Together We Are Stronger- Busting the Myth of Lone Heroes
We think of them as lone heroes, but they’re really rarely alone. Still, they seem to have become the embodiment of an impossible ideal we have subconsciously accepted – the idea that it is preferable to be completely independent. Our society has long promoted the ideals of individualism and autonomy, but these famous examples all have backup! Whether sidekicks or family, love interests or butlers, or entire teams, they show us that none of us need to feel the need to do anything alone, if even the most super of heroes don’t. Let’s bust the myth of the lone hero and begin to allow ourselves to thrive in community, like our heroes really do. Let’s choose to be our best individual and unique selves, AND let others help, support and love us. Maybe that’s the real lesson they teach us: we are stronger together.
