Selena Gomez just posted on Instagram for the first time since she reportedly checked into a mental health facility earlier this fall. She's uploaded three separate black and white photos, and wrote in the caption about the challenges she faced in 2018.
"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 wrote. "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."
It's been a long time since we've seen Selena on social media, this being the first post on Instagram in almost five months. In September, she announced that she was taking a break from social media in part because of some of the negative comments she'd faced on various platforms.
Welcome back Selena, 2019 will be your year!!
