Even if you don’t read all the glossy magazines it’s quite likely that you are aware of some famous actors, musicians and athletes. Even if you never meet them and hardly care, they can become like ghosts in your social circle: a less solid but definitely detectable presence, that lingers sometimes for decades. What I find interesting is how my view of them changes over the years in a way that reveals how I changed over the years. In my very judgmental teens I passionately hated many of them: Britney (oh how I would hit you as often as you liked back then), Justin Timberlake or The Bloodhound Gang (now I get nostalgic :). Later I didn’t necessarily hate celebrities but I underestimated them like Ben Affleck or Matthew McConaughey. And now as I look of many of them, regardless of whether I like them, I find it hard not to respect the continuous work and self-development required to maintain at the top and keep expanding your abilities. What about you?
