Jessica Simpson is marking four years of sobriety. She’s honored the milestone with an “unrecognizable” photo of herself on Instagram.
The pic comes from 2017, depicting a “version” of Simpson that had yet to embark on an important journey of “self discovery.” The star says she knew in that moment it was time to go sober, since she was “exhausted” from numbing her pain. After winning her “internal battle of self respect” and quitting alcohol, Simpson says she’s finally "free."
“The real work that needed to be done in my life was to actually accept failure, pain, brokenness, and self sabotage,” she notes. “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.” Check out the whole post below.
