Emma Heming is feeling gloom and doom Amid the health condition of Bruce
The 47-year-old said about her situation, “I think its so important for us to break up our thinking which can feel, for me very much, like gloom and doom. I know it looks like I’m out, living my best life. I have to make a conscious effort every single day to live the best life I can.”
Moreover, the actress who shares two daughters Mabel, 11, and Evelyn, 9 with the Die Hard actor said of the way which keeps her motivated. “I do that for myself—I do that for our two children and Bruce,” the mother of two continued, “who would not want me to live any other way. So I don’t want it to be misconstrued that I am good because I am not. I am not good.”
She also said, “I am just doing the best that I can always. Your pictures are making me happy. I just want you to take a moment out of your day to break it up for a minute to just look for something beautiful.”
Emma emotionally concluded her message by saying, “I have to put my best foot forward for myself and the sake of my family. Again, when we are not looking after ourselves we cannot look after anyone that we love. So, it is really important and, like I said, this is a conscious effort.”
Moreover, she captioned the video, “This is a care partner PSA. My message is simple. When we are not looking after ourselves, we are no good to the people we love who we want to show up for and take care of. I don’t have this down to a fine science either, but I try. It’s an affirmation I use daily, so it’s kept in the forefront of my mind. Your pictures, words of support and love for me and my family were felt. Honestly, thank you, it helps.”
