Jessica Simpson, a Hollywood star, is opening up about her past struggles with alcohol addiction and how she became sober.
On Instagram, the actor posted a throwback photo of herself that was almost unrecognisable, along with an in-depth note about her sobriety journey
“This person in the early morning of Nov 1, 2017 is an unrecognizable version of myself. I had so much self-discovery to unlock and explore,” she wrote.
“I knew in this very moment I would allow myself to take back my light, show victory over my internal battle of self-respect, and brave this world with piercing clarity,” she went on to say.
“Personally, to do this I needed to stop drinking alcohol because it kept my mind and heart circling in the same direction and quite honestly I was exhausted. I wanted to feel the pain so I could carry it like a badge of honor,” she shared.
“I wanted to live as a leader does and break cycles to advance forward- never looking back with regret and remorse over any choice I have made and would make for the rest of my time here within this beautiful world.”
“There is so much stigma around the word alcoholism or the label of an alcoholic,” and she realized that “The real work that needed to be done in my life was to actually accept failure, pain, brokenness, and self-sabotage.”
“The drinking wasn’t the issue. I was. I didn’t love myself. I didn’t respect my own power. Today I do. I have made nice with the fears and I have accepted the parts of my life that are just sad. I own my personal power with soulful courage. I am wildly honest and comfortably open. I am free,” she said at the end of her post.
