Celebrities are not "just like us." They have multiple mansions, glam teams, stylists, personal trainers, nutritionists, and personal chefs. But even with all those luxuries, there's no way around universal human experiences like self-doubt, fear, loneliness, and sadness. That's why it can be comforting to fans when celebrities open up about their inner struggles and no one is more open about how they're navigating society and social media like Selena Gomez. In addition to advocating for mental health through the Rare Impact Fund and destigmatizing bipolar disorder, she's also honest about the toxicity that comes with being in the limelight and she routinely reminds her fans to take breaks from social media as much as possible.

Here are some of the most empowering, insightful, and relatable quotes Selena has given us through the years from interviews and social media posts. Hopefully, they remind you to slow down and be kind to yourself this week!
