Demi Lovato Talks About Her Past Self-Harming In Self Magazine

July 18, 2012 • By

Demi Lovato has opened up about her past self-harming in the new issue of Self Magazine. Here’s what Demi revealed about the feelings that led her to harm herself:

There were times I felt so anxious, almost like I was crawling out of my skin – that if I didn’t do something physical to match the way I felt inside, I would explode. I cut myself to take my mind off that. I just didn’t care what happened. I had no fear.

Demi also discussed the ways she is working to make a positive change in her life:

I make time for myself and meditate. I’ve spent the past two years getting over an eating disorder and issues like self-harming and bipolar disorder. I have to work on this stuff every day. I’m reminded of that whenever I eat or feel down.

We’re so glad Demi is feeling better and taking more time for herself!
