“I think scars are like battle wounds—beautiful, in a way. They show what you’ve been through and how strong you are for coming out of it.

I think that I’ve been blessed over the past year to be able to start over.”

Demi Lovato talks to Glamour about the scars she has as a result of cutting and how they serve as a beautiful reminder to take care of herself.
