Then, earlier this year, Demi admitted that aspects of her eating disorder like “workouts and extreme dieting” played a role in her 2018 near-fatal relapse.

In a new Instagram post, Demi shared that although she still struggles with her eating disorder on a daily basis, she has hope for the future.

Demi posted a boomerang of a cup that she painted with with the National Eating Disorders Association heart symbol as well as the phrase “I am worth it.”

“This is the @neda symbol for eating disorder recovery. I painted this at @colormemine years ago.. even though I was in the throes of my eating disorder, I still made this in hopes that I would truly believe it some day,” Demi wrote.

She continued, “I still struggle. Daily. There are periods of time where I forget about my food struggles and other times it’s all I think about. Still.”

“But that is what ED recovery looks like for some people and I still have hope that someday I won’t think about it anymore. For now my mug reminds me that I am worth it, and today I believe it,” Demi concluded.

Hopefully Demi — and anyone else struggling with an eating disorder — can get to a point where they believe that they’re worth it every single day.
