Selena Gomez is back in the public eye after completing a two-week treatment program for depression and anxiety.
Selena Gomez has always been open about her battle with depression and anxiety and recently took a short hiatus to put her mental health first.
The singer came clean that she took some time for herself after being spotted for the first time in 2018 with on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber. Their relationship has been strained after a rumored argument with Selena’s mother, Mandy Teefey, which had some Instagram unfollowing attached.
Selena was reportedly seeking treatment in New York.
This is not the first time Selena took a mental health break. Back in 2016, she had also canceled 34 dates on her Revival World Tour to receive treatment in Tennessee.
“I’ve had a lot of issues with depression and anxiety, and I’ve been very vocal about it, but it’s not something I feel I’ll ever overcome.
“I think it’s a battle I’m gonna have to face for the rest of my life, and I’m okay with that because I know that I’m choosing myself over anything else,” she explains. “I’m starting my year off with that thought. I want to make sure I’m healthy. If that’s good, everything else will fall into place.”
