Idols

It’s impossible not to look up to someone or something, otherwise, it would be very hard to have an idea of who you want to become. Idols give us a goal to strive for in the face of our reality, they are the forerunners of our future selves. However, idolatry can blind aspirations as much as it may encourage them. Looking up to too many different figures will result in an identity that contradicts itself.
