Britney Teaches Us How To Bounce Back

Britney Spears owned the pop scene in the late 1990s and early 2000s. She gave us unforgettable hits like Baby One More Time, Oops! ... I Did It Again, and Toxic. Spears made it so big that she performed in the 2001 Super Bowl Halftime Show. But in 2005 things started to change, as the star became a controversial topic.

In February 2005 the award-winning star was banned from the Oscars along with Paris Hilton and Pamela Anderson. The committee wanted to keep the event as high class as possible and the ladies did not meet the status quo at the time. Talk about a burn, right?

After this, a turmoil of things happened that brought her career to an all-time low. It was in 2006 that her parenting skills were questioned after Spears was caught driving with her son on her lap. She was also questioned by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services after her son falls out of his high chair at home. By 2007 she divorces her husband Kevin Federline and checks into a rehab facility, which she checks out of the following day.

Then she really left people shocked when she shaves her hair off in an LA hair salon. Spears went through so much within the next year. She lost physical custody of her kids for some time, got her visitation rights suspended and was admitted into a psych ward.

Hitting rock bottom is hard, she lost so much but with determination, she bounced back. She healed herself for the sake of her kids and her career. She dropped the hit Womanizer, released the album Circus, became an X Factor and kept working on recovering her career. Today if you did not know who Britney Spears was 13 years ago, you would think she was a regular pop star mom trying to live her best life and raise her kids. This Mississippi native teaches, no matter how low we might feel or be in life the only option is to keep moving forward. Spears is the living version of the metaphor,

"There's light at the end of the tunnel."
