When celebrities speak out about their internal struggles, especially with issues many of us “regular” people face such as body image issues, it’s always refreshing. Granted we’re not wishing for others to suffer from poor self-esteem, body image, etc.; it’s just nice to know we’re not alone. Demi Lovato continues to be amazing when sharing her struggles with body image and being open about her depression, anxieties, self-harm and eating disorder. If you relate to any of the battles Demi fights/has fought, it’s great to know that someone as successful as Demi has made so much progress on her never-ending journey towards self-acceptance and self-love. Actually, even if you can’t relate to most–or any–of the battles she fights, you can’t help but feel a sense of happiness for her. Look at her overcoming her fears and making milestones; look at her feeling confident in the skin she’s in. She’s amazing! And guess what? You, or anyone you know, that is facing similar battles with self-image, self-esteem, etcetera are capable of being successful. We could all learn a thing or two from Demi Lovato.
Recently she tweeted about what she does when she has days hating her body and feeling negative towards her body image, writing:
Whether you have lived with an eating disorder or not, it’s important to take away one key message that we often hear, but don’t necessarily comprehend or understand: “I am more than a number and a jean size.” Your weight, your clothing size, the space you occupy, and the ‘flaws’ on your body do not measure or limit your beauty. Beauty is immeasurable. Everyone has good days and bad days, even people like Demi Lovato. Don’t give up on those bad days, though. Keep making progress! Are there any other body-positive celebrities that inspire you? I’m always on the look-out for more celebrities to look up to!
