Selena Gomez: "Taking a break from social media was the best decision that I've ever made for my mental health"


Recommended Posts

I would really love someone to advise Britney like this:

“At one point Instagram became my whole world, and it was really dangerous. In my early 20s, I felt like I wasn‘t pretty enough,” Gomez told InStyle.

“Taking a break from social media was the best decision that I’ve ever made for my mental health. I created a system where I still don‘t have my passwords. And the unnecessary hate and comparisons went away once I put my phone down.” Gomez was once the most followed person on Instagram and the pressure of such a public persona started to affect the young star. Her battle with mental health and social media opened her eyes to the need for unapologetic self-care.




Selena Gomez opened up about the toxicity of social media and why she prioritized her mental health and took a break from Instagram.

It may come as a surprise to her over 300 million Instagram followers, but Selena Gomez hasn’t used the social media app herself in over 4 years.

Calm down honey, it’s just an opinion but we already different opinion are not allowed here right?

I mean you can be mad at the past for opinions being silenced sure, but that's not what I'm doing here. I didn't try to quiet you, I just think your opinion is wrong and so I shared my opposing one. Free speech my dear!
