Like so many child stars, Lindsay Lohan grew up in the spotlight and seems to have melted in the spotlight. I have not been following Lindsay's life closely like I follow music, but I see her name a lot in the celebrity columns and I feel like putting my two cents in. Or as a BlogDumps member would say, I'm putting my two thoughts in for Tuesday.
If I were her friend, this is what I would want to tell her.
I understand, Lilo, life is hard. We all go through those awful growing pains. Unfortunately when you're a celebrity, surrounded by a lot of people who "want" to be your friend, raised by two opposites who could not keep it together in more ways than one, and the media trying to make every little thing you do public knowledge, those growing pains can even harder to deal with. Besides that, the public eye can be very, very scrutinizing.
It kinda saddens me that you're one of a few celebrities who actually had intellectual potential but chose to give up on it. From what I read about your performance in school before you became home-schooled, you were really doing well in science and mathematics. So if you decided to leave showbiz, you probably could've succeeded in an academic field. But something in your life seemed to make it hard for you to stay on one path. It's like you were looking for something else - something to make you happy and fill a void in your life. And that's why you made so many wrong turns in your life. You just couldn't find what you were looking for.
All that partying, drinking, and drug abuse is taking its toll on your once youthful and healthy body. I'm sure there are people out there who really care for you and want to see you get your life back in order just like Britney Spears is trying to do. And look at Robert Downey Jr.! Man, he has really turned his life around after that self-destructive spiral.
It's not too late, LiLo...you're getting there. But you have to learn to grow up - unlike perhaps many people close to you have failed to do. You can do it as long as you stay strong. If you have to get yourself away from the media for awhile, you should do it. It may give you a chance to clear your head, your thoughts, your emotions...and learn to truly love yourself. That's one of the secrets to growing up. Love yourself and others will love you, too.
