Hi I'm Imane maybe I'm not a writer or I don't have this talent but that book; Demi's book, I get it from someone special my friend (Alaa). so I decided to re-wrote it. Staying Strong by Demi Lovato, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.
I know about her story, and it's good to know she's getting over it. But some things in this book pissed me off way too much. Is this even serious? Mixed with Jane Austen, amongst others?
Well, no. I can't take that seriously. I just can't, especially if all I see in my mind is Miley's twerking on the video from the song her quote was extracted from We can't stop, in case you were wondering. Then, to put it nice, the entire book was absurd.
It consists in a bunch of quotes with little explanations that add nothing relevant and a diary goal that, in most cases, is almost absurd as well. What makes it worse is the fact that the quotes, explanations and goals are as repetitive as I could never imagine it'd be possible.
But then, what bothered me the most, was a message that appeared more than once about bullies. I suffered from bullying for years, but the worst I had to go through was when I was just nine years old.
I was epileptic then, and the things I had to put up with made my seizures come back in spite of the high dose of medicine I was taking back then. In fact, I had to get my dose readjusted several times because of it.
I still suffer from the psychological effects and impact bullying left at such a young age. It still hurts and it still makes me cry, not only me but also my mum. Telling me that I have to forgive is one thing.
Telling me that I have to forgive those who hurt me and were completely aware about it, knew how much it affected me and they only made it worse because "they are flawed and were probably suffering more than you" is a complete different thing.
So, just because they were supposedly suffering that gives them the right to turn my life into Hell?
Why didn't anybody tell me that before? That means that I can go and ruin someone else's life just because I'm suffering. I went through psychological and physical abuse when I was nine and later on. I went through sexual abuse when I was even younger.
You can't even imagine how much pain that causes, unless you've been through the same. You can't even imagine. Fear, suffering, shame, emptiness, depression, self hatred. I was nine and I cried myself to sleep. I was nine and I feared going to school.
I was nine and I had to spend a whole class with ice on my face because they punched me that hard my cheek was almost violet. I was nine and I found myself on a corridor half naked because they decided it was a good idea to pull me on a tight grasp and lift up my skirt so everybody could see my underwear. You know what my teacher did?
Even worse: she defended the agressor. You know what the director did?
Those commitments are the bedrock of her recovery and her work helping other young people dealing with the issues she lives with every single day. Demi is a platinum-selling recording artist whose latest album - DEMI - is already a smash hit.
And she is an outspoken advocate for young people everywhere.
Demi is also a young woman finding her way in the world. And she has stared down her demons and dealt deftly with them in the face of public scrutiny, she has always relied not just on friends and family, but daily affirmations of her self-worth and value.
Affirmations that steady her days and strengthen her resolve. Each day will provide the readers with a quote, a personal reflection and a goal. These are Demi's words. Words she lives by and shares with the people she loves and total strangers alike. They are a powerful testament to a young woman standing up and fighting back.
