So I saw your tweet about demi lovato and I was wondering what you think inspires you the most about her? Because I love her too and I'm going to see her on tour and it will be like the second best thing to ever happen to me, meeting you is number one😁
oh man. when she came out about her issues, particularly with body image and her eating disorder, in 2011, the timing was just too perfect ‘cause it was right when i had just started dealing with my eating/body issues. so to see someone close to my age dealing with some of the same things i was dealing with and being SO strong and inspiring about it…. idk it just gave me so much hope and faith! she also inspired me to be more vocal about what i was going through and try to lift people up more ‘cause you never know who else is dealing with the same stuff as you!
ps idk if i ever had a full-on eating disorder, like i never starved myself or anything like that, but i definitely had some deep issues with how i saw myself and what i thought of my appearance. i had to stop exercising for 9 months in order to have a healthy view of it because i saw it as a punishment my whole life, like “bad dog! go for a run and don’t come back ‘til you’re sweating and panting and you’ve burned off all that pizza and white bread!” lol it was terrible. but yeah once i started back up again in 2012, i was able to go for a walk to the beach and get my heart rate up and ENJOY it. i learned how to want to exercise and take care of my body because i deserved to be healthy and energetic, not ‘cause i was some kind of criminal haha.
but yeah demi lovato is amazing and so strong and such an inspiration. i love her music and i love her and REALLY appreciate all the amazing things she’s done as a role model to so many. i know she’s not perfect but neither am i and neither is anybody else and i think she’s doing way more good than anybody else in her field right now, or anyone i’ve ever seen in the entertainment industry for that matter. so yeah, i love demi :)
