Indeed, even Selena Gomez gets lonely. Sure, she’s the most-taken after an individual on Instagram with more than 100 million devotees, and she has an A-rundown group of friends that the majority of us would dream of, however, regardless she encounters similar sentiments of disconnection that many individuals do.
In a far reaching new meeting with Business of Fashion, Gomez opened up her psychological well-being: a subject she’s truly talked about before. In the wake of hitting a limit a year ago – and along these lines requiring some serious energy off to address Lupus-activated discouragement and tension – she started the fundamental, however “forlorn” strides toward getting sound once more.
“I asked teachers, coaches, managers, people that I respected [because of] the way they’ve lived their life. I asked them, ‘How did you get to this place? What were you like when you were 25? What were the things that you were thinking about?’ And from there, being with like-minded people. You are who you surround yourself with – 100 percent,” Gomez said of her self-care journey.
“If you’re around people who think that stuff is dumb, that think it’s ridiculous – ‘You’re crazy! You’re fine!’ – but you don’t feel that way, then maybe it’s time to reevaluate that,” she continued. “It’s a lonely journey to really figure out where all this stuff is coming from. And to detach from it. I had to lose a lot of people in my life to get there.”
Indeed, even now, that implies being watchful about the general population who Gomez encircle herself with.
“You have to figure out the people that are in your circle. I feel like I know everybody but have no friends,” she said. “I have like three good friends that I can tell everything to, but I know everyone. … It feels great to be connected to people, but having boundaries is so important. You have to have those few people that respect you, want the best for you and you want the best for them. It sounds cheesy, but it’s hard.”
There you have it: Sel still isn’t occupied with counterfeit kinships, and it sounds like she’s all the better for it.
