Best is not an option

Best is not an option

Being compared

Many people want to be loved and in a lot of minds, being loved = being the best. The best at anything even the smallest of things. Humans crave attention and compliments and being the best is the easiest way of getting that. But it’s not real. Not everyone will think you’re the best or will like you.

Best is not an option” is all about not being the best. It’s about how no one/nothing is the best. You might be considered the “best” at that time but what happens when people start calling a new younger person “the new you?” This happens a lot, especially in Hollywood. Leonardo Dicaprio knows what I’m talking about. The extremely talented actor Timothée Chalamet is being called “the new Leonardo Dicaprio” which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but it’s like being compared to your older more experienced sibling. Like a fear that one bad thing or a new person will take that place.

Personally, I would love to be compared to Dicaprio if I were an actor. He’s successful, respected, and talented but it’s a large shoe to fit. If Dicaprio gets lost in history or isn’t considered “the best” then where does Chalamet fit in? Will he be lost also and “not the best”? If you’d like to find out the answer to this question come next week to find out.
