I was baffled. My sixteen year old brain was reeling. You could have just told me that The Power Rangers were real. "Brandon, girls fart much more than you think. In fact, girls are farting all around you right now and getting away with it. IT"S A CONSPIRACY".
Granted, I may have taken it a little far at that age, but it was a valuable lesson I learned about the pedestals I unconsciously put people on. Looking outward, I did the same with the celebrities/mentors/teachers who were on the top of the path I was climbing up.
Humanizing who we idolize can have an excellent effect. You aren't the only one to have to push through this hurdle or the only one who has had these problems. Once we realize that these seemingly insurmountable goals can and have been overcome, it changes the way we think. No longer if you can make it, but when you make it. You may not know the exact means to get there, but you know it can be done.
But seriously though.....If you didn't know it. Girls fart. All.The.Time.
