Last September 2018, Selena Gomez announced a social media break on her Instagram account. She has been out of the public eye since then. It was also recently reported that she had undergone treatment for the past few months due to an emotional breakdown.

On January 15 this year, Selena once again surfaced on Instagram. Moreover, her post reveals a stronger and braver Selena.

And just recently, she released a new song with one of her closest friend, the songwriter Julia Michaels. Selena and Julia sang together on their newest song entitled “Anxiety”.

The song’s lyrics talks about what’s inside the mind of a person suffering from anxiety and depression.

The chorus goes like:

But all my friends, they don’t know what it’s like, what it’s like
They don’t understand why I can’t sleep through the night
I’ve been told that I could take something to fix it
Then I wish it, I wish it was that simple, ah ah
All my friends they don’t know what it’s like, what it’s like

The lyrics reveal how depressed people long for someone to understand what he or she is going through. Furthermore, it discloses how sometimes we think it’s simple to deal with when in fact, it’s really not. Mental health is a big deal.

Selena’s part then goes like:

Always wanted to be one of those people in the room
That says something and everyone puts their hand up
Like, “If you’re sad put your hand up
If you hate someone, put your hand up
If you’re scared, put your hand up”

Instead of letting her anxieties consume her, Selena is fighting to overcome her struggles so she could become one an encourager to others.

Then the bridge:

I got all these thoughts, running through my mind
All the damn time and I can’t seem to shut it off
I think I’m doing fine most of the time
I think that I’m alright, but I can’t seem to shut it off
I got all these thoughts, running through my mind
All the damn time and I can’t seem to shut it off
I think I’m doing fine most of the time
I say that I’m alright, but I can’t seem to shut it off
Shut it, shut it, yeah

Selena has always been vocal about her faith in public; she was never afraid to be labeled a Christian. In fact her Instagram account visibly declares in her bio:

“Light, space, zest -that’s God. With Him on my side I’m FEARLESS, afraid of no one and nothing.”

Surely, this song will go a long way in being a voice of the unheard populaces who are suffering from depression.

Praying that every individual suffering from depression or anxiety finds healing in the arms of God, just like Selena.
