Britney took to Instagram on Wednesday, February 16, to reveal she received a letter from Democratic U.S. lawmakers Charlie Crist of Florida and Eric Swalwell of California, inviting her to meet with them at Congress to share her story.

The Princess of Pop admitted she was flattered when she first got the letter a few months ago, but at the time, she wasn't "nearly at the healing stage I'm in now."

In the letter, the Congressmen applauded the singer and her attorney, Mathew Rosengart, for their "historic victories." They said they were "elated" when her father, Jamie Spears, was suspended from the conservatorship in September before it was terminated two months later.

"There is no doubt that your story will empower countless others outside the millions that are already inspired by your and your art," the letter read. "Please know that you have absolutely no obligation to do anything more but fight for yourself, but if you are willing, we would appreciate learning more about the emotional and financial turmoil you faced within the conservatorship system."
