I know its slightly adolescent to obsess over a celebrity but there is a good reason for it. She is the reason why I’m not afraid to stand up and admit that I am nowhere near perfect. She is the reason that I am still standing strong and keep myself clean from self-harming. She stands for something.
Demi Lovato has gone through it all, and she has helped me on countless occasions to get through whatever was troubling me. Whether it was the need to cry or the need for someone to tell me that this wasn’t the end, her music and her interviews did the trick.
Basing my happiness on another human being, no. But having a connection with something like music is definitely needed. It’s a release that isn’t as toxic as cutting myself or thinking badly of myself. I have finally found someone who when they tell me I am okay just the way I am I believe, and for me I’m fine with that.
