Demi on thinking before you act:
“I’m impulsive when it comes to fighting back, but I’ve learned to reel it in. Tweeting without thinking does more harm than good. So take a second. Journal what you want to say, and then if you still feel the same later, that’s when you can tweet it,” Demi says.

Demi on keeping positive influences around her:
“I like to have friends in my life who believe they’re going places and are working toward their dreams. When you’re growing and the people around you aren’t, that’s when you have to start shedding them. I’ve done that a lot over the past few years, but it has been so worth it, because the people in my life today inspire me to keep being creative, to have fun, and to be a good person.”
On where her confidence comes from:
“I used to think that confidence came from what other people thought about me, and boys and everything else. But now I realize that confidence comes from what I feel about myself, and reassuring myself that I can do whatever I want and be whoever I want. Just knowing and setting up my future for a great life.”
On giving back to others:
“When I give back, I don’t question my self-worth. I know that if my career were to fall apart tomorrow — even if I were to never have money or fame again — I’d still have value in my soul, because I know that I can have an effect on someone else’s life.”
