Per the norm, I am venting my feelings and thoughts, and I have no expectations of agreement, nor do I expect these to be read. These are, after all, my “Just for me” diaries. I am to the point of loathing social media sites and the celebrity butt kissers that exist everywhere. I don’t understand how people can look up to these folks with such a vision of idolatry. Are they not people? And the comments that are made to and about some of these folks are sickening, to say the least. I feel that I have reached a breaking point, and I would love to throttle some people. Where is their self esteem? I’m just going to bullet point my thoughts:
- Celebrities are just ordinary people who have high profile jobs with a lot of exposure.
- Their thoughts, ideas, opinions, and feelings are no more important than anyone else’s ideas, thoughts, feelings, or opinions.
- They aren’t perfect.
- Everyone has problems.
- They have as much right to their personal space and privacy as anyone else does.
- People pry, spy, and dig too much into celebrity lives.
Look… I am a fan of a lot of things. I love music and movies as much as the next person. But, I really don’t need to know every last detail of someone’s personal life, just because they might happen to star in a show I like. I think it’s sickening, and unhealthy, and abnormal to obsess over celebrities the way I see people doing. We all have passions in life, but ogling and worshipping a person you don’t know personally, on a one to one basis, seems a bit odd to me. All I know is that your own happiness should not stem from the successes, scandals, battles, or breakups of a person who doesn’t even know you exist. And jumping through hoops to try and get their attention makes a person a bit of a circus dog, doesn’t it? Well…those are just my thoughts. It’s something to chew on for a bit, for sure.
