Words To Live By: Selena Gomez & Perseverance

Selena Gomez has never shied away from discussing mental health. After coming out of quite a few rough patches herself, the star has always been very vocal about expressing her troubles and the ingredients that helped remedy them. And in a recent interview, she chose to detail her mental health journey and the key to self-acceptance.

“Over the last several years I have worked very hard learning to be more comfortable in my own skin and accept the things I used to be hard on myself. The road to self-acceptance isn’t an easy one and trust me I still have my moments,” Selena explained, “my generation grew up just as social media was becoming a way for everyone to communicate with each other. At the beginning I saw it as just a fun way to post pictures and stay in touch with people, and then you realized it started to play with your mind and your self-worth. Once you can separate the two and know your worth isn’t connected to that world it’s a very freeing feeling.”
