Why is Hera the Greek goddess good?

Hera is not good, she's mean and always jealous of Zeus and his many mortal wives? this is both true and untrue. Homer portrays Hera this way because he was mistreated by a mean and shrewed wife. However, Hera is actually a very majestic and solom woman. The Greeks believed that she was the ONLY goddess that stayed with a woman all her life. Hera herself helps signify and represnt the fact the EVERYONE has both light and darkness inside them.
