Performers are unable to self-heal. They demand and crave the attention of others — but that “look at me and accept me and love me” barter is made in a false exchange and will only die in failure. When young children express a want for fame over substance — we, as a community — must be alarmed and seek to heal the broken psyche.
When a child demands to be the center of attention — we, as a community — must rally around the child’s loneliness and heal the being from within or the child, as an adult, will be left alone without. When a child needs to be known — we, as a community — must foster understanding and teach self-reliance before the child is lost to the stars and the wondering of dreams.
