If you ever watched Disney Channel as kid, you’ll remember Demi Lovato: singer, songwriter and star of Disney Channel hits Sonny with a Chance and Camp Rock. Four years ago she quit her show, left her tour with the Jonas Brothers, and went to rehab.
Unlike many other celebrities, she’s been open about her struggle with mental illness, depression, addiction and eating disorders. Demi is an advocate for healthy body image and an ambassador for Be Vocal, a campaign to encourage people to speak up about mental illness.
Like her new album says, there’s nothing wrong with being confident — no matter who you are or what your struggles are. Here are 9 Demi quotes that will leave you with your most confident self.
1. On Beauty
You don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.
2. On Eating Healthy
Eat healthy because it makes your body feel good, not because you want to be thinner.
3. On Flaws
Don’t nitpick your flaws.
4. On Shame
Don’t be ashamed of any part of you.
5. On Strength
You can do it.
6. On Self Worth
You’re worth life.
7. On the Opinions of Others
Haters gonna hate. Let them.
8. On Dreams
Don’t give up on your dreams.
9. On Happiness
Your own opinion and your own happiness are the only things that matter.
Thanks Demi, for always believing in us.
