COURAGE NEEDS BOTH LOVE AND RAGE

The word courage can be split into two - Cour-Rage.

Cour - from the French word Coeur, meaning heart.

Rage - an emotion - fury, anger, fire in the belly.

I could never have found the courage to leave without the rage. And the love of my children. The moment that I was offered a place in a Women’s Shelter, I realised the gravity. The truth of what I was exposing my children to took the air from my lungs. I could loose them forever. I’d already lost myself. Courage.
