Demi Lovato Talks Importance of Cutting Out Bad Influences From Your Life

Demi Lovato has some wise words about getting rid of negative influences and unsupportive people.

The “Echame la Culpa” singer opened up in a new interview with Zane Lowe on New Music Daily on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

“The help that I got was from people that I had met at new treatment centers or new doctors, new people like that that have been really helpful and beneficial to the journey and the life that I’m living today,” Demi said.

She added that she is still in the “process” of cutting out bad influences: “I think that as you meet people and as people come into your life, you still have to make a decision every time of like, is this somebody that I want around, you know? And if it’s somebody that’s a good influence on you and supportive of the life that you want to live, then keep them. But if they’re not, if it’s not conducive to your journey that you want to be on, there’s no need for them to be in your life.”

“I think it’s just a part of growing up,” Demi continued. “As people come into your life, as you meet people, you learn for your entire life, red flags; things to look for. Unless you’re like 100-years-old with a bunch of life experience, you’re never going to know right away who’s good for you and who’s not. Sometimes you get fooled. Sometimes you get into relationships that you think are healthy and then you realize, ‘Wow, that actually wasn’t healthy at all.’ It’s not that you’re not cautious of it—you’re not aware. It’s just you don’t realize it till later until they do something or you do something and it’s like, ‘Oh, this isn’t working out.’ I kind of find that continues to happen and it’s just a learning experience at each time.”
