The trait of bravery has been identified as a universal character strength, and has been linked with courage, honesty, perseverance, valor, not shrinking from fear, and standing up for what’s right. People who embody bravery tend to report high scores on measures of life satisfaction and fulfillment. In order to achieve what they did, Judah Maccabee and his comrades required loads of bravery and in the end, it paid off.
Wishing you a holiday filled with joy and bravery!
