1.She made career sacrifices for a chance at inner peace:
"Last year I canceled my tour and went away for 90 days, and it was the best thing that I ever could’ve done."
"Everything I cared about, I stopped caring about. I came out, and it felt like, OK, I can only go forward.”
2.Selena only has room for positive vibes in her life:
"I don’t depend on one area of my life to make me happy."
"You want someone to add to your life, not to complete you, if that makes sense. I’m lucky because he’s more of a best friend than anything else."
3.People's opinions of her are kind of irrelevant:
"Of course I care, but I care less and less, and that’s so freeing. My livelihood can’t depend on Am I liked?”
4.And she refuses to second-guess her feelings:
"I’ve learned the power of saying no—I feel empowered when I say it."
5.She's going to speak her mind, even if it makes people uncomfortable:
"I want to use my voice to be a part of things and to speak out, whether it’s about health or happiness or charities."
6.Finally, she's learning how to adult just like the rest of us:
"I’m not afraid to be wrong now. I would rather say, I stand by this. You have to not be afraid to make mistakes because that’s how you figure it all out."
