Heroes are whoever you want them to be.
There is no definition aside from that they, to you, are heroic in whatever endeavour they are doing.
People need heroes because life is hard. Things are hard and it’s good to see that other people do things that are hard and come out the other side. Your hero.
Your hero might play football or cricket or act in TV or film.
They might fight fires or save people from dying.
They might be your parent or someone you know that looks out for you, stands up for you, loves you.
It might be a president of a country or a young girl who recovered from being shot to go on to speak at the UN.
They might just be a hero for a moment, an hour, a day or a lifetime.
Whatever, it doesn’t matter.
If they mean that to you, then good. And don’t let anyone tell you that they can’t be your hero, or that they aren’t heroic because they don’t fit their version of what a hero is.
A hero is whoever you want them to be. A hero is there to help you to be a better you. To inspire, to spur on.
You can be your own hero and you can be someone else’s. You might not even know it.
Choose to be heroic in whatever GOOD way you want. Because hurting people to feel better about yourself is not heroic and heroes, real heroes whoever they are, don’t do that. EVER.
Wishing you all the happiness the Universe can bring
