We can all pass judgements in life, it is what it is. It’s part of the reason that I admire Demi Lovato so much, because I know that it’s got to be hard to be so open with the world ready to pounce on your every move with a world of judgement.
The superstar revealed to Glamour that she isn’t restricting herself from marijuana and alcohol following her near fatal overdose. The singer says that an “all or nothing” way of sobriety wouldn’t work for her.
“I called [my recovery case manager, Charles Cook] and was like, ‘Something’s not right. I’m living one side of my life completely legalizing and this other side following a program that’s telling me if I slip up, I’m going to die,’” she said.
“I think I want to try this balance thing in the substance side of my life too.”
I have to admit that scares me, but I also know that my judgement on what she is saying isn’t helpful. She works with her team and we don’t know everything about her. We don’t know her entire story. We don’t know her medical history. But like us, her team was a little afraid of that decision.
“But they were like, ‘She deserves this opportunity to make that choice for herself.’ So I did.”.
“A one-size-fits-all solution does not work for everybody. What I’m encouraging people to do is just make choices for themselves. Autonomy, for me, is what changed my life.”
I’m sure we’ll find out more when Demi Lovato: Dancing With The Devil, premieres on YouTube March 23rd.
