I find it to be amazing how people just break down celebrities in such harsh ways. Now I fully understand why some celebrities have problems with depression, insecurities and a whole host of other issues they are dealing with. I looked at some of the comments people write about them and I’m thinking, where is the love?
I was diagnosed with Graves Disease at the age of 13. And if you are not familiar Graves Disease it is a hyper active thyroid gland. I had to receive radiation treatment to have my thyroid gland removed. But before I was diagnosed, the disease had effected my throat area and it was severely swollen. Kids would make fun of me and say all kinds of harsh and sick things. I was obviously far from a celebrity but I could relate that I was being judged and for me it hurt because not only was I not looking “normal” I wasn’t feeling “normal” as well. I remember fighting boys because I was not going to tolerate it!
A lot of people who are judged and talked about aren’t so strong. People escape with drugs, alcohol and in worst cases suicide. Why the harshness? There are even shows where people sit around talking about what famous people are wearing! I just want to ask them, “So, when you were younger did you dream of growing up to be a critic of other people?” That takes away from love and gives people the comfort to go ahead and judge others simply for things as simple as the clothing they decide to wear! “Woo hoo I get paid to talk $hit!”
We have to take it upon ourselves to love everybody, starting with ourselves. We especially need to love those who do not love themselves! It is not easy to stand strong, but if you see someone say something negative step in. Leave a positive comment, because even responding negatively to negativity you are feeding right into the trap! Killing people with kindness actually makes them feel worse and a little fearful. The first reason is because they feel like $hit for talking about people and then they feel weird because you’re not giving them the response they expect. When you want to freak someone out who did something messed up, most likely they are trying to elicit an angry response. Why? Because most likely they are angry with themselves. So the key is to play mental chess and respond in such a way that they never see coming!
