If you summon your courage to challenge something, you’ll never regret it. How sad it would it would be to spend your life wishing, ‘If only I had a little more courage.’ Whatever the outcome, the important thing is to take a step forward on the path that you believe is right. There’s no need to worry about what others may think. It’s your life, after all. Be true to yourself.
