The title is absolutely correct. David Bowie is absolutely correct. We could be heroes, but should we take advantage of that opportunity? I don't know...

I don't have heroes anymore. Not that I ever truly did, cos back then (whenever that is) I didn't know myself. I would say that certain musicians or ordinary people who I looked up to were my heroes, but that was false. Slowly but surely, I've learned that there is a difference between heroes and idols. Idols, I do have. Heroes, I lack. I don't think I really want a hero anyway. A hero is defined on as someone with heroic qualities or has performed an heroic act. No one that I idolize or love does that, to be completely honest.

I don't want a hero, though. I want to be able to validate my ego on my narcissistic days by telling myself that I got where I am today by myself. Sure, others helped me, but no one gave the care-bear-stare to anyone who got in my way. No one kicked anyone who paused me on my "journey of life" into the depths of hell while screaming some epic quote. That would be a hero.

I hate to make this post sound so angry, cos honestly no anger is coming out of it at all. I'm just trying to reassure myself that I lived my life without someone walking me through each step. It's one of the few things that I take pride in.
