Demi Lovato had a hard life as a teenager and now she has opened up about her troubles!
Some of you might remember the treatment she had in 2010 and has since been using her star power as a platform to raise awareness on such issues.
In August’s issue of Self magazine, Demi talks about why she used to cut herself, explaining:
“There were times I felt so anxious, almost like I was crawling out of my skin – that if I didn’t do something physical to match the way I felt inside, I would explode. I cut myself to take my mind off that. I just didn’t care what happened. I had no fear.”
Aww it sounds like Demi was in some darke places so happy that shes better now.
However, getting better is a daily battle in managing to stay on the right track.
As for how DemDem copes from day to day? She went on to reveal:
“I make time for myself and meditate. I’ve spent the past two years getting over an eating disorder and issues like self-harming and bipolar disorder. I have to work on this stuff every day. I’m reminded of that whenever I eat or feel down.”
We have to think about how brave she is talking about it in a magazine.
The X Factor judge confessed that she hasn’t even used her cell in THREE months, recognizing that she used to view it as a “crutch.”
As revealed in her MTV documentary back in March, she now has the words “stay strong” tattooed on her wrists, serving as a constant reminder on her road to recovery.
