After a long time away from her social media feeds, Selena Gomez has returned to Instagram once more to talk about what she is thankful for this Thanksgiving. It's been more than three months since Gomez last posted to Instagram and following her powerful speech at the American Music Awards, she decided to continue thanking her fans for the special occasion. Pictured with a rapturous crowd of her fans, Gomez happily looks into the camera. Her caption reads:
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.
Reiterating her statement about giving up the emotional struggle that comes with trying to "be enough" in order to please others, Gomez's warm extension of love to those fans who have supported her in her hiatus was such a unique action. For her, the support of the public and her devoted fans has been aided in keeping her spirits high during her hiatus. In return, this heartfelt Instagram shows just how deep her thanks runs.
Gomez's re-entry into the public eye at the American Music Awards sent everyone into an excited frenzy on social media. The pop star's return was read as a sign that her health, the reason for her hiatus, was improved and that she may be back for good. While her status as having permanently re-entered to the pop culture sphere is still unconfirmed, it's undeniable that it's exciting to hear from her once again. Better still, to watch a young woman so calmly confident in herself that she discuss her struggles openly and come out the other side stronger than ever is such an empowering experience.
