How To Be A [Modern] Superhero

Know the difference between what’s right and what’s easy, and choose to do what’s right anyway.
Do the thing that scares you. Stop thinking, just do it.
Have the guts to tell someone the truth when something’s bothering you.
Don’t fear your emotions. Let them in instead of pushing them a way.
Put other’s needs before your own when you can.
Take care of yourself, even when that’s a hard choice to make.
Let it go.
Try your best, even when you honestly don’t know if you’ll succeed. Try anyway. Who knows, you might do something fantastic.
Decide to stop running, and face your fears head-on.
Take a stand on something that means a lot to you. Don’t be afraid to have an opinion.
Don’t discount your successes. Yes, you did that thing. And it was awesome. Be proud.
Stop apologizing for everything.
Fight for what you deserve.
Tell someone you love them. Stop being afraid of the word.
In fact stop being afraid of words in general. Especially the ones people use to label you.
Stop feeling like everyone is watching you and waiting for you to mess up. You’re human. and they don’t actually care.
Let the anxiety in instead of pushing it away.
Take time for yourself. You deserve it.
And always remember there’s someone out there who’s proud of you, they just might never find the words to say it. You mean the world to someone. So relax and be yourself. You’re enough.
