Courage in Human Maturity

There are days I reflect more about human maturity than others. Usually those days are full of empowerment, disappointment or even capacity of deep understanding. Working daily with “humans” we have only two options: to make the path of understanding or not to. I choose repeatedly the first way. It is within each human being the power to choose and change their own perspective.

In the middle of the night and in a professional reflexion, I’ve end up thinking about courage. To introspect about the need of courage to choose wanting to love or take decisions in a defensive path or a constructive one. I end up thinking about  the choice of the thoughts we want to have about one another.

Choice of courage, in my reflection, is the ability  to see ourselves as imperfects as the one in front of us, the courage to choose not to judge. The choice to be willing to care instead of ignore feelings that for sure are true inside of the ones that believe in construction.

The courage to deeply breath and decide to go towards one another. It is quite interesting that it is really true that we only have the present moment to live the love and enjoy the joy. We only have the present moment to kiss the ones close to us and choose our reality. We only have the present moment to say I understand you as I am, as you, a human being under construction.  It is true that it is easy to be happy when all is right and it is difficult to continue coherent when all is difficult. Coherence is courage. Courage to live to our values despite of the conditions.

Courage to be vulnerable, in my reflection,  is to accept that we do not know how others will respond to a candid message and do it anyway. To risk it. Courage it is needed  to continue clarification and overpassing blocks. All blocks are easy to change if we decide to.

Solution?  to change the perspective. To do so does not mean to ignore that other perspectives are there, it is to choose the best one towards construction. To apologize for a mistake or to a hurt we provoke into one another represents a steady  self worth capacity. To be able to see our own  self and therefore the capacity to improve.

Closed words of defensiveness dressed with a bride gown of pride covering low self esteem leads to exaggeration. The ability to listen to the pain and hurt we provoke to one another, even, unintentionally elevates us to the ability to offer a higher love, power and capacity. Sometimes it is just what it is needed to stay in the present. To love, as we do not know if the tomorrow will come.
