I DON’T need a hero – I AM one!

During my morning workout the other day, songs were jammin’, we were sweatin and the following topic came up…http://visualcage.ru

It is SAD that as a society we seem to think women need a hero. We need to be rescued. Whose fault is this? My opinion? Mainly our own.

I know thats not REALLY what Nicki Minaj was singing about and I DO love singing along but I really hate the underlying come and rescue me theme. I’m not just picking on Nicki, its everywhere. In movies, in music and sadly I hear it from friends and acquaintances a LOT.

If I could go back and impart one piece of wisdom to my younger self it would be this…

Be your own hero

If I am someone who needs to be saved, who cannot stand on her on two feet, what do I bring to a relationship? To my community? to the WORLD?

What do you think? I’d love to hear your opinion.
