|One of the intellectual feats I conquered in high school.|
I think society tells us that if we're not able to be independent, we're weak and less valuable as individuals, that there's something wrong with us, and that we're worthless.
We promote the image of the self-made man/woman, who rises from the depths all the way to the top, championing hard work as their motto and chant.
Can you believe it? This toxic idea that promotes superheroes out of ordinary people - which cause harm because of unmet expectations and constant letdowns within oneself.
