I think most of us have at least a few people that we find inspiring. Based on this we end up thinking that we like a person when in reality we just like what they do.
Listening to the songs a person sings or watching the tvs and movies that they star in is not the same as knowing them. You can’t get to know a person based on them performing and pretending to be someone else.
This is why people end up having a rude awakening when they discover traits that they don’t like in an actor, singer, influencer or presenter.
You end up feeling disappointed as if your relationships to these people are personal when they actually have no idea who you are.
