Even though we know, deep down in our souls (and with our critical little brains) that celebrities are "just like us" and don't actually have perfect rich people lives, it's easy to forget when you're scrolling through the highlight reel of social media.
The pressing feelings of FOMO and inadequacy can multiply around New Years, when celebrities and peers alike post lengthy reflections on their accomplishments and plans for the coming year.
While it can be a genuinely lovely tradition to share pride over accomplishments (if we don't celebrate ourselves - who will?!) reading honest anecdotes about failure can be far more inspiring, particularly when it comes from successful artists we look up to. After all, failure is an inevitable stepping stone towards any growth, so the more normalized it becomes, the more beneficial for everyone.
