Is it Brave to suffer in silence, my teacher asked. To answer a question like that one most answer what is to suffer. Is it having a bad day or knowing that you won’t live any longer than to the age of 20. Dos it takes courage to live a life in pain alone? Or is it just stupidity? Or are you, in fact, protecting others from your suffering that is the Brave thing to do? To suffer I silence has nothing to whit being brave.
