Story of courage
When I was in school, I was the girl who used to be quiet in the class. I use to feel shy about talking to someone. I never used to participate in extracurricular activities. Although I love to participate in Sports Day very much. But due to not having that much courage to come in front of everyone I always use to stay at the back.
There was one of my dearest friend in the school who used to stay near my house. She always used to encourage me to participate in Sports Day as she knew I am very good at Athletics. She told our class teacher that she is good at athletics and asked her to give me a chance once.
Ma’am called me on Sports Day, she asked me to participate once in the races. First, I said no but due to their motivation I gave myself a chance and participated. After my participation, I used my whole strength in the races. When I got first everyone applauded for me. In this me, my teacher and my friend waited patiently for my courage to come forward. This is my journey of getting courage due to my teachers and friends. Now I am the girl who has full courage to do anything and can also speak in front of everyone.
“Two of the hardest test in life: The patience to wait for the right moment and the courage to accept that you’ve waited for nothing”
