What is a hero? Hero's come in loads of different shapes, sizes and colors. Some kids see hero's as the people who save the world, lift up cars to save puppies, some see hero's to be the people who will keep them safe from the monster in their closet, but i think in a way everyone is a hero. We all save someone from something, it could be anything from saving a friend from a boring dinner date, saving a butterfly from getting trapped in a spiders web, but its still being someones hero. Teachers often say, "it only takes one person to make the difference!" and all the students role their eyes and think "yeah right" but in a way its true we just dont want to believe it, we dont want to take the responsibility of being that one person because we are all scared of failing. We all need a hero, someone to 'have our backs' someone to hold on to, someone to be our safe haven, someone who's hand we can grab on to, someone to talk to, someone who's eyes tell us enough without them having to say anything. Im sure there are thousands of posts identical to this one im writing right now but if everyone realized what they actually had, how many hero's they have in their life and how many people they have in their lives that would risk anything for them, the world would be a much happier place. I have another question for you reader, do you have enemies? I know i do, sadly. Some people think its okay to have them that its a part of life, and up to a point it is but do you really want to pretend like you have a great life when actually you have someone you dislike or dislikes you. Now dont get me wrong, it happens, we cant please everyone, some people dislike our personality and hey F*** them im not changing who i am to please one person. But sometimes its worth the change, you might just find that they are your hero, that the change they put you through opens doors for yourself and you are introduced to something new. And we all know humans literally crave for new things. Just last year something happened in my life that changed me forever, for the good and bad. It happened and i will have to live with it for the rest of my life and in some ways i am happy that it did happen because it opened my eyes and let me see how much i have and what i needed to sort out. I nearly lost someone that i love over everything and everyone...but i didn't and i am unbelievable grateful that even though i have never been a great believer something or someone stopped it from happening. So i am happy to have people who love, understand, hold me, 'have my back', hold my hand, tell me everything without saying a word, people who will teach me lessons, people who have become my enemies, because they made me who i am today.
So.. Dear Reader, do you have a hero? Do you have enemies? I hope after reading this post you can think about all the things i have confessed to you and asked you and maybe you will see that life is brilliant and unique.
P.s. You only live once so make it last ;)
