Are You Obsessed With Celebrities?
Why obsessions with celebrities can be unhealthy and can be a sign of self-doubt.

Dear Dr. Romance:

Do I have an unhealthy celebrity obsession? I really need answers and help! I feel this is still unresolved? Does anyone else have an obsession with a particular celebrity to the degree that you wanna look, act, talk, dress and live like them. I do, I wanna look like her in photos if I dont I'm upset, I live like her as in if she does something then I do it, if she does her hair in a certain way I copy it that's how obsessed I am with looking like her. I'm asking if anyone else does this and I'm asking if this is uhhealthy and what should I do about it??

 

Dear Reader:

This is a self-esteem issue. You don't feel good enough about yourself, so you're trying to feel better by copying someone else. You need to repair your relationship with yourself. "True Beauty: Honor the God/Goddess Within You" will help you begin to reevaluate what attractiveness and self-worth are. It Ends With You: Grow Up and Out of Dysfunction helps you go through an in-depth process to heal your inner relationship and overcome the pain of the past.
