Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.
Someday, in the moment of death, your whole life will pass before you. In a few fractions of a second--because time no longer applies--you will see many incidents from your life in order to learn. You will review your life with two questions in your consciousness: Could I have shown a little more courage in these moments? Could I have shown a little more love? You will see where you let fear stop you from expressing who you are, how you feel, or what you need. You will see whether you were able to expand into these moments, just a little, to show love, or whether you contracted.
