Can fame and fortune make somebody happy? Happiness doesn’t come from everybody watching your every move. Happiness doesn’t come from fame and fortune, there is too much pressure and too many people watching everything you do.
According to Can Fame And Fortune Make You Happy? The happiness that comes with being a celebrity is fleeting, your only happy at first until you can't walk your own dog without reporters asking you questions and taking pictures.
Although celebrities get "amazing perks, like free clothes from top designers, front-row seats at prestigious award shows, and trips around the world." many celebrities may not be as happy as they seem. According to a recent study and “Can Fame And Fortune Make You Happy?” “true happiness derives from having close relationships, time to focus on personal growth, and connections to your community.
To outsiders, constant attention might seem glamorous. In reality, though, it brings an enormous amount of stress. And One celebrity's phone has been hacked and her looks and eating habits have been criticized in the media.
The celebrity lifestyle can make those things extremely difficult. Famous people cant so much as walk their dogs or tie their shoes without being gawked at, photographed, tweeted about, or Instagrammed.” Would you be able to live this lifestyle? Or are you like Justin Bieber or Shia LaBeouf, who crumbled under the pressure.
Over Christmas Break, I got to spend time with my family, and my whole family had Christmas at my aunt's house. Before we went to my aunt’s house, we had Christmas at our house. We had basketball practice almost every day, since we didn’t have any games. For New Years we went to my friends house and watched the Ohio State vs. Clemson game.
I had a lot of fun at my aunt’s and at my house on Christmas. At my aunt’s house, I got to see a lot of my family that I haven’t seen since Thanksgiving. I got a pair of new boots and a virtual reality set. Christmas at our house was fun too, I got a new crossbow and a new basketball. After we left my aunt’s house, I got to go to try out my new crossbow.
On New Year’s Eve, my family and me got to go rabbit hunting, and watch the Ohio State Game. We didn’t get anything while hunting but it was still fun. That night, my family went to my friends hows to watch the Buckeyes game. I stayed at my friend’s house after the game was over. I’m not ready for break to be over, I wish it could have lasted longer.
