2016 has been a huge year and even a rough year for most people, like Selena Gomez. The singer had to cancel a few dates in her Revival Tour to check into rehab for panic attacks and depression. She even stepped away from the spotlight and social media just to keep herself healthy again.

During a livestream, the 24-year-old shared the biggest lesson she learned from her challenging year, which inspired all of us to do the same this year. (via Dolly.com.au)

"The biggest lesson that I've been learning since 2016 would definitely be awareness. I think it's really important to be aware of where you are in your life," she said.

"The people you're surrounding yourself with, the people that are purposefully the ones you're spending time with. We go to dinner sometimes with friends, and sometimes we'll leave and we'll think, 'That was such a pointless dinner. What did I learn from it? What will I gain from it? What was the point of it?' And other nights we'll sit at the table for five hours with friends. We're constantly checking in with each other."


Aww, we couldn't agree more, Selena, and we know we definitely need to be aware of where we are and who we're spending time with this year.
