Jessica Simpson celebrated four years of sobriety on Monday (Nov. 1st).
The singer and reality star shared a photo from Nov. 1st, 2017 that she referred to as an “unrecognizable version” of herself.
She wrote in the Instagram caption, “I had so much self discovery to unlock and explore. I knew in this very moment I would allow myself to take back my light, show victory over my internal battle of self respect, and brave this world with piercing clarity. Personally, to do this I needed to stop drinking alcohol because it kept my mind and heart circling in the same direction and quite honestly I was exhausted.”
Simpson continued, “The drinking wasn’t the issue. I was. 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. I own my personal power with soulful courage. I am wildly honest and comfortably open. I am free.”
