As Cicero says, we hate gladiators if they are quick to save their lives by any means; we favor them if they show contempt for their lives.”
Seneca, On Tranquility of Mind, 11.4b
No one gives respect to a coward.
No one admires the person who puts too high a price on their own needs, comforts, and individual experience.
The ironic thing about being craven is that the whole shameful act is done out of self-protection, but the cost of that protection is NOT a fair trade.
Find Courage. Live with dignity.
