A letter to my Son- Courage


My Dearest Son,

in everyday life, you need a lot of courage. You need to be brave to ride a bicycle for the first time. Put that helmet on, hold the handles firmly, put your feet on pedals, and go. Even if you fall once, twice or ten times. Stand up. Have the courage to face this challenge again tomorrow. Nothing feels better that victory after you were about to quit.

You need to have the courage to speak up your mind. If all your friends love football, but you prefer tennis- say it at loud. If you're not a fan of computer games- say it out loud. If you don't want to smoke that cigarette, drink that beer or smoke that skunk- say it out loud. You need the courage to be different than others. Well, we all are different, so do not compare yourself to others. There will be always somebody younger and somebody older than you, taller and shorter. Slimmer and fatter. Richer and poorer. Just be the best version of yourself.

Have the courage to be a good person. Protect the ones who can not protect themselves. Share. Share your love, your food, your belongings with those, who have less. Never turn your head away from hunger and poverty. Have the courage to love whoever you want. But allow this love to grow organically and care about it a lot.
Have the courage to chase your dreams. Even the biggest, the craziest, the ones which seem unreal.

And never stop dreaming.

'It's tough' you may think. 'What about a fear'? Fear is a part of human life. It will always exist. Accept it and learn to live with it.

In the moment of hesitation, remember that I decided to bring you to this world because I was certain that you will be brave enough to live your life to the fullest. I hope I did give you all of the tools needed.

Courage is the secret of life. It is what freedom is made of. And only a brave man will be free.

My Love, have the courage to say to me 'stop' when I treat you unfair. I hope I'll never will, but please- do. And encourage me to have the courage to be myself forever. I love you!

Mum x

  5. One word really struck me from your letter to your son and that was courage. Sometimes we are afraid to speak up and voice our opinions, sometimes we lack the confidence to be ourselves and reminding ourselves to have courage and put ourselves out there is so important to our wellbeing.

    1. Absolutely! And we often misunderstand what courage really is. Many people think that it equals being rude (not being afraid to say nasty things to others), or crazy. To me being courageous means to live the life the way I want. Thanks for reading and commenting, Ana! :)

  12. What a lovely letter. I have always tried to encourage my son and when he says "I can't" I remind he that he can, and he should try, and that he can be anything he wants to be. I hope I can continue to help him be courageous.
