Most Helpful Guy
Fairy tales told me that a man with good enough character, treatment, and evidence on his side can restore a woman's faith in herself when she's been beaten down and broken by her unfair life. That if you set out to be a Knight in Shining Armor, those in your life - especially your family - will guide your path and help you save the damsel.
You can at the very least save her from a bad future, if not secure her for yourself.
That was the fairy tale. Reality: your family promises to do exactly that, then makes endless excuses not to later. You're on your own. The girl? So broken and bitter, she doesn't want to believe in hope anymore. Your efforts to give it to her just offend her even more than her oppressors have!
She throws her own life away. You're devastated. Your family is like: "Don't know what to tell you."
You try to move on. You find more broken souls. No hope. You find someone who acts like you can get somewhere with her. She turns out to be a dangerous psychopath. Suddenly, you're the one who needs rescuing! And you just barely get it!
Oh yeah... pursue your dreams? Do anything you set your mind to? Except the one thing you say you want to do. Then, all you ever hear is: "That will never happen! That's something you have to be born into! You're wasting your time! Focus on something else that will make money! Blah blah blah!!!"
Instead of helping you chase your dreams - even when they are almost within reach - those you once trusted most instead try to destroy your dreams, just because they don't understand them!
You save a man who's stranded at the roadside in a movie, you make a new friend. Try it in real life, and a 3rd-party tow truck driver shows up and tries to mug both of you. When he finds you don't have $55 for him to move the other guy's car a mere 7 feet to get out of the ditch, HE calls the cops - on YOU - simply for declining his offer because you don't have the cash! The stranded guy goes to jail. You get let off with a warning.
Get a government job? In the movies, you get a girlfriend - and hope she doesn't get assassinated. In real life? Your security clearance is revoked and you're laid off, because the Ukrainian orphanage your adopted siblings came from got blown up by Putin and the Feds can't verify the address anymore.1
