Selena Gomez: My Mind Amp; Me
"I'll be honest, I didn't want to go to a mental hospital," she admitted, "but I didn't want to be trapped in myself, in my mind anymore. I thought my life was over. I thought this is how I'm going to be forever."
Selena Gomez: My Mind amp; Me
i also like how she touched on mindless promo and interviews making her feel like a product. that shit must suck big time. it was also a pretty honest and real depiction of mental health so good on her for showing it and wanting to spark narrative with her platform.
Throughout the film, the audience sees Gomez evolve with her battles and embrace every aspect of her health. She opens her heart and mind to normalize vulnerability as a strength and a powerful tool for acceptance.
The singer's latest song, "My Mind & Me," details the journey of exploring mental health, with the powerful lyrics: "My mind and me, we don't get along sometimes / and it gets hard to breathe but I wouldn't change my life."
She also developed Wondermind, a mental health platform for people who are looking for resources, as well as a community. She's also had the Rare Impact Fund, which has been raising money for mental health services, programs, and foundations.
This second trip to Texas is a moving reminder that we need a community to sustain us and can find healing in returning to our roots. Gomez ends this chapter of her story with a litany of opposing truths that highlight her challenges as well as her strengths: "I am at peace, I'm angry, I'm sad, I'm confident." And we believe her.
"My mind and me / We don't get along sometimes and it / Gets hard to breathe / But I wouldn't change my life / And all of the crashing and burning and breaking, I know now / If somebody sees me like this, then they won't feel alone now / My mind and me," she sings.
"I think what it's a good reminder of is that when people are scrolling through Instagram or they're scrolling through TikTok, or you're watching a documentary, you're getting a small glimpse into someone's life, you're not seeing the full picture," Stevens said. "The truth is, we've had a friendship for the last decade because it's real, it's honest and I'm so grateful for that. I'm grateful that it was included in the documentary, because I think that it is important to see, and I think it's amazing that Selena welcomes honesty in her friendships and I welcome that in my life too." 041b061a72
