Celebrities. When we see these people in the public eye, we see the best and worst of them. We see the good choices they make, the cute clothes they wear, and also we see the poor choices they make when it comes to relationships. So when we see our favorite actor or actress make an unhealthy relationship choice, how can we respond? What can we learn from their poor choices?
    Well first of all, we learn that they are human, just like us. But more than that, we are able to see the consequences they have to face when they make a poor relationship choice. This can be most easily seen in a Taylor Swift song. Let’s look at “Dear John” for a second. Taylor Swift had her heart broken by John Mayer because he treated her in a way that she did not appreciate. What consequence did he have to face? Every twelve year old girl now really doesn’t like him because he messed with their role model. So how does that parallel to real life? When a guy treats your girlfriend poorly and the relationship ends, she is going to tell all of her friends and family members about how he treated her and that will give him a bad reputation.
    We’ve seen stars like LeeAnn Rimes and Jessica Simpson date boys who were in another relationship. We’ve heard stories about the scandal of the Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries marriage. When we see these poor decisions, we can watch how their image loses credibility and how that will reflect if we see do those same things. Usually when it comes to celebrities, we respond by doing what they are doing, like when we see that our favorite singer is doing paddleboarding or a super cute actor wears J.Crew and we want to do the same. But when it comes to poor decision making, we should do the opposite and see how the consequence of their decision affects them and would then affect us if we made that same decision.
