Embrace Your Power
We’ve all been there: rough breakups can affect you physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. When you’ve been with your partner for a long time, it can be hard to discover who you are without them.
Selena Gomez admits that finding your power after a breakup can be difficult, but it’s necessary to embrace your independence and focus on your personal ambitions. She dished to Seventeen about how she reacted following her breakup from Justin Bieber. “Then I turned 20, and went through a really bad breakup,” she says. “And I realized I need to have ‘Come & Get It’ be amazing. I wanted it to be all me. I’m glad it’s taken me this long to get where I am because now I am ready for it.”
