When your success hovers from one person to the other, it will definitely get to someone who will regard it as failure.

Life isn’t like that.
Not every hero can stay valiant. Sometimes, they can’t even stay a hero, so what does that make them? A failure? A pussy? A total failure jerkwad with no hope on the horizon save finding a cemetery and digging rectangles in the ground for the town drunk?
