Demi Lovato has gone through more in two decades than more people go through in an entire lifetime. Back in 2010, Lovato reached her breaking point and entered rehab for bulimia and self mutilation. While her personal issues (including a bipolar disorder diagnosis) obviously ran very deep, Lovato's struggles became one of the most talked-about stories of the year, and many people began to wonder if she would become another casualty of fame.
However, nearly one year after she entered a rehabilitation program, she returned full force, releasing her best and most personal album to date and later securing a TV deal as an 'X Factor' judge alongside Britney Spears. Although she seems to be on top of her game right now, Lovato has admitted that every day is a struggle, but she remains optimistic and constantly offers words of hope for others who are fighting their own demons.Check out 10 of Demi Lovato's most inspirational quotes.
