Elin Nordegren.. wow. I obviously only know her through the media and it's hard to believe even a tiny percent of it however, the way she has handled herself through such an excruciating time in her life is beyond my imagination. Honestly, she is such a role model in my eyes. I have been through similar problems (not anywhere near the extent she has) and I can't put myself in her shoes even for a second. When I read some of her interview with People, I was in disbelief at her outlook. She has chosen to stay out of the media through all the slams and heartache she has heard about herself, even if it was to give herself a little relief from what her heart was facing. I am sure she heard story after story of Tiger's transgressions and still to this day she hasn't said anything negative about her ex husband, besides just the facts. That takes a strong woman. And through all of this what baffles me the most is she is one of the most wealthy people in the world and as the nightmare has entered her life, she has been taking night classes and is in pursuit of her a psychology degree. She is the definition of dignity. She is one of the most beautiful women in the world, and in my eyes, just as beautiful on the inside. Way to handle yourself .. if she has gotten through this, she can get through anything! I am grateful there are women like this in the world, so that when us women have been to the most low place by being cheated on, we can watch women like Elin and remind ourselves that if she can do it, so can we.
