Heroes can inspire, lift us up, and show us what's possible.

But hero worship can bend from adoration to the surrender of agency.

We place our hopes in the hero, hoping they can save us. A trap.

We must become heroes ourselves.

@socketwench Better to save the hero-worship for Marvel comics fantasies and movies.

In reality, my heroes are the guys who come pick up my garbage at 4am on Monday morning.

@socketwench You have to be careful with hero worship. Some people take the hero's words to seriously. How do you think cults start?
