Wisconsin Anchor Jennifer Livingston's Response to Critics

I have to share with you this moving video about Jennifer Livingston, a Wisconsin television anchor, who received an insulting email from a viewer criticizing her weight.  The reason I find this video powerful is because of how she COPED with the situation.  As you all know, my work revolves around body-image, self-esteem, and coping, so I love when I encounter role models who are sharing their stories with others.

We all encounter setbacks and critics; it is all about how you deal with them.  In Jennifer's case, instead of dwelling on the man's mean words, she PERSEVERED! Jennifer is using this negative experience as a tool for positive change. Way to go!!!! I encourage you to watch Jennifer's powerful response below!

“Do not let your self-worth be defined by bullies. Learn from my experience that the cruel words of one are NOTHING compared to the shouts of many.” – Jennifer Livingston

If you got a mean email like this one, how would YOU cope with it? Thoughts? Would love to hear your feedback.
