Pop star Britney Spears spent Saturday night reflecting on what it's like to be single amid her highly publicized divorce from actor Sam Asghari.

The two met on the set of her "Slumber Party" music video in 2016 and tied the knot in June 2022, only a few months after her controversial 13-year conservatorship ended in November 2021. However, on August 16, 2023, the "Special Ops: Lioness" actor filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.

The "Toxic" singer began her post by writing, "It's so weird being single … I've had a lot of time to really look back with all the good and bad … I've realized I don't talk to myself that nicely at all … I'm easily manipulated and I wear my heart on my sleeve … But I'm definitely changing all that … I have to make time to stop and look around to re-evaluate myself and say is this good for me ??? I like a routine and I usually do the same thing every day …. I'm honestly bored but I'm also scared of a lot of things … The way I live my life is mine ... I've had so many people interfere with that … But to know it’s ok to be selfish with my life and enjoy it is amazing !!!"

I'm honestly not even sure why I'm writing this nonsense !!!??" she concluded, adding, Oh this picture ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️."

People who have strong-willed lives have a sixth sense in the manner of creating their own lives and destiny !!!" she continued. "It’s contagious to be with people who can enlighten you and bring us to higher grounds !!!"

"I believe it’s important to be around those types of people !!! There’s a sense of safety and knowing in being with such !!! I call them wise souls !!! Believe it or not I think children are more in tune with their sixth sense than we know !!! I mean who are we kidding !!!
