I had absolutely no value for myself: Demi Moore
Los Angeles: Actor Demi Moore, who was honoured with the Woman of the Year Award by women's recovery centre and sober living programme Peggy Albrecht Friendly House here, says there was a time when she never felt good enough.
Moore, who has come a long way since she first became a star with her career making turn in 1985's St. Elmo's Fire, said it was early in her career that she found recovery, reported variety.com.
"I was spiraling down a path of real self-destruction and no matter what success I had I just never felt good enough," Moore said at an event. "I had absolutely no value for myself and this self-destructive path, it really quickly brought me to a real crisis point," the Ghost star said.
"It wasn't clear at the time, maybe it was divine intervention, but two people who I barely knew stepped up and took a stand for me and presented me with an opportunity, which I guess was more like an ultimatum – unless I was dead, I better show up."
Without divulging the details of what and why she went through, she said she was given a chance to redirect the course of her life "before I destroyed everything".
"Clearly they saw more in me than I saw in myself and I'm so grateful because without that opportunity, without their belief in me, I wouldn't be standing here today," said Moore. She further added: "Life is not a straight line and I think everybody here has dealt with not feeling good enough at some point in their lives."
