You've Got the Power

You've Got the Power

I have a psychologist friend and recently she told me about a female client of hers in a crappy relationship, without disclosing any names of course. They worked on the client's self esteem a lot. Then the client quit therapy, used the dough to hire a personal trainer and got in shape. She got physically strong. That made her feel emotionally strong. Then she dumped the chump.

I couldn't help thinking of this story when I heard about Britney. She appeared on Letterman, showing off her new body. Looking good. The next day - BAM - she filed for divorce. Now I am not claiming to understand what goes on in Britney's mind. But from the outside, it seems like there has got to be some correlation.

I am reading this tale with my inspirational glasses on. We all know there is a link between body image and self esteem. So to those of you who are like Britney and working on taking back your life (and body), I say: YOU GO GIRL!

Getting fit definitely helps one's emotional and mental state. I know a few people who've worked out like mad after a break-up and came away feeling much better about themselves in the end.

Does anyone else think she looks better than ever right now? I think she is "no longer a girl and finally a woman!" :)
