With 143 million followers, Selena Gomez is the most followed person on Instagram. With that comes a lot of pressure.
Which is why we're not that surprised that Selena is taking a healthy break from the app.
Captioned in her latest selfie, Selena explains how she needs to get away from the negativity.
“ood lol (I was looking at myself in the mirror -like an idiot!) 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.”
It's not the first time Selena has taken a break from social media. In August 2016, she posted a photo of herself on stage, and then went on a posting hiatus for three months. During that time, she went to group and individual therapy.
“You have no idea how incredible it felt to just be with six girls,” she told Vogue, “real people who couldn’t give two sh*ts about who I was, who were fighting for their lives. It was one of the hardest things I’ve done, but it was the best thing I’ve done.”
Take all the time you need queen!
