prepared always to follow the right no matter what the consequences are.

When I was a little younger, I have been a coward. There have been many times in my life when I have known that something was right, but I have taken a different path for whatever reason. A lot of things happened when I was very young, but they've stuck with me all through the years.

Honestly, I don't beat myself up about what I have done. I simply acknowledge it and I am hoping that the lessons that I have learned from not doing what was right will stick with me and guide me through the next decisions that I have to make. I want to avoid being a coward not because I fear being called that name, but because I know that cowardice is me not being the person I'm supposed to be. My sincere hope in life is that no matter what happens, I'm able to recognize the right path and follow it, for my sake and the sakes of everyone else who may be involved in anything that I do.

Being silent when people are angry is not cowardice. When emotions are high, it is difficult to get your message across. Instead of learning to argue back in these heated situations, consider learning how to present your points in a rational and acceptable manner. Don't keep it all to yourself. Be assertive not aggressive. Be positive about yourself and deal with the things that surround you. Being a coward is not a good thing. Learn to overcome it and then be more sociable.

There is something that everyone in the world does that makes us who we are. It is thinking. Everyone thinks and as a man thinks in his heart so is he. All you have to do is consider carefully your thoughts when you say you act like a coward, arrest the thought, change the thought to what will make you act strong and not cowardly. It takes practice, it doesn't change just like that. Being a responsible person that you are, I am sure you will take full responsibility for this and do what you have to do.

I believe God did not create a single weak person. We have choices to make. We can choose to be victims and you are not a victim. We can choose to do what it takes to get to the top of the game. It is possible but not always a walk in the park.

I have to say, cowards don't exist. Until next.

It does take a lot of courage to speak up and stand up for what you believe in.

The important thing is that you are using what you learned from your past to help you make decisions today.

I believe we all experience those times in our lives where assertiveness evades us... or we evade it.

Am married to a man with Bipolar and Manic Syndrome and am no coward in sharing the fact of my life that his family attributed to his ill-health by constantly badgering as a child and young adult until he lost his mental balance last year.
Now he doesn't talk to the wife and child and guess what I have no hassle, his life and I just let him know of my life I lead and put food on the table within norms of decency.

Never was a coward and never will be either as I am a warrior who fights for what is right and within the norms of the law for my safety and life.
