I saw Avengers: End Game tonight. Don’t worry I won’t spoil anything. Except for a quote I loved. And repeated it to myself many times during the movie so I wouldn’t forget it. I imagined it was on my whiteboard when I walked into my room, a memory house.
“Everyone fails at who they’re supposed to be.”
“The measure of a person, a hero, is how they succeed at being who they are.”
The world, your friends, your mother, your sister, the person walking down the street, your boss, they all have an idea of who you’re supposed to be.
Try too hard to be that person and you’ll fail. Everyone does. It’s a tough lesson. But worth it.
The lucky realise the person they’re supposed to be isn’t who they are.
