[Blind Gossip] While some people think that fame will make them happy, there are some who are famous who are miserable.
This story was posted on a public board by someone claiming to be a cast member of a TV series. We have no way of validating the veracity of their statement. We have left their story unedited.
[Reddit] If I revealed my name I would be recognized immediately.
People terrify me. Friends are used as steps to climb the social ladder. People will do anything, and I mean ANYTHING to keep their status.
As a kid, I never went to public school. I never took a school bus, I never bought my own car, paid my own rent, cellphone bills, I don’t cook my own food.
I taught myself how to ride a bike, play sports, pump my own gas, talk to guys, I don’t think there’s anything I’ve been taught aside from how to be a living doll.
I’m a huge wilderness and adrenaline junkie. I drive up the PCH, find a desolate place and sleep in my car’s backseat for days. I hike, get lost, hunt, fish, forage, and connect with the environment. I don’t tell anyone my whereabouts. I bring a stove, rifle, knife, water, gas, all necessary survival tools. For a while I forget about all the bullshit and I start crying.
PCH is the Pacific Coast Highway, a scenic road that runs the entire length of the United States western seaboard.
I’m so fucking miserable. So many times I’ve thought of blowing myself away in my car in the middle of nowhere.
You’d hear about it. They’d say I wasn’t a troubled kid. Good school, bright future, ambitious goals. Kind, fun, adventurous. The whole bit.
What they wouldn’t tell you is the pain I feel everyday.
I’m trapped in a TV series. My whole life has been documented. It’s not fun. It’s a trap.
You don’t want this. I wish I could talk to people without them using me. I wish I could make real connections.
