What’s young woman to do when all she has done is work her young life, and her family life is the epitome of dysfunction in Hollywood? Oprah’s latest interview is with starlet Lindsay Lohan and what she is addicted to, are the rehab situations just a means to make jail time less so, or is she really addressing her issues at home?
Is Lohan on the road to recovery of addicted to stress and crisis
Lohan will always have a job, people really do adore her. Can she develop a reputation of reliability and calm? The actress is 27 and it’s not pretty any longer to see an older woman still “acting out” as if she were a young teen still living at home. Just like the ‘Ironman’ actor Robert Downey Juinor, sooner or later growing up has to become a part of your lifestyle. A young adult and their addictive behaviors are one thing people consider it a ‘right of passage’ as a way of finding yourself and your own beliefs and what you stand for in the world. But behaving like an 18 or 19-year-old in your thirties and forties is no longer appealing or cute.
Can The Lindsay be famous in her own right, without the backdrop of her parents in tow
This one is yet to be seen. I wouldn’t call Lindsay on Oprah as “speaking out for the first time.” Lohan on Letterman was more the first time she allowed an interview to get up close and personal, while at the same time poking fun of her image.
Is Lohan her own worst enemy, clueless
Everyone knows someone like that, meaning their own actions seem to sabatoge their life. They want a raise at work but yet they are chronically late. They want to be take seriously yet they dress like a 12-year-old. The person behaving this way is usually clueless about their very own behavior, or at least what is apparent to us on the outside hasn’t occurred to them on the inside. The other part of that behavior can be Lindsay may be surrounded by nothing but ‘yes men,’ people who do her bidding and say “it’s okay and fine or anything you want” because she is the star. What she needs is honesty, did David Letterman give her some form of it by asking the hard questions?
What does it mean
It means Lindsay Lohan has been in denial. She has made the ‘enemy ‘ statement about herself this time. It’s human nature to not see the forest for the trees or to spend too much time thinking and brooding about what to do instead of actually doing something about it. Rather than focus on what’s wrong, focus and visualize on a solution. See, feel and smell the details making it come to life. Imagining a good outcome will set the field in motion.
What did you do right today
When you are being bombarded by constant criticism it’s tough to see things in a different light, instead while you are washing your face before bedtime, ask, “What did I really accomplish and get done today, the answer is always more than you think.
Set the ball in motion. Putting things off undermines getting things done. When it seems overwhelming try doing just one small task at a time instead of focusing on the really big picture. Break it down into smaller easier to manage goals.
