Since Bruce Willis announced he was retiring from acting in April after being diagnosed with aphasia, his life has undergone a radical change.
The disorder impacts a person’s speech, as well as how they write and understand both spoken and written language.
As a result, Willis has stepped back from filming, travelling, interviews and public appearances.
He now lives far away from that world with his family.
His wife Emma Heming, with whom he’s been married for 13 years, takes care of him and his two daughters, Mabel Ray and Evelyn Penn, in their home far from the city.
He helps her plant flowers and paint fences, while she’s been seen dancing with their daughters, making it clear that they’re happy despite Bruce’s health problems.
During an interview with The Bump, Heming talked about the importance of not forgetting yourself even in the difficult times.
Heming’s strength in the face of adversity
“When you take too much care of someone, you end up not taking care of yourself,” she said.
“That stopped me in my tracks and really made me react.
“We have to spend more time on our own basic needs.”
That’s exactly what she’s doing, and what she’s shown on social media.
She carries out her tasks daily, which serves as an example for those living in as similar situation.
