social courage: standing up, speaking up when no one is looking.
“Social courage means not conforming to the expectations of others, being willing to show your true self even if it means risking social disapproval or punishment. It means being able to express opinions and preferences without checking to see if they are in line with “everyone else’s” opinions and preferences.” Wikipedia
I remember years ago when I was married to my first husband. People at his work were making sexist jokes. My husband came home and told me that he was uncomfortable but did not say anything. We had a discussion about how to speak up so you don’t lose your job. He went to work the next day, and expressed his discomfort with the discussion to those involved. He did not attack the people, he did not get self-righteous and tell them what they need to do. He just spoke his truth.
Social courage is speaking your truth, even when no one of importance is watching.
