Idols and Role Models
Having an idol is one of the important thing in life as having an idol also means having role model either for action, attitude, or any kind of act that represents the idol. The idol in this post has a vast meaning. Can be a bad idols, good idols or even just the normal idols.
The most important thing in idolizing someone is that you have to realize that its a human which of course has an in-perfection as any other human being on earth.No matter how perfect of what we see in our idol, they are still humans, complete with their set of mind, attitude, choices, their gifts and their downside.
When we idolize someone, a question to our self should be asked like:
Is what he/she do is the right thing?
Then we should ask again in a different question:
Are all what he/she do is the right thing?
What u see in a role model has to be seen really carefully weather it is the right thing to do or a big mistake.
For instance, idolizing a long haired musician with a heavy metal style of music with the side order of drugs. Are all to be idolized that role model? of course music and hair style is a matter of taste, but drugs? for one thing its against any law in every country thus hazardous to your own health and life. Should be follow all that? or just choose the right one and get rid of the big mistake part? This instance also works in other meaning not just musicians, artist, politicians. etc.
The idol him/her self has to stay alert for any small actions that may result in an error may destroy what he/she has accomplished this far. Stay low and don’t get your head to big.
Idols, gosips and actual news are related to one another and they affect widely. Even more if the idol is already dead, what only left is the gosips and actual news which dissipate through time or even manipulated by those who has personal interest for them self.
So in my personal opinion, idol or a role model is important to make this world go around with all the humans in it. Most important is to understand what the idol is, after you understand, and if its your choice then be happy as you have a choice in life.
