SO SAD: It’s With Heavy Heart We Announce The Passing Away Of Top talented ”caitlin” After…

I’m feeling a little sad and lacking in understanding this morning.

It’s the big questions I’m wondering about:

How to live life, what’s important, whether ambition to be the best is fulfilling or hollow.

And this really complex conundrum: should we be more or less selfish in our career pursuits?

There’s a young woman out there you’ve all heard of, Caitlin Clark, who is a superstar, incredibly famous, and these questions are now confronting her.

It’s all happening too fast for any of us to process including her.

One day you’re a high school star at Dowling Catholic School in Iowa.

Four years later you have security guards wherever you go to protect you from the tens of thousands of people who want your autograph, to touch you, to say they were in the presence of an incredibly talented basketball player who suddenly is a millionaire and sponsored by some of the biggest brands in the world. You’re like Taylor Swift.

I’m feeling this way after reading an uncommonly in-depth profile about what it’s been like being Clark these past few unusual years.

The article was written by Wright Thompson Caitlin Clark and Iowa find peace in the process – ESPN.

Her situation is a lot to contemplate. It makes us wonder if becoming great at what you do is all worth it.

It makes me realize that fame and fortune aren’t automatic recipes for happiness and fulfillment.

The author unmasked what it’s really like to be Caitlin Clark beyond all the superficialities such as scoring records and Big Ten championships.

Who is this person, truly? What motivates her? Why is she so driven? What worries her? What is all this fame doing to her mind and heart?

In this article you find answers to all of this. It’s a personal journey of psychological ups and downs, human struggle, an odd way to live a life being obsessed with being a great basketball player.
