Arash’s letter “ME , myself and I” letter to my mother.


Mommy, there’s something I need to tell you. It’s, it’s hard for me to say. The last thing I want to do is disappoint you. You’re so kind and supportive of me. I love you so much. I’m just going to say it. No matter how hard it is for me to admit, because I love my life. But hon-honestly sometimes wish I wasn’t famous!

Acting is an amazing thing. Most people would love to be me. It just tires me out so much. Starting at seven– I don’t think that was meant to be my path. I had an idea when I was younger, and you were amazing to let me follow it. But I was seven now im thirty nime! I didn’t know all of the pressure that it would be. Again, the last thing I want to do is disappoint you. You’re my role model, my hero, my everything.

Sometimes I’m scared I won’t be enough like you when I grow up. It’s just that I feel so insecure and overwhelmed. People always stopping and staring. Taking pictures of me, invading my privacy. Not feeling comfortable in my own skin. I just want me, myself and I. Not surrounded by paparazzi and obsessive fans. Sometimes I just wish for a normal life! I know that sounds selfish and entittled, I mean, I have everything. Money, designer clothes, loving family. I shouldn’t ask for more. But, I’m technically asking for less.

I love all the fun trips and traveling, and this loving and kind family, I just don’t think a thirty- nine-year-old man should be held to such high expectations. I love you.

Thank you for always being there for me. I hope you understand.
