The mental health advocate and constant truth-teller delivered some words of self-love wisdom on Twitter Tuesday. Lovato, who has been open about her struggles with anorexia and bulimia, wrote that whenever she is having a bad body image day, she gives herself an eye-opening reminder.
“I’d rather live in freedom from my eating disorder than worry about what people think about my body,” she wrote. “I am more than a number and a jean size. Fuck yeah!”
Yeah is right. Having a bad day is totally normal, but it’s so easy to lose sight of the fact that things could be much worse. You don’t need to have struggled with an eating disorder to appreciate the fact that your health and happiness mean so much more than what other people think about you.
Lovato constantly uses her platform to remind us that we’re perfect as is. Just a few days earlier, following the release of Kendrick Lamar’s polarizing ode to stretch marks, she celebrated being “totally cool with” her own.
