Kurz vor ihrem Durchbruch zum absoluten Superstar sagte Demi Lovato ihre Welttournee ab und ließ sich in eine Klinik einweisen. Denn obwohl es von außen so schien, als ob ihr Leben perfekt sei, sah es in Wirklichkeit ganz anders aus: Sie litt an Bulimie, nahm Drogen, dachte an Selbstmord und ritzte sich heimlich. In der Klinik wurde sie erfolgreich therapiert, danach gründete sie die Lovato Treatment Scholarship, ein Programm, um anderen Jugendlichen mit ähnlichen Problemen zu helfen. Seitdem vollzieht sie jeden Morgen das gleiche Ritual: Sie bekennt sich bewusst zu ihrer Gesundheit, ihrem Wohlbefinden, ihrem Wesen. Die Affirmationen bilden die Grundlage für ihre dauerhafte Genesung und ihre Arbeit mit jungen Leuten. In Lass dich nicht unterkriegen hat sie 365 ihrer stärksten, ehrlichsten und hoffnungsvollsten Affirmationen gesammelt. Jede Affirmation besteht aus einem Zitat, einer persönlichen Reflexion und einem Tagesziel. Jeden Tag kann der Leser diese Affirmationen für sich nutzen. Dieses Buch zeigt nicht nur den starken Willen einer Frau, die nie aufgehört hat zu kämpfen, sondern ist auch ein wundervoller Begleiter für alle, die Kraft und Inspiration aus Demi Lovatos Worten schöpfen wollen.
