So selfish for telling Kara how wonderful she is and how awesome she is. So selfish for being grateful that Kara believes in him. So selfish for trying to make things right now that he’s on earth and be a hero. Yeah guys, Mon El is really selfish…please!

Summary: As far as everyone is concerned, Kara Danvers is just a normal high school student. But when Lena Luthor is kidnapped and Superman is nowhere to be found, Kara decides to risk her normal life to save the girl. After things don’t quite go according to plan, though, and the rescue is caught on camera, Kara has to adjust to her new life as Supergirl. And if that isn’t difficult enough, she’s also determined to figure out how to get Lena to notice her as Kara Danvers.

Many strong girls have similar stories: They were socially isolated and lonely in adolescence. Smart girls are often the girls most rejected by peers. Their strength is a threat and they are punished for being different. Girls who are unattractive or who don’t worry about their appearance are scorned. This isolation is often a blessing because it allows girls to develop a strong sense of self. Girls who are isolated emerge from adolescence more independent and self-sufficient than girls who have been accepted by others.

Strong girls may protect themselves by being quiet and guarded so that their rebellion is known by only a few trusted others. They may be cranky and irascible and keep critics at a distance so that only people who love them know what they are up to. They may have the knack of shrugging off the opinions of others or they may use humor to deflect the hostility that comes their way.
