Selena Gomez has returned to social media, with her first post in four months.

Gomez shared three pictures of herself, with the following caption:

"It's been awhile since you have heard from me, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and to thank you for your love and support. Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges and growth. It's always those challenges which show you who you are and what you are capable of overcoming."

She wrapped the post by saying:

"Trust me, it's not easy, but I am proud of the person I am becoming and look forward to the year ahead. Love you all."

Gomez entered a treatment facility to help tackle her issues with anxiety and depression.

Since her release from hospital in December, she has had the support from her bestie, Taylor Swift.
