Selena Gomez’s Life Advice Will Leave You Speechless — One of The Most Eye Opening Videos Ever

Spread the love

when I was seven I wanted to be an actress and I wanted to live my dream and when I was 11 I had a casting director tell me that I wasn’t strong enough to carry my own show and I’m sure all of you have been told that you don’t have what it takes and that you may not be good enough and you don’t have enough people supporting you and you’re being told all of these things and deep down it’s all you want to do you want to be a part of something great you want to make something great and it does more than knock the wind out of you it crushes you when people try to tell you that you’re not good enough and it almost did for me but there was my mom next to me stronger than ever and she said the most important thing is to always trust in myself if I have if I’m doing something because I love it I should do it because I love it and I believe I can do it so she told me to keep going she told me and she taught me to turn the other cheek and let the critics be critics and let us just trust ourselves so for me two years later I got my own show and the first thought the first thought wasn’t oh man that girl when I was 11 said I wouldn’t carry my own show and I did I mean I thought about that for a little bit but I thought about what my mom said my mom was like you have to trust yourself and I realized if I didn’t believe that I could do it I wouldn’t be able to be here and I have I’m gonna I’m gonna say I live a very blessed life I have so much to be thankful for and a lot of you are a big part of inspiring me because I don’t think you get it and maybe you’re not told enough but you inspire me to be better and we should Inspire each other to be better I’m surrounded by people who are supposed to guide me and some of them have and others haven’t they pressure me there’s so much pressure you gotta be sexy you gotta be cute you gotta be nice you gotta be all these things [Applause] and I’m sure you can all relate you all have pressure that you have to deal with every day I’m sure with school with work with friends with parents with family with parents I know sometimes of mine they tell me what to wear how to look what I should say how I should be until recently I had given into that pressure I lost sight of who I was I listened to opinions of people and I tried to change who I am because I thought that others would accept me for it and I realized I don’t know how to be anything but myself important thing is that we learn and we continue to learn from each other please stay true to yourself please just remain who you are and know that we have each other’s back I’d be lying if I said that I’ve never tried to make myself better by giving in because I have but I’ve learned from my actions and for all the things I’ve done I’m proudest of that I’ve learned from my mistakes I want you to know what it’s like that I know what it’s like figuring out what types of friends you have you are who you surround yourself with so I just want to say I hope I can Inspire each and every one of you to just trust yourselves and to love and to be loved I was driving myself crazy first off there was a million things that I didn’t want to see yeah and I would see them over and over and over again then I’m comparing then I’m looking at these people and I’m like how do they it just it’s all the things that people say right it’s nothing new it’s that you usually sometimes feel like you have fomo everyone’s life looks amazing and that happens to me too I’m like well what am I not like I’m missing the plot here like right some things how come it’s so fun for everyone else then it just started getting dark there were accounts that were dissecting me down to my body to my face to my features choices I’ve made telling stories and it drove me crazy because I honestly just wanted to be like none of you you even know what you’re talking about and it just destroyed me so I stopped and I tell every single person everything changed and I’m also I’m also I I’m living in that time where there’s a specific look that’s going on within females so that would get in my head as well you know yeah I do look young so there’s nothing I can do about that of course I am 27 but sometimes I’m like oh I look like a baby which is stupid and I don’t fit into that look which isn’t a bad thing and it’s not bad that that’s what people enjoy and like it’s whatever makes you feel comfortable of course but like when I was out of social media I was so much happier with with just me myself how I worked and that helped a lot there’s a huge part of me that didn’t get a chance to develop my identity in a normal setting so when I was working with Disney it was the best time of my life and I had a great time I have nothing but good things to say but it was a bit more controlled there were certain things that I was you know kind of uh not had to do and not maybe go into like figuring out what my sound would be so I um I’ve constantly been trying to make my music better and better because you know I I know that people may not think I’m the greatest singer but I just worked my ass off and I love I really love writing and creating and creating Melodies and growing and I I felt like this was my chance to say all the things that I wanted to say in in that way when people look at me they don’t see a 22 year old figuring it out as she goes they see what they want to see and that comes with a lot of expectations I know what it’s like to be judged and to be put down I know what it’s like to have other people form opinions of you without even knowing you trying to dim your life I know what you guys go through because I go through it every single day but I don’t let it get to me it’s entirely normal to get pulled off course and just to get in my mind and and let that inside and distract me from who I am but if I actually did that it would drive me crazy I want to say you are not defined by an Instagram photo by a like by a comment that does not define you I want you guys to know that the trick is is to focus on the love and what I want you guys to do every rude comment you get every person that tries to hurt you personally or through the internet I want you to forgive them just forgive them because they don’t even know they have no idea there is so much love in this world and in this Stadium do not limit yourself because of what others expect we all deserve more than we think and in the end nobody remembers those those haters the comments nobody remembers them they’re just background noise when it’s over nothing defines you but what you leave behind and what lives you touch on the way it’s a lesson that I’m still trying to learn but I’m so grateful for what I have and I am ready for what comes next in my life and if you take just one thing from today let it be this I want you guys to believe in yourselves because I believe in you and you guys need to believe in each other

  1. Shes such an amazing person. I love her shes inspiring. When i thought i was alone i found out she has depression too.

    Selena is just such a bold strong dedicated woman!
    And shes taught me to not change myself for no one.

    I know its hard and its impossible but its not❤.


  3. Such beautiful words… Selena is not only beautiful… she's so talented. Plus she is so wise for being so young. Such an inspiration to so many. Luv Selena❤

  4. This is great advice how awesome if everyone would take it. It’s true you are loved more than you know and can do more than you can ever imagine. My rock is my faith in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Selena says by grace thru faith.

  5. As a 60 yr old Man .. I 100% agree with her! I can relate to everything she said / says .. using her platform and talents to bring encouragement to the world. I recommend everyone listen to her music and comments with an open heart.

  6. Selena is a deceiver & a hypocrite. She craves FAME & WEALTH & wants to be in the SPOTLIGHT ALWAYS. Sold her SOUL long time AGO & FOOLED the world for YEARS. TIME THE TRUTH GOT EXPOSED. 99% OF THE CELEBS ARE PART OF THE ILLUMINATI.

  7. these people are delusional this everything boils down to love Bs. these peoples destiny was already set out they success and struggles re fake, they were all pre determined. it's fact You will not be as successful famous wealthy or loved as these people cos it was not predestined for you folks. don't buy this brainwashing bs. we re all spiritual being and our live n destiny is all set out predetermined for us before were even born. this is why its all fake, they use little bits of truth here n there in their motivational speeches in order to get your support and reel you in with their lies.
