Rumer Willis is grateful for many things.
After celebrating being four years alcohol-free, the actress posted her inspiring post on Instagram on New Year’s Eve, wishing all her fans a happy holiday.
“4 years sober today!!!” Willis tweeted, with an accompanying photograph of her celebrating the milestone. “I am so thankful for putting myself above any need for distraction or numbing out. Especially in this last year, when so much has happened not only for me, but for the world. I feel immense gratitude that even though I have no escape from the feelings that come up, no matter how hard or painful they may be, I do my best to live through them and come out the other side.”
The 32-year-old confirmed that 2020 is a tough year, like many others. Yet she continued to retain her resolve despite challenging circumstances.
“This year has brought so many challenges, but I know that I love myself and show myself that I am able to get through anything because I choose to face the challenge each time,” she wrote, before giving hope to those struggling with sobriety. “For anyone who is struggling with this or has a desire to get sober, please know that it is not a one size fits all, it is one day at a time. I don’t have all the answers, I just know what has worked for me, but I’m always here to give support or just listen.”
Willis has talked of her recent recovery from alcohol abuse. Recently she turned her life around and was able to stay sober for six months.
“I’ll be the first to say I’m not perfect and I mess up sometimes and every once in a while I get it right, but I wanted to share this because I’m really proud of myself,” she wrote at the time. Yesterday I marked 6 months of sobriety. After years of progression, I can honestly say I’ve never been more proud of myself. Thank you all for the love and encouragement and remember to be gentle with yourself.
Willis has found herself busy during quarantine and has appeared on a talk show with her famous father, Bruce Willis.
“Even my dad puts pressure on me,” “During quarantine, he said, “I want you to provide a son in order to provide male energy to this party,” he said. “It’s definitely a lot of people,” he said. He has five daughters and my mother and stepmother. There’s just a lot of female energy.”
“But even if I had a son, I guarantee you that my father would somehow try to come and kidnap him, kidnap the kid, try to take him away,” joked Willis, who has been linked to Hammer. “But it’s important to wait. I think it’s so important not to rush into it and let it be about lust or about, you know, that immediate connection and then build a real foundation.”
