Do all the perks way out what you have to give up? Fame and fortune can’t make people happy forever.
The happiness from fame and fortune does not last. According to Can Fame and Fortune Make You Happy “It turns out happiness that comes from fame is fleeting. It’s that kind of happiness you get when buy a new purse. That kind of happiness fades in no time.” Fame and fortune can make you happy but not forever the happiness that you get fades away. It is like getting something new then a week later you never look at it again.
Some people think that having a spotlight on them would make them happy. According to Can Fame and Fortune Make You Happy Jennifer Lawrence “spends her days doing what she Loves.” although people get to do what they love they also have to think of all the baggage that comes with what they love. They will not be able to do anything without having a camera on them. If they want to do something they will have to have cameras in there face to do the littlest things.
There are also different trust they have to give to people around them. According to Can Fame and Fortune Make You Happy “It can be difficult for celebrities to make and keep true friends.” It would be hard not knowing if your friends did not like you for who you are or that you are famous and have a lot of money. But if you do have a true friend they would also be hard to keep, because you always have something going on and if they never have time to hang out with the friend then the friend might move on. I would not want to have keep wondering if I would have a friend that day or not.
I would not want to be a celebrity. If I was a celebrity I would not be able to everyday thing that we take for granted. I would not be able to hang out with my friend, and to the little things that I like to do. I do not think that what you have to give up to be a celebrity would not make me happy, I could have anything in the world, but I could not have true happiness that comes from “having close relationships, time to focus on personal growth, and connections to your community.”
