Hercules.... wanted to be a hero.
For achieving this would allow him to return home.
Trial after trial he conquered.
His reputation grew for being a saviour, a feat of strength...a hero for the people to rely on and come to on in times of trouble.
Soon he was a big celebrity in town, a famous face, a renown fire stopper.
Did that make him a 'hero?'
No, no, no it didn't.
Just as the general consensus of the people does not mean you are desolate, hopeless, stupid, unworthy or untrustworthy. The general consensus of people does not make you admirable, worthy, clever, special or privileged.
Acceptance comes from within and so does love, only you can do it for you.... so please do.
