Rumer Willis is getting real about her anxiety levels. The 32-year-old daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis shared an update on IG Stories. “Wanted to share something vulnerable because I think it is important to remember there are many sides to everyone and so much we don't see outside of the lens of social media,” Rumer captioned a video of herself staring at the camera with a filter of tears coming out of her eyes. “I have been dealing with bad anxiety since yesterday, but working on learning how to self soothe.”
The Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood star said that sometimes her anxiety can get so bad that “I feel like I'm dying, I get nauseous and my heart won't slow down.”
“It sometimes feels like a force so much bigger than me has taken over the control panel in my brain,” she shared. “But I realized the worst thing I can do is try to fight against it or be resistant to it. I have to catch myself when I find myself focusing on just wishing it was somehow different.”
Part of her healing process is being real about it. “So here I am, sitting here feeling like I'm gonna melt, even though I know I won't and just trying to lean into the discomfort as scary and painful as that is.”
Willis is among many celebs who have opened up about anxiety in a bid to change the public perception of the perfect Hollywood life.
Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande and Zayn Malik have also shared their stories.
