Selena Gomez shares heartbreaking message on Instagram

Selena Gomez has always proved to be an inspiring role model to her young fans – even throughout her rocky relationship with Justin Bieber.

Now, she has proved herself once again, sharing a snapshot of a comment she left to a fan, willing them to keep going.

The comment suggests that a fan had been feeling a deep depression, with Selena following them and writing:

“By me following you is not me saying it’s ok to think these thoughts. It’s not me saying “hey you said sad things, so I’m going to follow you to make you feel better.” God puts us in situations that are so unexplainably difficult for a reason. There is someone in the world feeling so much, just like you. There is someone who will always have it better or have it way worse than you. The point of all of that is for to feel not alone. People everyday feel so many emotions they wish they could turn it off. But that’s not why we are here. We are here for relationships, for people just like us who feel worthless. Your purpose is to share, help, encourage. Remember that. Please. Before you think of taking your life, think of all the life’s you could save. I love you. More importantly there is a God that will love more than I ever could.”


I know I meant lives. I don't care about grammar. I'm sorry I had to share. Every life is worth it.

We really hope that Selena's fan took her words into consideration and we just love that she took the time to address a serious cry for help from someone that could have so easily gone ignored.
