TheBBC have Professor Cary Cooper, a psychology professor at Lancaster University, saying that Spears’ recent behaviour is a “call for help”. “She’s saying: ‘I’m very confused, I’m not in control of myself at the moment, I need a fresh start, I need help.'”
In many ways she sounds like she is struggling with her identity and her role in the same way that many of the young people I work with do. Let’s just hope that she gets the right support around her, and manages to keep out of the press for a while.
“A map on the envelope had a dot drawn in north Cornwall and an arrow saying “Somewhere Here”. Postal workers in Bude, north Cornwall managed to pinpoint the right address and deliver the letter. The letter to Peter O’Leary, was from a long-lost work colleague who failed to enclose his own address so Mr O’Leary cannot write back. Bude’s delivery office manager Andrew Lake said post workers worked out from the map the intended address was in Bude and then asked each other if anyone recognised the name Peter O’Leary. Postman Eric Seymour realised Mr O’Leary lived on his round and said the customer was astounded when he handed over the letter.”
How silly that the colleague didn’t bother to put his own address in the letter for Mr O’Leary.
