She plugged her beauty brand, Rare, to add that sometimes it helps to write yourself a note and stick on your mirror to see on a regular basis. If you’ve ever talked to a therapist, there’s a chance you’ve heard the same advice. But if you haven’t, consider this FREE advice.

This comes in a time when Selena Gomez is openly talking about her mental health and her diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Her documentary, Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me, is streaming on Apple TV+.
