Selena Gomez has had a pretty hard couple of years. While she had a kidney transplant in the summer of 2017, she's entered treatment for mental health issues including depression and anxiety twice in 2018. She has always been open about her struggles with mental health, and her struggles with Lupus which is an autoimmune disease. Back in October of this year, Selena entered treatment after having an emotional breakdown over her being told her white blood cell count was very low. While she has been off of social media since the end of September, Selena has resurfaced on her friends Instagrams yesterday.
Selena may be one of the biggest celebrities on the planet, but she takes social media breaks pretty often. Her last social media post was on September 23rd, and it was a a stunning picture of herself smiling. However, she later updated the caption to this, "Update: taking a social media break. Again. As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi." She has not posted since.
Well, it's great that Selena has a ton of friends so we know that she's happy and healthy! Yesterday, Selena's friends Bailee Madison and Connar Franklin both posted photos of their group of friends tubing, and Selena can be seen amongst them smiling and having a great time.
Notice anything? Selena is rocking her best friend Taylor Swift's Reputation Stadium Tour merch. Now that's a great friend! While we're not sure where they're tubing, it definitely seems like Selena is on a snow vacation with her friends which may be much needed.
Selena really looks to be living her best life off of social media. I mean, even her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber's new wife Hailey Baldwin has tried taking a social media break for the exact same reasons. While we definitely hope to see Selena grace our Instagrams again, it seems like she's getting by with a little help from her friends!
