After the tragic news that Demi Lovato has suffered a drug overdose, I think it's important to remember how much love and positivity she has worked to spread through her music over the years.

Everyone makes mistakes, and we should be thankful that she's still with us. May we all wish her a speedy and safe recovery.

We are each made differently, so find whatever flaw or imperfection you have and start embracing it because it’s part of you. Goal: Be proud of your originality. There’s no one else in the world that’s like you.”
