Even superheroes have to live with the perceptions of others, with their opinions, with their words and views. All of these are always based on very little knowledge, on snippets of information, ideas, quick glances: often completely wrong.
The opinions of others might feel like a box around you, telling you what you are, defining you. Your own ideas and wishes might begin to appear strange and a bit scary, a dream taking a shape of a nightmare.
Once you find the courage to ride the dream you will realize that the suffocating box of others views of you is just ignorant guesses telling more about them than you and that you can shrug it all off and ride out to gaze into your own horizon.
It takes bravery to remember that no one knows you better than yourself and that everyone is their own life’s superhero, fighting the unseen battles. It helps to know everyone else has their own villains harassing them and that there are always others willing to join forces with you and to have your back.
This is a post for and about Super Maya, who is a little six year old girl bullied in school. She dressed up as a superhero just to feel stronger and more able to handle the issue. Axi of Beautiful Freak made these fancy superhero nails just to send Maya a message of courage, and has asked everyone to take pictures of them and to add them in the Beautiful Freak’s flickr pool to send the same message to Maya. The nails are available in Silly 7. The boots by lassitude & ennui are also new and available in Geeks’N’Nerds.
