If you have a problem that you cannot solve, and issue that you cannot handle, then get it out in the open - even a little thing can eat away at you if you leave it to fester.2. Expect a celebrity** to help. His words might speak to you, resonate with your situation, but they were written for a million people, not just you. You will not be the only fan trying to get in touch, and the best you can really expect is enough of his time to shake a hand or sign an autograph.If you have a real problem, in real life, talk to a real person. If you do not yet feel able to talk to family or friends about your problem, the very worst thing you can do is talk to a celebrity who has no idea you even exist. Talk to a doctor, a counsellor, a teacher, or even call a crisis line*.You're new here, and haven't explored the full potential of the site - scroll to the top of the page, and type something, anything, into the search box at the very top of the page.
