Do adults still have idols? I definitely had some when I was younger… But as a 27 year old, I can’t think of one person I want to be, or be like. My life is not even that exciting but I still wouldn’t choose to be anyone else.
I am wary of idols cos they’re human. You big them up in your head and they fuck up and it ruins your idea of them. Hence never getting a tattoo linked to someone else. Are there even idols for adults like me? I admire qualities in people but I couldn’t blindly worship them. Ellen Page may be am exception, but I don’t want to be her, do her job, live her life, she’s just a strong-willed feminist who I’d probably get on well with if she’d bother her ass to come visit!!
I remember when I stopped wanting to be other people and decided I wanted to be me! I didn’t want to copy anyone else, I wanted people to want to be meee!! It’s an odd thought. There’s always someone in this world that would kill to live your boring, mundane life! Hilariously that was what I’ve been told on a few occasions my friends have been drunk. It makes me view myself in a different light. I’m lucky even when life is shit!
