The main quality of a true hero is courage – not a reckless bravado, full of impulse and ambition, but a quiet, introspective courage. But what is courage? It is as defined the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; but with bravery.
We don’t develop courage by being happy every day. We develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity. Barbara De Angelis
In that quietness, the hero is able to discern and then decide on a particular course of action. He might see that it is better to let go of another person’s past rather than hold it against them or constantly remind them of it. With humility and courage the past is forgiven; the hero completely lets go.
Only true heroes can do such things. Are you a hero?
