As a human, You yearn for popularity
Yes. It’s true.
Even this person by name Philo (in case you are unaware, that’s me), who is nobody in the blogosphere, sincerely wishes to become famous one day! 😂😂 and have more followers and even earn money if followers are willing to shell out unhappily! 😜😜
My friend, you love being in demand
And you love being given importance from all corners.
This thought remains a secret and you are not comfortable admitting it.
You want to be famous, rich and successful.
The people you never knew beg for your autograph (olden days) and many try a selfie pose with you (these days).
No doubt fame brings a lot of benefits, the most important being money
Nothing wrong with it.
How about being rich, famous and vulnerable?
From the internet sources, I understand that celebrities are quite often pushed to anxiety, loneliness and finally depression.
If it is so, is it worth being famous?
I am ignorant of the proper answer.
Psychologists and psychiatrists say money and fame are no insurance against mental illness.
“How is it that some celebrities, whom the average person would believe to have all the popularity a human being could want, still admit to feeling lonely? It is quite naive to assume that popularity is the remedy for loneliness. Loneliness does not necessarily equal physical solitude; it is the inability to be oneself and rightfully represented as oneself.”
I don’t know how exactly one feels after achieving the success
Can that be the end of life’s goal?
Or do you think it is possible to maintain your fame till the end of your life?
The one who is famous today suddenly becomes nobody tomorrow. Do you feel bad that nobody recognises you in the later stage as your popularity decreases?
Many popular figures said they reached the breakdown point after becoming famous.
What could be the reason?
My guess is once you become famous, there is a conflict between the real person in you and the person you want to be represented for public consumption and you are unable to balance the two situations.
I may be wrong.
Don’t you gain more enemies than friends, once you become famous?
Social media has become a double-edged weapon.
It’s easier to become popular via social media and at the same time, the very same social media can be used for hatred towards you.
Is it not a fact that while achieving fame all that you get is…you get noticed and there the matter ends!
Most important thing is… you are never understood or appreciated.
Your opponents work overtime to defame you and you are busy defending yourself!
Simply don’t ignore this and say…oh! this is all part of life and one has to have thick skin!
But I know that you feel the hurt.
Irony in your life
These days it is funny that your popularity is decided by those billions of strangers rather than by the people who know your capabilities.
“I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer”
Maybe the video clip can throw some light?
Thank you for your visit.
Take care, my friend.
