What made Demi Lovato stop being a clingy, jealous girlfriend?

Valentine’s is right around the corner and with that comes loving your significant other, but what about self-love? For any reader out there who feel stuck in a self-love or relationship rut, you are not alone. Demi too realized that she was looking for love to solve deep seeded emotional issues.

In an interview with Cosmo on Campus Magazine, Demi states:

“I was about 12 or 13 when I developed my eating disorder, and at that time nobody in the public eye talked about their body issues. I feel that if someone had admitted they had a problem, then I wouldn’t have gone down that route myself. That’s my goal in talking about my problems: I want to be the person for other girls that I needed to admire when I was looking for help and strength.”

Make sure this Valentine’s Day is a healthy one. Love yourself first and then focus on finding true love. Not a love that completes you, but one that compliments the complete person that you are! By seeking help and working on herself, Miss Lovato states that she “can finally trust and love and be a better person for the man I am in a relationship with, instead of being a clingy girlfriend or getting jealous.” She has come a long way since her days in rehab. From Disney child star, to her current role on X Factor, she has had quite a life journey at such a young age and we can’t wait to see her continue to blossom. Honesty with not only herself, but also the public, has made Demi a role model for positive body image and healthy relationships.

We at Being Latino wish all of you a Valentine season full of self-love!


About Ces’Ari Garcia Delmuro

Born and raised in southern California to Mexican-American parents, Ces'Ari pronounced Chez-ah-ree, has always had a passion for learning a little bit of everything while maintaining close cultural ties. She graduated the University of California, Irvine with campus wide and political science honors attached to her B.A. in Political Science. The honors titles came from completing a senior thesis on the shared infrastructure between the United States and Mexico. Rather than jumping straight into law school after graduation, she decided to first give back to a community that had similar demographics to her own and thus, joined Teach For America (TFA) and relocated to Arizona during the height of SB 1070 tensions. While in TFA, Ces'Ari earned her M. Ed. in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Science from Arizona State University and completed research on HB 2281, the ethnic studies ban in Arizona. The injustices that the Latino community faces propels Ces'Ari toward furthering her education as a means of gaining a louder voice to speak on behalf of the Latino community. She is currently studying for the LSAT and plans on attending law school in fall 2013. You can find more of Ces'Ari's writing on her personal blog.
