It seems as though those of us on the outside are always wishing we were them. We long to be beautiful, or handsome, incredibly talented, and admired by the world. So why is it that those who have those things don;t seem to be happy or fulfilled by them? They waste all their bounty by using drugs or alcohol to extreme, looking for some happiness that seems to elude them. Why?
We all think if only we had money, or looks, of possessions, then we would be happy. But the truth of the matter is that happiness is available to anyone, regardless of wealth or looks or any of the other things we have no control over. Happiness is within our reach. But we need to grab it. We can't always be looking for something better, but need to find contentment with our circumstances. For some reason the rich and famous sometimes have trouble with that.
Incredibly sad. Yet another tragic loss of a talent we all appreciated.
