Demi Lovato is such a kind and brave girl.
The 18-year-old, who recently left a treatment facility for “emotional and physical issues” tweeted her support to Catherine Zeta-Jones – who entered a mental health facility to deal with her Bipolar disorder.
“I don’t know Catherine Zeta-Jones personally but what she has decided to do is SO brave.. And SO difficult but worth it… I’m proud of her,” Demi wrote.
Demi has only recently spoke about her breakdown.
“I basically had a nervous breakdown,” Demi said. “I was really bad off. My parents and manager pulled me aside and said, ‘You need to get some help.’ It was an intervention. I wanted freedom from the inner demons. I wanted to start my life over.”
“I allow myself a lot of freedom and I’m very peaceful now,” she said.
“I have come to realize that just making yourself happy is most important. Never be ashamed of what you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion that you want, and to do what makes you happy. That’s my life motto.”
She also touched upon eating disorders in an interview with Seventeen.
“There have been times when I definitely have been tempted to get rid of my dinner,” she said. “But I will deal with it for the rest of my life because it’s a life-long disease. I don’t think there’s going to be a day when I don’t think about food or my body, but I’m living with it, and I wish I could tell young girls to find their safe place and stay with it.”
“I allow myself a lot of freedom and I’m very peaceful now,” Demi told the mag. “I have come to realize that just making yourself happy is most important. Never be ashamed of what you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion that you want, and to do what makes you happy. That’s my life motto.”
“If you are going through that dark period, go to your family and closest friends,”
“Don’t put yourself in danger. It’s very crucial that you get your feelings out — but don’t ever inflict harm on your own body because your body is so sacred. I wish I could tell every young girl with an eating disorder, or who has harmed herself in any way, that she’s worthy of life and that her life has meaning. You can overcome and get through anything.”
