Something I’ve learnt over the past few weeks is that cowardice builds walls in our lives, makes us hide our true feelings for each other, and prevents us from doing what we want to do.
Only with courage can we break down those walls, and bring us closer together in our friendships. Courage enables us to do what we want, and enjoy ourselves, and enjoy our time with others.
There are those who won’t like what you say or do, but we all have a right to an opinion, and a right to our own beliefs, for “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” (Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Chamber Of Secrets).
We should be proud of who we are and what we believe, and not worried about what people might think of us.
That said, we should respect each other’s opinions and beliefs, or we will be dismissing valuable friendships and ideas which can help us grow as a person.
