Many celebrities can find it difficult to deal with their fans. Here are some suggestions on how celebrities can manage the stresses and anxieties of making your fans happy.
The most important thing to do is to know where you stand on a certain issue. Ask yourself if you are willing to do something that your fans want you do. Think about it and determine for yourself where you stand on a certain task or issue. Ask yourself if it is the right thing to do and if it is legal. Determine what you want to do.
Once you know where you stand, you need to communicate this to your fans and other people your intentions. Explain to them that you do not want to do what it is they are asking for you to do. Give them reasons on why you feel this way. Be willing to answer their questions so they understand where you are coming from.
Be firm in your decision and show confidence. Some of your fans will continue to argue with you and this is where you need to show that you mean business. Do not give in to their arguments. Do what is right and stand with your decision. This can be tough but remind them that you do not feel comfortable in doing a certain task.
Be happy with who you are. You do not need to impress members of the media and your fans to have a good time or to have friends. Find people who will accept you for who you are. It is better to be alone than to be with people who pretend to like you.
Doing what is best for you will save you a lot of trouble in the long run. It is better to play it safe than to be sorry.
There will always be people who will disagree with you. A celebrity needs to understand that they need to live their own life instead of trying to please everybody.
