Selena Gomez, we totally applaud you for announcing on Instagram that you are ‘taking my power back … can’t wait to show you where I’ve been.’ You’re clearly referring to a decision you’ve made to forget about ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. That’s a perfect first step, but now you’ve got to banish him from your brain for good!
Selena Gomez: ‘Take Power Back’ By Ignoring Justin Bieber For Good
But beyond your photo, it was the message you posted that really gave us insight into your thoughts. You announced to the world that you are taking your power back, and that you can’t wait to show everybody where you’ve been. And then you signed off with, “Ps, I still obsess over pickles.”
This is such a pointed message because all of your fans know what a terrible time you’ve had coping with your on/off relationship with Justin. You’ve struggled because you’ve loved him so much for two years, and yet time and time again, he’s abused your trust and broken your heart.
I love that you have finally gathered your strength and that you now are committed to putting Justin Bieber and all his drama behind you. You’re no longer going to wait for him to “come to his senses” and be your “protector” or your knight in shining armor in any way. Justin is just not mature enough to do that or to appreciate your love.
Yes, he still may want you and think you’re “wife material,” but meanwhile, he is out trying to hook up with every cute girl he can find, most recently Yovanna Ventura, his model fling. And before that, it was Kylie Jenner — who once was your friend.
Selena, you’re smiling in the photo, and let’s hope you really are smiling on the inside, too, after realizing that Justin is just not worth all the agony he’s given you. It’s been a long time since you two have actually had fun together, and even longer since he was really there for you as a best friend, and not just as a boyfriend.
Selena Gomez — It’s Great That You’re Letting Go Of The Old Justin Bieber
When you two first got together, you had so much fun together, hanging out, doing normal things like going to Hooters and sharing the fried pickles that you love so much. Now you’re pointedly reminding him in your Instagram message that you’re still the fun, down-to-earth girl who obsesses over pickles — like you’ve always been — and that he’s the one who’s changed.
Selena, sometimes when people change on the outside, in their heart, they are still the same person who you fell in love with. But I think you’ve finally realized that this is not the case with Justin — he has just plain changed. It appears that you’re finally ready to let go of the Justin that you fell in love with, because he no longer exists.
And you can’t lose your own power and belief in yourself because Justin is incapable of appreciating the strength and true beauty that you have. Selena, congratulations on taking your power back, and we can’t wait to see everything you do with it!
Do you agree, HollywoodLifers? Do you think that Selena has finally taken her power back from Justin? Let me know.
