Bruce Willis' wife, Emma Heming Willis, is realizing that she can't devote her entire life to helping his.
On Tuesday, June 7, Emma stressed the importance of self care on her Instagram Story.
"When you put everyone's needs above your own, no one wins," she wrote. "I don't do this perfectly but I really am trying so I can be the best I can be for the people I love and adore."
Emma's message comes more than two months after it was announced that the "Pulp Fiction" star was retiring due to Aphasia, a condition that affects a person's ability to communicate — to speak, write and understand language.
"Our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities," his family said in a statement on March 30, just days after Bruce celebrated his 67th birthday. "As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him."
Emma, who shares two children with the beloved actor, recently said she was struggling with her husband's health.
"I put my family's needs above my own, which I found does not make me any kind of hero," she told The Bump last month. "That amount of care for everyone else within my household had taken a toll on my mental health and overall health, and it served no one in my family."
She also recently told The Womens Alzheimers Movement, "Someone told me not long ago that when you over-care for someone, you end up under-caring for yourself. That stopped me in my tracks and really resonated with me."
