Fear

Everyone in my family considers our dog a big chicken.  She barks at every little noise and startles at stupid things.  If you think of it though, would the better word for Maya be brave?  Bravery doesn’t mean without fear, it is facing something even if you are afraid.  Even though Maya is afraid of the neighbor’s German shepherd, does the fact that she tries to show that dog that she isn’t scared mean something more?  She is facing her fears, even though she reacts the same way every single time.  She goes in fearful but brave.  That giant dog scares her, but she still tries.  Shouldn’t everyone be living their life like that?  I’m afraid of doing this job interview, but I’m going to go into it pretending I’m not.  I guess it is kind of a ‘fake it til you make it’ situation and while the the thing we fear might not get any less scary, if we keep trying and getting up when we are knocked down it shows everyone and the thing we fear that we aren’t going to give up.
