It is a shocking revelation that every year 800 000 people commit suicide http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suicide_in_India . However at a world population of about 7 Billion it is “only” one in 10 000 and not all countries are equal in this respect http://www.suicide.org/international-suicide-statistics.html
It is an even stranger fact that being a celebrity increases your risk of committing suicide significantly. Wikipedia alone lists 400 famous actors http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Actors_who_committed_suicide. Even if we allow that there are 400 000 famous actors in recorded history this would mean their risk of suicide is 10 times higher than that of the average population.
This is hard to explain, considering that celebrities have what most people are longing for : Money, mostly beauty, many friends, success ….
Generally it is believed that the the amount of stress that such a status involves, the lack of privacy and easy access to drugs are the reasons. The profession that follows celebrities in the suicide statistics with quite some distance, are doctors with about 2-3 times that of the general population http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/410643_2
Here is my theory :
Many successful actors had a youth where they, did not feel to be understood or even liked and early learned to appear as someone else that was appreciated by others. They early learned to appear as someone different then they truly felt they are. When they were discovered for show-business this early trained ability to play the a role – of not being true to oneself – was a big credit towards the ability to play any character needed in a play.
However later when they had to realize that all this did not give them true friends, freed them from loneliness or made them happy in any way – they had to realize that “They had built their house on sand”
The need to play someone else and to be entertaining and to think this is the way to make connections starts early :
I basically started performing for my mother, going, ‘Love me!’ What drives you to perform is the need for that primal connection. When I was little, my mother was funny with me, and I started to be charming and funny for her, and I learned that by being entertaining, you make a connection with another person.
When I decided to be a singer, my mother warned me I’d be alone a lot. Basically we all are. Loneliness comes with life.
This ability to play did not come from the joy of playing to be someone else but was a way of self-defense :
For me, comedy starts as a spew, a kind of explosion, and then you sculpt it from there, if at all. It comes out of a deeper, darker side. Maybe it comes from anger, because I’m outraged by cruel absurdities, the hypocrisy that exists everywhere, even within yourself, where it’s hardest to see.
You can fool people. You can fool anybody anytime of the day, but you can’t fool yourself. At night, when you go home, you’ve got to be straight up with you.
It is often in the beginning the fear to be different, of not being accepted by others and to be alone – while later the realization come that by not being true to your Self you attract the wrong friends :
I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel alone.
I finally faced the fact that it isn’t a crime not having friends. Being alone means you have fewer problems.
This need to hide behind the mask that over times becomes more real than the true Sense-of-Self even goes as far as doing physical surgery to fit the ideas :
You know, let’s put it this way, if all the people in Hollywood who have had plastic surgery, if they went on vacation, there wouldn’t be a person left in town.
For that reason I consider Eigen-Resonance http://www.informationenergymedicine-academy.com/category/coherence/
so important for everyone who does not want to live a live that is dictated by the expectations of others. Some people have an innate strength of being that does not shrink even under difficulties and our first and most primordial sense comes from our unique vibrations pattern – as I call them our EIGEN-Frequencies – others may learn how to be more secure in their own skin. We possibly use too much make-up, deodorants and perfumes to make this easy on an instinctual level.
Maybe it is the ultimate goal of existence to come to this complete sense of I AM -ness http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Am_That
and possible the countless reports about the miraculous healing qualities of the Bioresonance-LaesEr are based on the its working principle of feeding back simply the amplified frequency pattern of the person – nothing else http://bioresonance-laeser.com/introduction-to-eigen-resonance
