Fear Good or Bad
Fear something that all humans have if your not scared of something then you will eventually fear something if from a traumatic incident or a bad experience with them we all fear it is how we react to fear is what separates us. The brave fight while the "cowards" take flight.
The people who are more brave and see something there scared of like say a spider or snake they will first be scared but then they block out the fear for bravery.When they block it out for bravery they will squish the spider or try to kill the snake this is because of fight or flight. Fight is a natural human reaction to dealing with a fear, the problem with fighting is a spider and it bites and causing there attack pain and possible death.
Now the “cowards” are the people who use the flight response to deal with the problem causing them to flee. The flight reaction was caused in ancient times of the cave man when they saw people die from spiders so they feared spiders this fear was passed to us causing us to flee from spiders. This shows the fact that "cowards" do have good reason to run which will usually let them live longer but to some people more boring.
The brave people use fight from fight or flight when faced by fear compared to the cowards who use flight and run from there fears. People who are brave are able to face there fears and feel good about it like sky diving or a roller-coaster the "cowards" don't face there fears and usually are mad fun of. Yet if the braves fear is a snake and they try to trap the snake it will bite causing pain or killing when compared to the cowards who stay away from the snake and are not harmed. The brave and "cowards" seem very different but they share one common thing there brains both make the choice between fight or flight when faced by fear.
So fear causes people to react in different ways some fight there fears some when faced by fear take flight and run away, no way is right it is simple caused by which one the brain chooses fight or flight. to learn more about fight or flight watch this video by asap science.

What Bravery Means
The description of bravery consists of "courageous behavior or character" but that is not all bravery is. For example for someone to face their fears they most use a natural instinct such as fight or flight. Most important is the thing that happens when put in danger and you need strength and bravery to survive and it is called adrenaline. Adrenaline is the suspense or chemical your body produces that allows amazing feat of bravery, for instance lifting a car or sprinting away from the fire while saving the kid.
Last is having the willpower to do it this means knowing that there is danger and acting quickly as possible. So what bravery boils down to is having good character, utilizing fight or flight, using adrenaline to allow amazing feats, and having the willpower to do it.
