Gomez told at the SXSW panel discussion,

“I will say this, you can’t force someone to do it. It just doesn’t work. There were a lot of people that cared about me more than I cared about myself that really wanted me to do things I wasn’t ready for. I had to hit my rock bottom, and I had to do it at my time. I’d like to think and hope that I’m in a better place now.”

Selena Gomez told Rolling Stone,

“It just was me not being able to move from my bed. I didn’t want anyone to talk to me. My friends would bring me food because they love me, but none of us knew what it was. Sometimes it was weeks I’d be in bed, to where even walking downstairs would get me out of breath.” 

However, despite the challenges, Selena Gomez has ultimately found herself in a place of happiness and contentment. Selena Gomez is now making significant progress in her life, through creating new music and finding newfound love in producer Benny Blanco.
