On being unknown

It sucks being a nobody. Especially in a world where being somebody is an inherited trait.

People tend to take celebrity for granted in this age of social media. “just make a YouTube video and people will notice you”

Sounds nice. Until it isn’t. If someone puts a video of you doing the WRONG thing, it can ruin your life… or end it. That knowledge tends to dissuade people, making fame a sort of double edged sword…

Knowing that puts us in a strange situation. It’s human nature to want attention, but is even the cost of good attention (fame, celebrity) worth the time and effort put into it? Look at how celebrities are treated when they express an opinion. The reaction is shameful! Its as if after a certain point you are not allowed to have an opinion at all!!

So that being said, which in your opinion is worse: being known or unknown? I would settle for being known a little, but that’s just me…
