"I asked teachers, coaches, managers, people that I respected [because of] the way they've lived their life. I asked them, 'How did you get to this place? What were you like when you were 25? What were the things that you were thinking about?' And from there, being with like-minded people. You are who you surround yourself with – 100 percent," Gomez said of her self-care journey."If you're around people who think that stuff is dumb, that think it's ridiculous – 'You're crazy! You're fine!' – but you don't feel that way, then maybe it's time to reevaluate that," she continued. "It's a lonely journey to really figure out where all this stuff is coming from. And to detach from it. I had to lose a lot of people in my life to get there."
