Demi Lovato Rehab: Demi Lovato's Fight Against Bullying (Video)WendyM
Demi Lovato’s rehab treatment for “emotional and physical issues” is getting tons of support from her fans, as Lovato seeks help for a number of issues, including past bullying.
Demi Lovato’s rehab treatment will help with the bullying she has experienced in the past, among other areas she needs support.
Just recently, Demi joined the fight against bullying by lending her voice as spokesperson for the PACER Center’s “Teens Against Bullying” campaign.
In Demi Lovato’s fight against bullying, she wrote a heartfelt letter to fans on the National Center for Bullying Prevention site that reads:
“I was bullied in middle school. It got so bad I chose to leave and be home schooled. Many people think of bullying as getting beat up in school, but it is so much more than that. For me it was all of the verbal harassment I had to deal with. People say sticks and stones may break your bones but names can never hurt you, but that’s not true. Words can hurt. They hurt me. Things were said to me that I still haven’t forgotten.”
Lovato continued: “I was lucky, though. I had really supportive parents, other education options, and I had outlets like music and acting. I actually used all of the bullying as a motivation to succeed. I think I have actually become a stronger person because of it.””
Demi Lovato also recorded a video PSA for the site to address cyberbullying.
Demi Lovato’s fans are all on her side, as evidenced in blog comment sections and on Twitter. Get better soon, Demi!
