We all need an occasional social media detox. Selena Gomez is doing just that, recently announcing on Instagram that she’s taking a break from social media.

With 144m followers, the most followers after Instagram’s own account, it isn’t always the sweet life. In fact, it must be really overwhelming with all that attention whether positive or not.

According to Glamour, the announcement came just two days after the singer threw a wardrobe giveaway on her Instagram Stories. Gomez updated her most recent Instagram post saying, “As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi.”

It’s understandable where Selena Gomez is coming from. We all know one or two people who have zero social media accounts. Their life is all about living in the moment, as they’re off the grid for everyone else. It can be refreshing to not constantly want to share every moment online.

Of course, social media does come with its pros too. Like Gomez mentioned, social media is a platform for expression and communication. It connects people worldwide.

Selena Gomez’s update was also shared three days after she deleted her most-liked Instagram post which showed her posing with a drink. It was removed without an explanation.

Moreover, this isn’t Selena’s first time opening up about the role of social media in her life. Back in August, after posting an album of happy-looking candids, Selena changed the caption to remind her fans that Instagram is mostly a highly curated selection of moments from someone’s life. In other words, people tend to share only the good, happy and attractive parts of their lives online. Selena shared some personal thoughts on it saying, “I hear people say all the time that they wish they had someone else’s life based on a few pictures…we all do it. But this is me sharing some happy moments with you guys. Trust me, my life isn’t always this filtered and flowery… We are all on our own journey.”

And even if we think celebrities are constantly on their social media accounts, Gomez shared that she isn’t and in fact hasn’t been on the Internet in months recently. Her method for avoiding social media: forgetting your Instagram password, removing apps on your phone (including photo editing ones) and only keeping brain games such as Peak.
