In 2010 Demi Lovato went into rehab treatment. she self-harmed herself, had a eating disorder called "bulimia" ,drug/alcohol addictions and Bipolar disorder. When she went to rehab she thought "and i thought, oh great, now the world thinks I'm just another stereotype." Demi never thought she'd make it to the age of 21, but once she started to get better in rehab, in March 2012, she got better and healthier from her disorders. Her self reliance has stuck by her ever since she has overcome her issues, problems, etc. she has always been independent since she's been in the music industry, she doesn't let people get in the way with her self-reliance, especially her past behaviors. Demi has matured and improved on her self reliance. on the other hand just because of her past, others think they know her daily life and her duties, Demi does not let that get in her way because Demi knows her true self, what she's done, and most importantly who she is. In this modern example Demi has simple proven herself that she is not who she was before because she has done better for the best. This connects to transcendentalism because it is this a person who is expressing their true self , a person who has overcome her fears, and most importantly a person who has conquered everything in her life. Emerson would highly appreciate and respect the celebrity, he would enjoy her perspectives. Emerson will understand more of why she did what she did before, he will learn new perspectives and will know the importance of independence.
