    Jane Fonda’s Note To Younger Self Can Empower All Of Us


    Jane Fonda

    Dear Jane,
    What you don’t realize now is that your life will be life a big circle, passing through many dark periods when you will see no future for yourself, when you won’t know who you are and you won’t feel anyone could ever love you.

    Right now, you want to be a boy, preferably a Native American boy, living in the wilderness and passing through it silently, invisibly, with stealth.

    You will be sexually molested at seven, just as your mother was as a child. When you are 12, your mother will commit suicide and the bravery and spunk of your earlier years will seem to fall by the wayside. You’ll come to feel that you have to be perfect if you want to be loved — meaning thin and pretty and appealing and certainly not angry. You’ll have to be a “good girl” to be loved. Living in-authentically like this will lead you to various addictions that will dominate much of your life and energy.

    Your parents are both self-involved, so you will grow up not really knowing what love feels like. What will come to pass is that, through a lot of hard work you will realize that your parents did the best they could. You will learn to remember them with compassion and love and forgiveness and become your own person.

    I wish I could explain to you that the painful things that will make your life challenging and get you in trouble are the things that will ultimately make you strong and compassionate.
    Your biggest strength will be that you won’t shut down and become cynical. You will become an activist. You will discover that doing this will give your life a meaning you don’t think is possible right now. It will be the rent you pay for life.

    You are a late bloomer, so it won’t happen quickly, but your ability to be honest with yourself, your desire to make sense of it all, to learn from your mistakes, will permit you to blossom into life. A woman with courage, imagination and resilience.

    As I read this, I am about to turn 78. And though I know you’ll find this impossible to believe, this is the happiest I have ever been. It was all worth it, the good and the bad.
    So don’t give up. I’m proud of you because you will never settle for less than you think you can attain.

    Love, Jane

    Some of is does resonate with me. I'm saddened that these insights are viewed through a partisan political lens.

    I am not terribly familiar with Jane; how exactly is she a traitor? I looked up her Wikipedia page and couldn't find anything that could be objectively considered "traitorous". Maybe I missed something...

    It's about her visit to Hanoi during the Vietnam War, which some have construed as giving aid and comfort to the enemy. And bestowed the moniker of Hanoi Jane on her.

    It was not just that she visited Hanoi. She took a film crew with her and filmed American Prisoners of War, depicting their treatment at the hands of their North Vietnamese captors as gentle and humane. In truth, the men were treated very poorly by the North Vietnamese -- beaten, tortured, isolated, starved, even killed. Ms. Fonda's propaganda portrayed the North Vietnamese government as benevolent. She certainly gave aid and comfort to the enemy and her actions directly and negatively affected the lives of US service members being held by the North Vietnamese -- hence the label of "traitor" is apt.

    What if she was on some kind of under cover operation and she was actually working as a double agent.

    The government has been know to recruit different performers in the past.

    Well, her father was a great guy as is her brother Peter.

    Empower, schmower. Her dad was a homophobe, her brother a druggie, and she evolved from mindless Hollywood bimbo into ... mindless Hollywood bimbo. She has absolutely nothing to contribute to anyone, so it's not surprising to see her writing to herself, in however tardy a fashion.

    Ofcourse the right wing is gonna attack her for what she did. Atleast she had the guts to tell the american public what the vietnam war was about.
    Only the insane will say that america's involvement in vietnam was a "good thing".
    It was a total total mess.
    So many american soldiers killed and many more screwed up from surviving.
    Lets not talk about all the orange gunk
    America sprayed over there..the vietnamese are still suing the american government and almost every american soldier that breathed or touched that shit has died from cancer.

    I think it's safe to say that Jane Fonda has accomplished much more in her time than you have you walking tub of lard
