… The disease of Celebrity..

8 Mar

I ran across a fan page the other day and was frankly stunned at the amount of outcries for attention in desperation, “I love you”, “Follow me”, “Please love me”, “Send me money”, and other prostrating behaviors. Are we so lost?

I just DON’T get it… Instead of seeking truth, practicing self-love, temperance and developing our own unique gifts… we are searching for inspiration on how to better ourselves through these so called role-models. Why?

They’re just a human being, and NO DIFFERENT than we are. They have no amazing attributes that we do not possess within ourselves.


Why are we trying to canonize people for talents that involve no talents – it’s like congratulating someone who’s given birth to eight children. Make sense?

We have completely lost track of what’s important….

So my question is this, where does this leave hope for our own children? How do we teach them to be individuals? How do we help them to see their own personal value? How do we teach them about individuality, self-esteem, loyalty, love, grace, faith, respect, and just how freaking much God loves them as they are!?
