Poetic way of telling someone that they are extremely brave or heroic. But it is also used ironically when their bravery goes too far and turns into madness.
The term "falling star" is used because symbolically, the rocks that turn into shooting stars have the courage to enter the Earth's dangerous thick atmosphere in order to make skywatchers happy and allow them to make a wish.
Person 1: Have you read in the newspaper that this guy conquered all of his biggest fears and revealed all of his secrets to the public in order for his crush to accept having him as her boyfriend?
Person 2: Wow, so it is true that love makes you as brave as a falling star.
