Sounds Like It's Time to Think Good Thoughts for Tallulah Willis

So Tallulah Willis, one of those phenomenal daughters of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, is allegedly in a treatment center right now. Remember, not too long ago, she did that interview about how she's been diagnosed with body dysmorphia and how she got down to just 95 pounds before she was able to start accepting her beautiful, wonderful self, and she's also reportedly dealing with some kind of substance abuse issues. Now that sounds like a whole, whole lot to handle, but luckily she had her mother and father there to push her into treatment. The greatness just doesn't stop, does it?

Tallulah was allegedly given an "ultimatum" by Bruce and Demi, who were apparently "about to take everything away from her" unless she entered the treatment center. It's not super clear what her exact issue is, but the word is that she had a rough time when Demi went to rehab a couple years ago, and also when her parents' divorced way back in 2000. An old classmate of Tallulah's from high school said that "she was very open about Demi's issues and would sort of imply, 'Of course I have issues too, look at my mom,'" which is a little tragic, huh?

She's getting support from both of her parents, but here's one additional bit of sadness:

"If Bruce suspected that Tallulah had any kind of substance abuse problem, he would have demanded for her to get help. Demi's take is that Tallulah is still very young and trying to find herself."

If Tallulah has been struggling to love herself, and if she has any kind of substance abuse issues whatsoever, then it's not anything about "trying to find herself." There's no reason why someone, even a young someone like Tallulah, should have to suffer through that to "find herself." Everyone deserves to feel comfortable and safe in their own skin, and if they don't, then there's no shame, no issue whatsoever in seeking out help with that.

Love you, Tallulah. Don't you dare stop being wonderful.
