“The X Factor” judge Demi Lovato says that she lost friendships once she checked in for treatment for her issues with bulimia and self-harming back in 2010. During your struggles, you always find out who your friends are, no? People surely show their true colors when you’re in need…
She called her treatment a “life-changing” move for herself, because it showed her who really cared about her. In a new interview with “Company” magazine, she said, “A couple of months before I went into rehab, I had a birthday party, and there were a couple of hundred people there. It was full of people who I considered my closest friends.”
She went on to say, “When I turned my phone on after being in rehab for three months, I expected lots of text messages and phone calls. I had four texts. That was a wake-up call.”
She added, “I don’t have loads of friends. I used to, but then I realized, do any of them actually care? Now I have people who, if I break my leg in the middle of the night, will come to the hospital with me. Or they’ll answer the phone at 4 AM if I need them.”
Good for her. It’s better to have a smaller circle of friends who actually care than an entire group of fakes, don’t you think?
