Demi Lovato performed at “We Day” in Canada over the weekend to fight against bullying.
She sang her song “Give Your Heart a Break”, and also had a message for her fans:
“I hit rock bottom. You can go two ways – you can either get help and change your life, or you can continue to go down a bath that will end up destroying your life. I was at a turning point, and I realized that there's so much more to life than being depressed and feeling sorry for myself. That's why I decided to get help.”
"It's okay to get help, and you're not alone. I'm sitting here as living proof that you can get through it, and it's possible.”
This issue has got a lot of attention lately because of 15-year-old Amanda Todd, who killed herself after suffering from years of bullying (you can read more about her HERE). Amanda isn't the only one who's gone through this, so Demi wants her fans to stand up against it:
"I know there's someone out here in this audience who's being bullied and I know they need someone to look up to. This is an issue that we can beat. This is something that you can get through, and this is something that will not bring you down. I want you to help spread awareness of bullying and how serious it is."
