‘I tore myself away from the safe comfort of certainties through my love for truth – and truth rewarded me.’ Simone de Beauvoir said. Your own truth she meant. Not the truth of others. And what is harder than knowing your own truth? Pursuing your own truth. Everyone will say you are wrong and want to make you see why they are right. Braveness comes from the heart. Showing other people what you are made of will never have a happy ending. De Beauvoir also said: ‘If you live long enough, you’ll see that every victory turns into a defeat.’ It is not about victory, not about being right and not about other people. It is about you. How brave are you?
