Day 169 – TimeOut

This has no relevance to the picture or the day or photography really, only my twitter-stalking habit and therefore I ask the question, am I the only one who kinda feels sorry for Lindsay Lohan???

It’s a funny one because obviously we don’t know anything about her apart from what the media is spinning out. What is for certain though, from the prison sentence handed to her, she has a problem with drugs and alcohol and it seems she is quite adequate on blaming other people.

Seriously though, tell me you don’t know people in the same position, whether it be on a lesser scale or not even to do with drugs or alcohol. They are just an easy and accessible option for someone who is wealthy and has time to indulge and become addicted. How many people you know would spend their lives out partying if they had the money and friends to do it with? If you were famous and that environment constantly had people boosting your ego? And if you got into that spiral at all, and especially from a young age, it would be basically all you knew, then how the hell does one get out of it?

It’s so easy to judge, and Joan Rivers certainly has taken that option along with half of ‘Twitter-land’ this morning (I’m actually updating this on the day she went to prison). A stem of tweets from Joan last week were directed in Lindsay’s direction, most of which I thought were just horrible unnecessary attacks that certainly won’t help someone get out of the dark hole that has become their life. Why would you do it?

To paraphrase a comic genius, I’m not in the habit of repeating myself but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there’s a great phrase that tells us to be extra nice to people, everyone fights their own battles. Of course it doesn’t always work but we’d be a lot better off if more people took head to it.
