I am saddened to see so many people that I have admired turn in to big headed, egotistical morons. It's sad really. I see all of their fans cheering them on, not for what they have accomplished or who they are, because who they are is not who they were, or who they claimed they would be when they finally made it. Wake up people, you are blind if you follow people simply because you think they are going somewhere. I believe there is a quote that pretty much says it all, "the blind leading the blind to slaughter."
If you follow someone, support someone that you know in your heart has done wrong, then you too have not only done wrong, you are essentially a hypocrite. This person will never get you where you need to be in your life, because they don't even know where they are going. They have strayed far off of their path, and the saddest part about it is, they don't even realize it, nor will they, until they are so deep into the forest that all of the light is gone and they are trying to find their way back out.
I have lost my way many times. I'm ashamed to say that I have acted in a way that was not only inappropriate but shameful. I didn't even realize it while I was doing it, because I was lost deep in the forest. Once I finally realized I was lost, the only hope that I had was to fall on my knees and beg for the light to guide me back out.
If you see someone that you admire deeply or that you follow for guidance, going astray. Don't follow them into the slaughter how, or into the forest, reach out to them and help lead them back to where they need to be.
I believe a pedestal is only made to hold something up for a short time. Once you over stay on the pedestal, it weakens, cracks and crashes to the ground. Remember where you started and what your initial goals were. What were you working towards, what were you working for? Get back there, it's never too late to cry for the light to lead you out of the forest.
