From the moment we are born, we are judged and therefore we push ourselves to fit a certain mold that we think society expects us to fill. We think we are looked down upon if we are different, whether it be because of the color of our skin, the amount of money we have or our beliefs, but we learn as we grow that those differences are actually what make us special, unique. Sometimes it takes us longer than usual to learn that lesson. We think we are hated and ridiculed when we are not. But during that awful time, we latch onto something to keep us balanced and these things may turn into obsessions. People say that it is weird, wrong and unhealthy. I say otherwise. I say that these obsessions are what keep us balanced and allow us to remain who we are until we one day learn that lesson. Yet we don’t let go of them, because these obsessions, whether they may be celebrities, TV shows, movies or books, are now a part of who we are. They keep us sane when we are on the edge of breaking.
My obsession is Anna Kendrick. She is talented (both as an actor an singer), beautiful, hilarious, relatable, adorable and down-to-earth. I am so thankful for her.
