Demi Lovato is remembering all those closest to her that she sadly lost in 2015.
The 23-year-old “Cool for the Summer” singer wrote a touching message on Instagram about how grateful she is, despite having a hard year.
“2015. As incredible as this year was.. This year was also extremely rough,” Demi wrote. “Filled with some of the highest highs, I experienced some of the lowest lows. I said hello to a lot of amazing experiences and said goodbye to many that I love but everything happens for a reason and my skin got a lot thicker this year. I learned that no matter how painful things can be, things do get easier and time really does help heal all wounds.”
Demi continued, “I’m so blessed to live the life I do, with the people I love by my side. I’m hoping that 2016 will be a bit lighter with more hellos and less goodbyes but whatever next year brings I know I’m stronger than I was a year ago. Cherish the moments you have with your friends and family, take too many pictures and always find the humor in things. Life’s too short for negativity and drama. Spread love, not hate and most importantly be grateful. #RIP2015.. We love and miss you already Spawn, Papa, Uncle Billy, Chris, and Buddy.”
