Port Dickson-SOLITUDEWe live in a very tense society. We are pulled apart... and we all need to learn how to pull ourselves together.... I think that at least part of the answer lies in solitude. ~Helen Hayes
American Idol" judge(Simon) said during an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" .."I get very, very down," Cowell said "Pretty much depression. (But) what I always say is, 'You're taking yourself too seriously, so stop it.' At the same time, you should never put a painted smile on. When you're feeling down, you're feeling down."
"You just become aware that a lot of people depend on you, rely on you, or you're not giving people the time you should be giving them. It's almost like a guilt thing, and that does drain me," he said.
Often seen as arrogant because of his stinging put-downs to aspiring singers, Cowell admitted that he had a strong ego.
"I made some absolutely horrific mistakes. I believed my own ego, believed my own hype, believed my own abilities, and lots of times it came crashing down," he said. "I thought I was absolutely untouchable."
i read this article last month in May at The Sun Newspaper...& this story was drew my intention & interest..when someone like Simon Cowell such a big name & public figure admitted that he is feeling down...nothing wrong with that..& life itself has it UP & DOWN..everyone of us has their very own life story to share with... regardless what our religious background we hv to experience it in order to move forward...myself personally as a Christian that was thought to share our life with others & our community that would uplift our spiritual growth & put our faith on Him..recently i hv chatted with my different faith friend's..(via YM)..& i had asked how the life going on..& he replied''life is has it Up & Down'..eventually i know he is feeling down...Personally,this yr 2010 i was started my new yr resolution "In that Situation"..& times goes by & through self -reflection ,doing life together (in a healthy community)..everything was gone..& the life always knock u down & it up to u whether to surrender or step forward & defeat your GIANTS...
