I used to be attracted to the girls that needed saving. Man, that version of me feels like a lifetime ago.
Maybe somethin’ ’bout being a hero? Perhaps if I was able to save someone? Maybe we are so infatuated with the idea of pain being poetic? But it is beautiful — only in art.
I’m no longer that person.
In fact; nothing turns me off more than those who try to make suffering look appealing.
But you know what I do find enticing? Girls who choose to be their own hero.
They look within.
And take responsibility.
Won’t you, too?
