After reportedly checking herself into rehab for depression and anxiety, Selena Gomez made her first return into the spotlight at the 2016 American Music Awards to deliver an emotional speech about the importance of self-care. The 24-year-old had also been noticeably absent on social media but broke her silence with her first Instagram post in three months Thursday night.
The black-and-white photo is a tribute to Selena’s fans as she reflects on the “love you guys have given me for years,” including what she says has been “the hardest yet most rewarding one yet.” Read the rest of her heartfelt message below, then watch her tear-jerking AMAs speech here.
I have a lot to be thankful for this year.. My year has been the hardest yet most rewarding one yet. I’ve finally fought the fight of not ‘being enough’. I have only wanted to reflect the love you guys have given me for years and show how important it is to take care of YOU. By grace through faith. Kindness always wins. I love you guys. God bless
