  1. I knew a politician who was so nice to everyone when he was running for office, but once he was elected he had nothing to do with us.

  2. Minnie Roberts says:

    During my college years, I performed with a singing group. We wanted to make it BIG, however I wasn’t sure I could make a living singing so I began to focus my time on my studies. I often think about if that was the right move for me since I continue to sing on a local level.

  3. Roger Richmond says:

    Unfortunately, I am one of those people. After going to law school at night while working a day job full time for five years, I was able to work in the field of my choice.
    The lack of friends and social life started while I was so busy with work and school. I was never able to put those friendships back together after finishing up law school into a practice.

  4. klye jones says:

    My uncle got a small role on a tv show and he just got a big head. When he came to visit he pumore up in a limo saying he made it but turns out it was a one word role.

  5. Adam Swallow says:

    When I was growing up I had a best friend. His name was Jim, but everyone called him JR. He was the best friend anyone could ask for. we went thought elementary and Jr. High together and were best friends. JR had a way with Tennis. He and I used to play growing up, but in high school he joined the team and became a Star! His instant success drove him away and into the spotlight where he shined like a star. He never looked back after that, and I often saw him walk past me in the hallways at school (surrounded by people). He made it all the way to the state finals his Sr. Year, but lost the last set to someone better than he from the Flint area. JR was never the same after that, after graduation, I heard he dropped out of college and became a pizza delivery man before dying last year of Pneumonia. Whatever success he had, had gotten the best of him.

  6. Linda Noble says:

    I had a friend that is transgender she was born a male and now lives as a female. When she was a male she was very quiet & shy. Now that she is female she is very outgoing & now obnoxious!! She started doing some modeling & public speaking and it has truly went to her head. Me and some friends tried talking to her but she insisted that we were just jealous so at this point we have not talked in two months!!

  7. Norma Hill says:

    My cousin’s husband has been a successful actor of stage and screen. While we were visiting them, he became enraged publicly when someone tried to take advantage of his fame. It was quite embarrasing.

  8. Diana Richmond says:

    I know someone who finally landed a job she had been working for for many years. Once she got it, she became a different person. She had success and left everyone behind.
    We rarely, if ever, see or communicate with each other now.

  9. Jamie Tobias says:

    i have a friend whos trying to start his own rap gruop and thinks he so famus he can get anything he wants for free …movies, food, ect well his group is so little known he doesnt get anything for free

  10. Erin Lyons says:

    A girl from my school went out to the LA area to try and work in television and movies. She started out well, but at some point started to make a bad choice and hang out with certain people. She had a baby which took her away from her career path for awhile. During this time, she was introduced to drugs. About four years after moving out to LA, she unfortunately passed away from a drug overdose, without ever being able to reach her true goals and potential.

  11. Adrienne A says:

    Someone I knew was promoted to a very high level and now spends very little time with their family, choosing instead to spend time with coworkers and clients even during the limited personal time.

  12. Jason says:

    I had a friend who was the star basketball player at my school. He let his success as the star player get to his head and unfortunately wasn’t able to go on further than high school ball due to some outside problems.

  13. Pam Lyons says:

    One of my classmates became an event promoter…since he has become famous he hasn’t been to any of our class reunions and only communicates with certain folks in our graduating class. What a shame
