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!
