Demi has lived a lot during her 20 years on earth. Aside from being a teen star, she also went to rehab for self-mutilation and bulimia.
She struggled and overcame her emotional issues and now she's become a great role model for teens who are also dealing with similar issues.
Here are some great inspirational quotes from Demi that can apply to a myriad of situations:
--“The smartest thing a woman can ever learn, is to never need a man.”
--“I surround myself with people who make positive decisions … My friends and I look out for each other."
--"One of the scariest moments in life, is when you come to the realization that the only person that can save you is yourself.”
--"To me, I don’t think it does anybody any good to just hide something or cover it up or lie or whatever. I think … that’s what being a role model is all about. It’s not about being perfect. It’s about speaking about your issues and inspiring others to get help.”
--"It’s a complete life change when you really want to better yourself and completely change the patterns that you have had in the past. Do I think I still need work? I think everyone needs work. I just keep working on myself."
--"I wish I could tell every young girl with an eating disorder, or who has harmed herself in any way, that she’s worthy of life and that her life has meaning. You can overcome and get through anything.”
--"It helps to even look in the mirror — and it sounds so cheesy — but if you just look in the mirror and say, ‘You are beautiful,’ and ‘You are worthy,’ those things really help you.”
--"Love is louder than the pressure to be perfect.”
--"If there’s anyone out here tonight that doesn’t feel beautiful enough, or doesn’t feel worthy enough … You’re wrong. Because you guys are all so incredible. And if you’re dealing with any of the issues that I’ve dealt with, don’t be afraid to speak up, because someone will be there for you. And if you think you’re alone, put on my music, because I’m going to be there for you"
--"I have come to realize that just making yourself happy is most important. Never be ashamed of what you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion that you want, and to do what makes you happy. That’s my life motto"
Go Demi! We love you!
