Emma Heming recently opened up to fans about her crippling sorrow amidst Bruce Willis's aphasia diagnosis.

The model, 44, shared an Instagram video on August 30, in honor of national grief awareness.

"This was the summer of self-discovery—finding new hobbies, going out of my comfort zone and staying active," the entrepreneur wrote. "My grief can be paralyzing but I’m learning how to live alongside it. As my step-daughter @scoutlaruewillis told me, grief is the deepest and purest form of love. I hope you find some comfort in that too."
