Selena Gomez is back and better than ever, fam. After going through a shit time in 2018 and completing a mental health treatment program following an “emotional breakdown”, your girl is back out in the wild and feelin’ good.

The singer has just taken to Instagram to share a gallery of ~*aRtSy*~ black and white images and addressed her emotional struggles and her recovery in the caption.

“It’s been awhile since you have heard from me, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and to thank you for your love and support,” she writes.

“Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges and growth. It’s always those challenges which show you who you are and what you are capable of overcoming. Trust me, it’s not easy, but I am proud of the person I am becoming and look forward to the year ahead. Love you all.”

This marks Sel’s first Insta post since September 24 of last year, just before she reportedly suffered the aforementioned “emotional breakdown.”

In her previous post, she informed fans that she was “taking a social media break” in order to avoid “negative comments”.

Her caption read:

“Mood 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.”

An insider close to Gomez told People that she’s recovering nicely and has been “spending time with friends and family,” including longtime pal Taylor Swift who shared a photo alongside the 26-year-old just last week.

“She’s feeling much better and looking forward to getting back to normalcy,” says the source.
