To Be The Hero
To be the hero of a fairy tale you must be strong, fast, kind, human in some aspects, and have friends. You must be the guy who is super dependable and swoops in at the perfect moment stopping anything that would be 'bad' or 'evil'. You must have the heart, and the instinct to throw yourself into harms way without even considering yourself to help another person. Everyone knows you, everyone loves you, you are the 'Hero' that everyone wants to be.
As said before, there is no 'Hero', except in fairy tales. If you where to ask yourself right now 'who would I jump infront of a bus to save?' you would draw a blank, and an acceptional few will see their closest family members. Not even fairy tales are as perfect as they seem. They are stories meant to inspire the feeling of 'heroism' into people. This feeling is what you get when you picture yourself int he same situation. Fighting off hordes of enemies with only your trusty sword and best friend at your side to save someone or something. This feeling is a lie that you create and you believe that their must be a 'Hero' out there somewhere, willing to do the htings that a fairy tale hero must do.
If something where to happen like from the stories of a 'Hero', or the guidelines I gave that you must follow to be a fairy tale hero, you would freeze. Stop everything you are doing, you will be powerless, you will be worthless to the situation. You wont be able to hunt them down and savesomeone, or get revenge. You are weak, feeble, and are not a 'Hero'.
Heroes are meant for Fairy Tales. A foolish childs fairy tale.
