Sir Gawain’s faults can be a constant reminder of the mistakes we all make as humans along with the quote, “It is clear then that there can be no redemption without fault, just as one is unable to return from exile without first being sent into one.

There’re some who feel so ashamed by the hurt they’ve caused others that they fall into the never-ending cycle of self-loathing and guilt that they’re doomed to repeat them.
Bilbo Baggins is a hero for three reasons: he does not possess the qualities of an anti-hero, he fulfills the definition of a hero, and he adheres to his morals.

Throughout the difficulties and adversities he faced during the journey, Bilbo never once expresses hate for anyone.

Nobody is capable of changing the past. A person’s mistakes and the pain that they inflict on other people are permanent and irreversible. The potential to repair the damage lies by changing the future, not the past.
