The New Paris Hilton Documentary Proves Besides Money, Everyone Has Demons
Everyone is in bed, I'm frustrated because the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Denver Nuggets and Paris Hilton is trending. Paris Hilton?
I started clicking through and remember seeing things online regarding Paris but didn't pay much attention. Well, Paris Hilton has a documentary out and it's shocking. Sad.
I remember watching Hilton on the Simple Life with Nicole Richie which was forever ago as they played rich brats. I guess if you're hating because you're not rich it's just one of those things. Well, It's 12:30 a.m. and I'm captivated watching the sad woman tell her story for the first time. You might think she was just a spoiled brat and maybe some of those things come with the territory. That's not was this is.
In this special I guess I never knew how much this girl was going through. Paris may have been the first influencer when you really think about it and Kim Kardashian gives her that credit. Fast forward through all that and Paris is haunted by the things that happened to her when she was a child. Can you imaging having the same nightmare every night that haunts you? She has them based on what happened as a child and it was very dramatic. If you can look beyond the fame and look at her as a human, you feel sorry for her.
I'm not saying that Paris Hilton lives a terrible life and we should send flowers. I'm just acknowledging that everyone goes through something and we don't see that side of sometimes. Yet we crucify them based upon a photo or video we come across that was never given to us with permission. We basically put them in the casket and let everyone join in pull pieces apart.
I only got halfway through and this is the first time we've seen this side of Paris. It's worth the view and very well put together. You get a secret look into her life and might even tear up as she cries every night scared to sleep. We are mean people sometimes and it reminded me that it's important to be careful. Less judgment and more compassion. The person you work next to might be a horrible person this week and therefore you trash them. Most of the time a story lives behind the mask.
There is a Paris Hilton next to all of us. It's important we stand up and check in with them. So many people don't know how to ask for help. Sometimes is just takes a simple, "Hey, how are you today?"
You don't have to like her but nobody wants to read about her in a tragic breaking news alert. I'm writing this in hopes that maybe you get help or reach out to someone else that needs it. The worst thing for someone is to feel alone with nobody to unload that weight on. You might think it's easy, but it's not. We're going through a pandemic where everyone can use some extra kindness. Life is hard enough when things are great. If you get a chance this might be something you enjoy and in some sort of way, you might relate.
