Our society has a way of warping what it means to be brave, or courageous.
What represents heroism today? To the left, it would seem clear: Caitlyn Jenner for being a trans millionaire. The idea that “loving” your North-of-300lbs body is admirable. Getting out of bed when you’re struggling with depression (Battling mental illness blows. And it’s really hard. But I’m not a hero for doing it). Rejecting family and children in favor of a life of perpetual adolescence.
