Many people who are blind seem to reject the fact that they are courageous, or brave. They seem to think what they do, how they do it is the norm for them. If more people who are blind saw themselves as courageous or brave, maybe they would feel good and "proud" of themselves.
I recall the first time I decided to take public transit to meet a friend to stay over-night. I was nervous, but I also wanted to start being more independent.
I wondered what would happen if I got lost. I had difficulty hearing, but I had enough, back then to travel reasonably safely.
The first time we do something, that is going to be difficult, we are being brave. We forget that we did accomplish something that took effort to do for the first time.
