Sunday, Selena shared a fresh-faced Instagram along with an announcement that she intends to take a social media hiatus. In the photo, which she dubbed a “mood,” Gomez flashed a big smile as she leaned her chin in her hand and gazed into a mirror.
“Update: taking a social media break. Again,” she captioned the image. “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!”
She added, “Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi.”
She continued, “Strength doesn’t mean that you have to put on a facade. I think strength is being vulnerable. I hope my fans learn that who they are is beautiful [and] how they can connect with people by sharing what they’re feeling.”
