Pop star Selena Gomez broken her social media silence after three months to share a thankful message to her fans on Instagram.

“I have a lot to be thankful for this year,” wrote Gomez. “My year has been the hardest yet most rewarding one yet. I’ve finally fought the fight of not ‘being enough.’”

She added, “I have only wanted to reflect the love you guys have given me for years and show how important it is to take care of YOU. By grace through faith. Kindness always wins. I love you guys. God bless.”

Along with the message, Gomez shared a black-and-white image of herself with fans.

In August, Gomez revealed that she would be stepping away from public life and social media to deal with issues of depression and anxiety stemming from her battle with lupus.

“She decided to clear her calendar for the year in order to have this be her priority for future happiness and didn’t want to leave any promoters at bay,” a source close to Gomez told People at the time about the star’s career break. “She feels relieved that she can now make more sense of why she was feeling the way she was and is optimistic about the future.”

While accepting the AMA award for favorite female artist in the pop/rock category last Sunday, Gomez addressed her period of silence, telling the crowd “If you are broken, you do not have to stay broken … whether you respect me or not, one thing you should know about is I care about people.”
