Demi Lovato: “I Lived Fast and I Was Going to Die Young”

Demi has revealed that she didn't think she would make it to her 21st birthday.

T he singer and actress has reflected on her difficult younger years when she struggled with drug abuse, depression, an eating disorder and would frequently self-harm. She commented that she didn’t think she would live a long life:

“I lived fast and I was going to die young, I didn’t think I would make it to 21.”

She looked at stars such as Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan who were struggling and in the spotlight for their personal meltdowns, and she believed that she was about to follow them both down a dangerous path:

“I was definitely like, ‘Oh crap. In three years, that’s going to be me’.”

After she checked into rehab to get help, Demi explains that she felt like a stereotype and didn’t ever have it in her head to become a role model for others while working through her problems:

“So now I’m in rehab, and I thought, ‘Oh great, now the world thinks I’m just another stereotype,’ I didn’t go into treatment thinking, ‘OK, now I’m going to be an inspiration.’ At times I was resentful for having that kind of responsibility, but now, it’s really become a part of my life. It holds me accountable.”

She explains that she now meets other girls who she believes she has positively impacted by being so candid about her own personal struggles:

“When I have meet-and-greets, I can’t tell you the amount of times that girls will show me their arms covered in scars or cuts. They’ll tell me, ‘You helped me get through this. Because of you, I stopped self-harming,’ or ‘I got sober.’ Hearing those things gave my life new meaning.”
