The singer told Harper’s Bazaar that 2018 will be a better year.

I’m going to say [will be] because I think for myself. And anyone who knows me knows that I will always start with my health and my well-being,” Gomez told the magazine.

The 25-year-old said that she “had a lot of problems with depression and anxiety” that is something she has “been very outspoken about.”

“But it’s not something I feel I ever will overcome it,” she admitted. “There will not be a day on which I said,” I am Here in a beautiful dress— I’ve won!’ I think it’s a conflict I go to the face for the rest of my life, and I’m okay with that, because I know that I choose about anything else.”

The former child star said that her priority for 2018 is to “make sure I’m healthy.”
