Save Her from Herself

Britney Spears
The evolution of...

Feeling: Contemplative

In honour of one of the most influential artists of our time- I dedicate this post, in self reflection, to Britney Spears.

Britney Spears- Mona Lisa

Ladies and Gentlemen, I've got a little story to tell
About Mona Lisa, and how she suddenly fell.
See everyone knew her, they knew her oh so well.
Now I am taking over, to release her from her spell.

She's unforgettable
She was a legend though
It's kind of pitiful that she's gone
It's kind of incredible she's so unpredictable
It's time to let her go, cause she's gone, cause she's gone, cause she's gone.

She was taken under, drowning in her sea
Running like an angel, she was crying but could not see
Now see everybody's watching, as she starts to fall......

As odd as it may seem, I parallel with the pop princess.

"Knowing your calling from a young age, having that great drive, that intense fire and motivation; the ambition to push yourself harder for something greater & greater."

That is why I am completely convinced that she is suffering from the same thing I did; a complete burn-out. She lived her life to perform, for the spotlight, the stage. Whereas I had completely dedicated myself to books, grades, awards-- academics.

Things were going very well for her, but 2001 would be the year that would unravel her spirits. The break-up from her first love, Justin, proved to be more trying than anyone could imagine. At first, she rebounded with In the Zone. But you could clearly see that her motivation was counter-productive. Then came the 55 hour marriage, the marriage to Federline, the kids, the partying, living a life that was not truly fulfilling.

*She found herself at a time in her life where the world would not stop to let you breathe. It was always an On-the-go kind of lifestyle. And she became overwhelmed. Too high to let it all go down, she rolled with the punches and pushed forward. Doing things that satisfied her need of reassurance. She bit off more than she could chew. Everything came too fast, too suddenly- with no break inbetween. The pressures, the stress, no time to deal with the negative. Rather, let it pile up under that rug in the corner.

Smiles on the outside, torn within. But still, she charges on. It is the motivation that drives her. The perfectionist within. Wanting you to keep going. Living like this keeps a constant in her life. Really, all that she's ever known.

I just hope that everyone realizes that she needs to be saved, & the only person that can save Britney, is Britney..

How do I know?

I saved me from myself. I just hope Britney can do the same.
