Our lives are constructed of a series of conflicting ideas. What is life but a paradox? There is sorrow and bliss, misery and comfort, elitist propaganda and poverty, family and career. Of course, there are people who have it all together. But do they really? Why don’t you take a closer look? When we think of celebrities, we think of them as the supreme embodiment of the ideal, as if the odds of reality cannot touch them and they are somehow immune to these everyday struggles. But the truth is, they are real humans like us beyond the silver screens. They also struggle and make major life choices based on their priorities, just like we do and believe me, it’s a lot tougher for them.
