Former Disney starlet Demi Lovato has revealed that she still struggles with trust issues and doesn’t let new friends get too close to her.
She says that since completing her stint in rehab, she’s much happier and is healthier than ever. But, she revealed that she still needs the support from family, friends and her legions of fans, daily.
In a new interview with Parade magazine, she said, “Just be careful who you trust. Sometimes you don’t know who you can and cannot trust. I still learn that over and over again.”
She said that upon entering rehab, she had to share intimate details of her life with strangers and it caused her to nearly have a panic attack. She added, “I have social anxiety issues when it comes to girls my age because I dealt with bullying, so when I stepped into a treatment center, where I was having to live with 25 strangers…I was like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ I almost had a full-blown panic attack.”
We’re glad that she’s doing so much better since seeking help for her issues! Stay strong, Demi!
