Demi Lovato opens up on what she learnt after suffering overdose
Singer Demi Lovato has opened up on what she learnt from her 2018 overdose. The singer made her first appearance at an event where she revealed her journey towards transformation.
In July last year, Demi Lovato was found unconscious in her Hollywood home after an overdose. She was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital.
She later checked into rehabilitation before going to seek further treatment in Chicago.
“I’ve gone through a lot, and this is really my first public thing, so I’m a little nervous. Over the past year, I’ve learned a ton. I feel like I’m more in tune with who I am now, where I’m at today”, she said.
“I’ve learned a lot, I’ve been through a lot and I think as time goes on, as we are being faced with challenges in our life, on a daily basis like we all are, we are all human,” Lovato said.
The ‘Solo’ singer said whenever she looks in the mirror, she sees someone who has ‘been through a lot’. Times of India reports.
“I genuinely see a fighter. I don’t see a championship winner, but I see a fighter and someone who is going to continue to fight no matter what is thrown in their way,’ she added.
Lovato said she is still struggling at times to accept her body.
“We hear the term body positivity all the time. To be honest, I don’t always feel positive about my body. Sometimes I do not like what I see. I don’t sit there and dwell on it. I also don’t lie to myself,” she said.
“I used to look in the mirror if I was having a bad body image day and say ‘I love my body, you’re beautifully and wonderfully made.’ But I didn’t believe it. I don’t have to lie to myself and tell myself I have an amazing body. All I have to say is ‘I’m healthy.’ In that statement, I express gratitude. I am grateful for my strength and the things I can do with my body. I am saying I’m healthy and I accept the way my body is today without changing anything,” she added.
