🟨⬜ My Heroes (& heroines) - overview

Who this article is for

  • anyone wanting to know about my inspiration

This article will be about the people who inspire me most.

Important note:

None of them is perfect!
They were all humans, so they had their own weak spots, shadows, etc.
This is not about holding a "bigger than life" image of them and to glorify them.

We can learn from every single person in this world, so there is no bright line here.
This is just a collection of people whose positive qualities inspire me the most (while being able to hold their imperfection without diminishing my inspiration).

potential heroes

The following list contains people that inspire me as well, but I have never gone deeper into books they have written or that were written specifically about them.
So I'll just list them here under "potentiel heroes" until I've made a deeper dive into their lives & personalities.

  • Nelson Mandela

  • Anne Frank (currently reading)

  • Mother Teresa

  • Abraham Lincoln

  • Teresa of Avila

  • Ralph Waldo Emerson (read 1 essay twice)

  • and many more...

What about the women?

  • Video about why I believe it's easier (for me) to find male heroes than female heroines.

    • "natural" tendencies

    • unnatural structures etc.

  • Knowing my natural tendency, I will go searching more actively in the future

    • integrating both

  • right now would not be authentic to say, that any other person than the heroes above are inspiring me deeply & daily the most

further heroines I might look into

  • Mechthild of Magdeburg

  • Simone Weil
