For the last few months, Demi Lovato has been adjusting to life as an out non-binary person — now, they're taking a second to chat with their fans about forgiving themselves for making mistakes.
In a tweet posted on Tuesday (July 13), Lovato spoke openly about misgendering — specifically when people use incorrect pronouns when referring to them — and how it's OK to occasionally make mistakes. "If you misgender me — that's okay. I accidentally misgender myself sometimes," they wrote. "It's a huge transition to change the pronouns I've used for myself my entire life. And it's difficult to remember sometimes!"
The star continued, pointing out that unintentionally misgendering them is a mistake that you should do your best to correct, but not beat yourself up over. "As long as you keep trying to respect my truth, and as long as I remember my truth, the shift will come naturally," they said. "I'm just grateful for your effort in trying to remember what means so much to my healing process."
