Have you ever wondered:
When you'd get your 15 minutes of fame?
Maybe a better question to ask is:
Why Do We Want To Be Famous in the first place?
Here's the problem with fame:
It's a status that divides somebodies and nobodies.
According to Robert Fuller, Ph.D.:
"a wish for fame belies the existence of a crippling, undiagnosed malady, one rather like malnutrition..."
In keeping with the malnutrition metaphor, the malady of fame-seeking is like overeating to protect against malnutrition.
He writes about our culture's clamouring for fame as an attempt to preempt indignity.
(I am getting to Mother's Day, btw)
I think losing dignity is like gaining an ingrown toenail. It's always there; a constant and painful reminder that something's wrong, diseased. . .
