My personal definition of courage is doing something dangerous, something difficult, at the possible cost of yourself or those you love. Examples of being courageous would be a situation where a robber is a robbing a person walking down the street and a man tackles the robber to prevent any robbery. I think courage comes from the heart because you don’t do it because you have to, you do it because you want to.
An incident related to courage once happened to me. On a Monday in school while I was sitting at my desk as two boys in my class were arguing over a matter that I did not know anything about. I stood up from my desk and went to the scene to see what was going on. One of the boys was about to raise a fist and I quickly separated them both until the teacher came.
I felt very good about myself because if I did not intervene someone would have gotten hurt. I had courage during that situation. Courage does not always mean acting physically. For example, if someone is getting robbed across the street and you call the cops, that would still be considered an act of courage.
I think being courageous helps people mentally because if the person intervened during the incident and probably saved the person’s life he/she will feel good about themselves. If the person did not intervene during the situation and someone either got injured or killed it will probably make the person feel bad about themselves.
