Choose any hero.
They all go through some sort of bad situation that tests them physically, mentally and/or emotionally. They face the uncomfortable challenges and actions that need to be taken.
They didn’t ask for it to happen, like a curse.
If a person hasn’t gone through any ordeal, they wouldn’t be seen as heroes to anyone. It is when an uncomfortable challenge presents itself that heroes are made.
The struggle makes the hero.
Every person that has gone through an addiction and overcome it has came out a better happier person. It’s as if the whole experience was a golden opportunity to learn about themselves.
I hope to get there one day.
