Anonymous asked: I really want to know what you think of that latest cocaine confession.
Okay here goes nothing.
What I think about it? I don’t think anything about this, I pretty much knew all this from the start… and for a long time until about a year ago I believed nothing of her sobriety. I knew things because of a close connection and it was sad and I mean if you know how to look… the videos of her snorting and being out of control are out there, and for a fan to see… it’s pretty harsh.
Now once I get this one out, I don’t want to talk about her past as if it has any relation to the present, because it doesn’t and I celebrate her past, it is now long gone.
She will struggle with it forever, and I think everything she is doing will set her free of such a burden you have no idea… And I am so proud of her and this is why I like mister Wilmer Valderrama and you’d think what does he have to do with anything but, give me a moment.
Manipulative, compulsive liars like all addicts …are difficult people to have a relationship with, and the easier road is letting them lie to you and believe their lies so you don’t have to follow them around making sure they don’t hide the coke on your own pants. Now you know what’s really hard? Recovering from a series of years in your life in which you’ve lied to EVERYONE and you are used to your lies… you believe your lies, you’re not an addict(? it’s just a little bit to ease the tension, when you just woke up, having breakfast.
It’s very difficult to talk to people and bite your tongue each time a lie comes to your lips… comes to a very dark point where the lack of substance in your blood and the lack of confidence in yourself make you some kind of vegetable, and it’s hard to move past that… it’s hard to be yourself again, specially when it had been going on for so long you have no idea who you are… so when someone, sticks by your side for a year prior, during the darkness and out to the light for some other couple of years and you work with them, and they make you stop lying even if you might hate them for a long period of time… those people are the saviors. Yes she’s a warrior but she’s got some amazing weapons.
I love seeing her cry. And no it’s not some kind of morbid thing of mine. I love seeing her cry and seeing her laugh and clap crazy excitedly and I love her when she snaps or does something embarrassing, I love it when she is her self and she allows her self to feel, even when she doesn’t really want to, she has no choice she is back to her senses she is living a healthy life with all that is changing in it. I love that she’s in love and that it seems to be really healthy. I love that she’s talking about it because as I said before and people asked me what it was… if she’s talking about it it means that she’s getting over it and I feel like letting it out is a huge last step to overcoming this scary monster and finally moving on.
I celebrate her honesty and dignity, I admire her courage and I admire her mental health today… teaches me how to appreciate mine because if we are here after all that, not only coherent enough but present and good to talk about it, after all we’ve been put and we’ve put our brain through… than brain is fine… brain is good.
👍👏👏 *standing ovation*
Couldn’t have said it better myself
This is the most beautiful thing I have ever read.
Demi Lovato Interview (Part 1)
"It was always there, but then I just acted on it at around 8 or 9 years old. I started overeating, compulsively overeating. I would bake cookies and then eat the whole pan. I went from doing that to being unhappy with my body. I went to just completely starving myself and that turned into throwing up and starving myself and it was just this crazy battle going on inside of me.”
