After some bumps in the road, Cara Delevingne feels like she's in a great spot in her life, especially after she got sober nine months ago.

"It hasn’t [been easy], but there have never been moments when I’m like, 'This isn’t worth it.' It’s been worth every second. I just don’t know what it would take for me to give it up. I am stable. I’m calmer," the star, 30, told Elle U.K.

Additionally, she learned a lot about herself. "That I’m resilient as h---. That anything is possible. I think I used to say that and not believe it. But now I really believe it," she shared.

Though the model has suffered from anxiety, depression and substance abuse, she wants to be open about her past and struggles.

"For a long time, I felt like I was hiding a lot from people who looked up to me," she said. "To disappear and come back for air, I finally feel as though I can be free and myself, fully."

"There’s not a one size fits all. I felt like waiting to have a life again would have been my downfall," she said of remaining booze-free. "And I believe in that completely, whereas before, I didn’t trust myself. I second-guessed myself constantly. There was a lot of anxiety involved. Now I just feel free of that."

The blonde babe is looking forward to what the future holds, especially since she has a big to-do list, which may include expanding her family.

"I’ve got my eggs to freeze. Stuff to figure out," she revealed, adding that she is gearing up to work on a Patricia Highsmith biopic.

"The script is incredible," she said. She's also recording music, though there's "no plan" in motion.

"It’s not easy. Like anything, it’s a practice. I’m just taking it day by day. The projects I’m doing are things I really care about," she dished.
