Your real courage shows best in the hour of adversity.
Some setbacks are so severe that to give in to them means losing the whole ball game. When a defeat strikes, we may not have the time to withdraw and contemplate our mistakes without risking further setbacks. Let’s not succumb to paralysis. It is important to know at that moment what it is you truly desire and to act to preserve your resources and your hope. If you crumble utterly, you will take a blow to your self-esteem that will be hard to repair. Instead, stick to your principles, and you will know, at the very least, that you have protected the most important thing you have.
