Demi Moore, whose life has been through a lot of changes over the past seven years, is opening up about the lessons learned and how she realized she had to refocus.
“My relationships are more important, and what I do comes second,” she said at the 2019 InGoop Health Summit in New York City.
The 56-year-old said she also learned not to care what other people think — “What does it matter what anyone thinks?” she mused. “Nothing is that bad.”
Moore said her priorities greatly shifted after she collapsed in her home in 2012 and was later hospitalized.
The mother of three daughters then entered rehab for addiction and an eating disorder.
She said that since that incident she tries to lead by example for her kids – Rumer, 30, Scout, 27, and Tallulah, 25 – but she also learns life lessons from them as well.
“I already think they’re more evolved and more confident and less apologetic for who they are and the space that they’re taking,” she admitted.
One tough lesson she and her daughters face continuously is scrutiny on social media.
Moore explained, “My children were the first generation that were put under the microscope, and my kids are battling huge self-esteem issues because adults in an anonymous forum commented saying they were ugly.”
