Britney Spears, Priorities and Life Lessons - Blog Post

Recommended Posts

Hi my name is Andy.

 

Have been a casual reader of these forums for many years but I have recently started an online Blog focussed on promoting a more active approach to mental health and have written a piece that I think the Britney community would appreciate.

 

To give you an idea of my story without going in to masses of detail - I was diagnosed with a mental health condition earlier this year that resulted in me having daily seizures. Initially mistaken for Epilepsy, this was eventually diagnosed as N.E.A.D which I was experiencing due to an intolerable level of stress, anxiety and psychological trauma. I’ve now started sharing some of my story and thoughts surrounding mental health, the attached stigma, and encouraging others to be more open and proactive about their struggles with their thoughts. I’m a massive advocate for the benefits regular exercise can have on both your physical and mental wellbeing - which my reason for setting up these pages online.

Anyway... enough about me! I wanted to share the below post I wrote earlier this week that centralised around the life of Britney Spears and my own reflections on generalised perceptions of mental health, the media and how I can relate to a lot of the adjustments Britney has subsequently made to her life and career after a difficult chapter in her own life. In my eyes, that period is only a small part of her story and legacy - yet is widely thought of as one of the most defining parts of her career which I find so sad.

 

In this post, I talk about Britney’s recent decision to put her family first, how much respect I have for her as a person.. and how it’s a shame that this selfless act of prioritising family over a multi-million dollar contract does not seem to warrant the same level of media attention as her infamous troubles times. In my opinion this act says far more for her character than that “difficult time” ever could.

 

Please take time to read and share if you like.

Great post! It's true they bring you up only to tear you down. The world doesn't want to see people overcome and succeed as much as they like to claim. Britney is a survivor, inspiration, and one of the rare true souls in the entertainment business. Her decisions to put her family first are admirable and I love her more for it.
