On fear, courage and dog shit.

People often mistake my avoidance of love and relationships as fear. It is possible to avoid something without being afraid of it. I am not afraid of dog shit, but I'm not going to pick some up and hug it just to prove my courage. 
In the mean time, some of my most courageous acts go unnoticed. Most folk have no idea how brave I really am. Bravery is not determined by your strength, but by your resolve to continue despite your challenges. That's just as well because in regards to my strength, I fear even I have over estimated it.
