Growing up, who was your hero?

My hero was Matilda. I always thought she was so cool being able to levitate objects. After viewing the film, I had recurrent dreams of myself being in situations where I would be able to levitate objects. As I found out through searching, that dreaming of being able to levitate objects means the desire for power which I did not have in life. It makes sense upon thinking back to Matilda, most children desire to have power which they do not have.

I had imaginary powers when was a kid & got lost in fantasy too, but how does that make Matilda your hero though? Maybe I'm misunderstanding the question.

I think I may be the one who miscommunicated. I guess the thread title should be rewritten: Which fictitional character did you admire or made the greatest impact on you?

Honey, we get it, we get it. You're into Matilda. Now settle down a little, have a cold drink, and think about why other children may avoid you.

I absolutely loved Underdog. Dudley Doright as well.

My brother loved Mighty Mouse.

I had no heroes, looked up to no one, everyone seemed greatly flawed and not worth emulating. Maybe that is why I am so triggered by the habit lately of labeling everyone a hero. Some people go way beyond in their roles, do great things but in my book that doesn't make them heroes.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
