Demi Lovato just celebrated her 28th birthday, but she almost didn’t live to see it.
On July 24th, 2018, Demi nearly lost her life after an overdose. On that day this year, Demi opened up about how she’s so lucky to still be here.
“Today is my miracle day. I’m so blessed to have one,” Demi said. “It represents how the (doctors) at Cedars-Sinai saved my life. How my life has become something beyond my wildest dreams.”
“Only 2 years after that terrible day, I’m engaged to the love of my life, and I can genuinely say I feel free of my demons. Each and every one.”
“I never thought this feeling was possible. And it’s not just because I fell in love (although that didn’t hurt), but because over the past 2 years, I’ve done more work on myself than I have in my entire life.”
Demi then went on to share that she got a tattoo to remind herself to love herself.
“Long before I had an engagement ring on my ring finger, I had the word ‘me’ (tattooed there) to remind myself that no matter what, I vow to love myself. You can’t fully love another without loving yourself first.”
Now, Demi is celebrating her birthday with a special campaign to help bring justice to Breonna Taylor.
