From the outside, it can seem as though certain celebrities have it all. This is because the average celebrity can be talented, good looking, have plenty of money and millions of people all over the world can admire them.
And when it comes to a celebrity like this, one can believe that they just happened to get lucky and to hit the big time. That is, of course, unless one believes that someone like this is ‘special’.
Yet, regardless of whether one believes that someone like this is lucky or special, they can see them as being in charge of their life. Unlike the average person who has a boss who tells them what to do, they will be the master of their own destiny.
This can be seen as something that takes place as a result of them having so much money and power. Therefore, if they don’t want to do something, they won’t do it, and, if they are not given this option, they will be able to walk away.
The Only Downside
Nonetheless, what could cross their mind is that even though they have so much going for them, what they can’t avoid is getting older. In additional to this, one could be only too aware that they will still experience loss.
So, as much as their life will be radically different to the average person’s life, there will be a number of things that will be the same. Ultimately, no matter how much money they have, they won’t be able to have complete control over what happens to them.
One thing that someone like this can experience is a strong need to not only look good, but to also look young. The big trouble with this is that their appearance will change as time goes by, meaning that it is impossible for them to look young forever.
Even so, this is not to say that they won’t try to delay the inevitable by having surgery or inserting chemicals into their skin. There will come a point, however, when this approach will no longer cut it.
A Heavy Burden
Getting older can be something that will cause them to worry about whether or not their fans will lose interest in them and they can fear that someone younger will take their place. Due to how much pressure they experience, it can be hard for them to enjoy what they have.
There may even be moments in their life when think about how they would trade it all in for a normal life; a life where they don’t experience so much pressure or need to maintain a certain appearance. At times, then, they could feel as though their level of success has imprisoned them.
But, thanks to how long they have experienced life in this way, there is the chance that they wouldn’t know who they were unless they were famous. Not being famous would then be experienced as a loss and it would be as if they had died.
Being a world famous celebrity is then not free from challenges; in fact, it can be a very empty existence. What can also cross their mind is that other people only like them based on the idea that they have formed of them, not on what they are actually like as a person.
Having said this, a celebrity might not actually have as much power as they appear to have. The reason for this is that there can be people above them who have far more power than they do.
Thus, while it can seem as though a celebrity is their own boss, they can simply be an employee. Compared to the average person they can appear to be at the top, but in reality, they can still be well below the people who exercise a lot of influence over the planet.
That’s not to say that these people actually have all the power; it’s just that so many people are kept in ignorance. These people have all kinds of ways to keep the masses distracted and oblivious to what is going on behind the scenes.
A celebrity can then spend a lot of their life singing or acting, for instance, and they can be told that there are other things they will need to do. What this could mean is that they will have to go along with whatever narrative the establishment wants them to promote.
An Important Role
The work that someone does as an actor or a singer could be just a way for them to pull people in. After all, if it wasn’t for the fact that they looked good and had a talent, there is a strong chance that very few people would pay attention to them.
In order for them to have as much influence as they do, it would have been necessary to build them into a godlike figure. It would have been clear that once this had taken place, millions of people would happily go along with what they say, irrespective of how crazy or irrational it was.
Right from the beginning, someone may have been told that the only way they would make it was if they were willing to lose themselves to gain the world. Behaving in ways that are in alignment with what other people want may have meant that they have lost touch with their true essence.
Their need to maintain their status could be all consuming, which could mean that they are not even aware of how this is causing them to compromise who they are. Then again, they could be only to aware of what would happen if they were to exert their own will.
It has been said that things are not always as they seem, and this could be an appropriate saying when it comes to certain celebrities. These people are simply human beings; they are not gods or goddesses.
To place someone like this at this level doesn’t make any sense. The only way it can make sense is if someone is projecting a lot of things onto these people and is unable to see them as just human beings.
