I have noticed how it is a common view in human nature for people to think that celebrities have it made, or that they have the best life. All too often people seem to think that stars have it made and that it is just us regular people who seem to struggle greatly.
I have been doing extensive research on star biographies and have seen how often, stars seem to have had it much worse than me and other people that I know. While it isn’t good that we all seem to have to struggle before we can achieve, it is a good reminder. Just because someone has wealth or fame, does not mean that they have a good or even better life than regular folks do. Sure they may have power, but they can still be powerless to many people in their dealings. They may have fame, but not be able to leave their home without a dozen photographers stalking them, and their children, whether it be at Christmas time or a regular day. Stars may have money, yet still not be able to buy the really important things like love and family.
So, in the end it is safe to say that just because someone seems to have it all, that doesn’t mean they have life made. They still have to work to find success and to maintain relationships. They still experience death, loss, betrayal, and heartbreak. They too have their own personal issues that they try to overcome, everyday. This is really common knowledge, I mean I am not the only one on earth to realize such insight, yet it is still something that people need to be reminded of. The grass is hardly ever greener on the other side. Not once you get there. No one truly has it made. With every life comes happiness and grief, laughter and tears. Life and death.
I see people overcome so much and sometimes wonder how they just are able to gain strength and move on, and even achieve success. Look at Demi Moore. She isn’t just a beautiful face. She is not just an actress or a mother or a wife. She is someone who practically came from a broken home, full of alcoholics. Her step father committed suicide, her mother died, she divorced, and married at least three times. She raised three daughters who seem very level-headed. That to me says alot about her character, and this is what got me to thinking about this issue. You really have to admire and look up to someone who is so successful in life, and so unsinkable. She overcame all of the b/s and she won over the drama. Those are the kind of stories that put me back into reality. It is easy to think how others must have it better, or easier than we do, then bamm you hear about someone who has been through and overcame more than you have ever even seen. I find that very inspirational. To know that regardless of where or who you come from that there are people who still rise to the top in life.
May we all be able to be half as strong as such people.
