Examples of Courage for Kids – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Danielle Ashkenazie     When choosing a high school I didn’t want to go to a certain school. All of my friends were going to a different school and I wanted to stay with them. I convinced myself that school was perfect for me. I begged my parents and very smartly they told me no. I was afraid to go to the new school because I didn’t want to make new friends and go into an unfamiliar place with unfamiliar people. Now, I realize that the school I ended up going to is the perfect place for me. I flourish here. I was forced to take that risk and I am glad I did it. Fear of uncertainty and unfamiliar things stops us from being the happiest we can be. Sometimes the unfamiliar path is the best one for us and will be the best for us in the long run. We can’t be afraid of uncertainty. It holds us back from too many opportunities.
