The future isn't always as we want it to be, but we get there in the end and, sometimes at least, it's better than we expected.
Four and a half years ago I was in hospital attached to a drip after taking an overdose. As much as I wanted to be an author or an actor, I saw no hope of anything. Now I've three books published and appeared on the amateur stage.
None of which means that 'anyone can do what I do'. That phrase is fatuous and useless as I have a different background, genetic makeup and environment to anyone else.
What it means, is that we all have a hero inside ourselves which can help us, if we're allowed to use it.
I came out of an abusive marriage, a relationship which prevented my hero from showing himself. I also have a history of being bullied, another factor which has kept my hero from showing himself.
Once you can let your hero out, you'll be able to do so much more, not that others will like you for doing so as they will feel threatened. My ex-wife and those others who have controlled my life (and yes, I know I let them, but given it was the only life I'd known, there was precious little else I could do) didn't want me to be free of their influence: they loved the control.
I've found my hero. I hope you find yours.
