Takes a step……thinks of just running out of here…..no no…..takes a deep breath, keeps walking…..ever so slooooowwwwwly up to the soap box. Sighs…..looks at it. Walks around it. Puts one foot up……and then the other.
Wonders….where to start…..thinking what am I doing here….thinks of stepping down and just walking away. So very nervous…..but puts on my big girl panties, takes a deep breath………here goes nothing……..
Hello! My name is Southern Sass and I am a…..a……sighs again…..I am a……..oh hell, I am an Outsider!
Say what? What did she just say? What the heck is she talking about? I think she has lost her marbles. Rolls eyes…..pretty sure that are some thoughts or actions about right now.
Just like me….you are an Outsider. OK..she has flipped her lid…..she just called us an Outsider too. Wait….is an Outsider….is she insulting us?
Nope. See when it comes to a celeb’s life….we are all just a fan…..and well, an Outsider. We all follow different ones for different reasons. We like or don’t like the things we do. But WE HAVE NO say in those choices. None whatsoever. It is not our life path to travel. We each have our own.
We have NO idea what it is to walk in their shoes. What they have to face or deal with each day on top of just living their life like we do…paying bills, taking care of family, worrying about sick family members or friends, and so forth.
Let’s take Rob & Kristen for instance. It is what ties a lot of us together…..and have built friendships because of our love for the two of them.
Now….these two have had more crap thrown at them more so then any other celeb that I can think of. They don’t dress right, don’t say the right thing, don’t have the right friends, on and on and on and on and on. I lose track sometimes of how everyone puts those two under a microscope almost daily.
Do I like all of their choices….no. Do I get frustrated sometimes….yes. But I have had to stop and think…..and speaking for myself…..I have noticed that sometimes…they are damned if they do and damned if they don’t. They so many people pulling at them from all angles……demanding things……saying that they have to set things straight and so forth. Man….that is heavy. I know that it would make me bonkers.
And I realized….I have lived some life already….I have made some choices & mistakes….and learned from them. That is what growing up is all about. What they are doing…..sigh.
And yet, we are on the outside looking in…..to what they decide to let us see. We don’t get both sides of that coin. It is that other side that we have no clue about. What they are up against, what they are facing, what burdens they have placed upon them. None whatsoever.
It’s like a game show, and you know the answer but the contestant just blanks or freezes. Cause they have cameras on them & a loads of people watching them.We are at home…watching them. Not easy being in those shows as one would think….easier sitting from the seat on our couch.
That is how it is with them. Everyone is watching. Some frustrated….mad….sad….and more. I get it. That is your right to feel those things.
And what makes me sad….it once we get something….it is tossed aside…..when other things are brought to the forefront. Like this pic…..
That is very telling. It is a simple statement…..that speaks volumes. But….enter in something else…and it has now been overlooked & dismissed. This was a rare treat…..told me all I needed to know…but that is me.
Do I like the project…no. But then again….my name isn’t on the bottom line of the contract either. I don’t know what is in it….the ins & outs…no one thing. I know that RK lost a lot of money from how unprofessional she has been. (psst to the ya-whos over yonder…that is the truth…..and don’t give two flying fig newtons about your thoughts on this either.)
Speaking for myself….since the fake-up in 2013….I have remained steadfast. I have seen the countless clues ever so softly sent out to us. Now….is this how I would do things…no. But again….not my life path. I don’t have to like it….just like the choices of other celebs…..and I can turn it off…..even ignore it sometimes….sadly….RK cannot. They live it day in & day out. That said, I have watched them…..listen to what they say, that will tell more then anything else. And I am going to keep on doing that.
This was not easy to write.It was rather hard. As I know everyone is all over the map. But…we are in this together….despite of what our thoughts & opinions are. That much I do know. I know some will disagree…..that is ok…..you are allowed that….to agree to disagree with me. Some may be mad. Some might want to throw tomatoes at me. Others will say she is just nuts….play delusional.
I guess that is it. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.
Turns around……..steps off the soap box….one foot at a time………….
