I believe in ordinary acts of bravery, which aren't always what other people find brave. If you go skydiving, and you aren't afraid, why in the world would I ever call you brave? I wouldn't. There is nothing courageous about doing something you aren't afraid of. On the other hand, if you go skydiving while you're terrified, then yes, that is brave. Acts of bravery are defined as the actions a person takes when they are defying their own fear. So, just because something doesn't seem extreme to you doesn't mean that it didn't take a person's every ounce of courage and conviction in their body. Let's not undermine that.

Short answer: it can be, yes, but it depends on the individual.
