Selena Gomez has opened up about how a mental health diagnosis changed her life in a new interview with ‘Good Morning America.’

The singer, who shared in April 2020 that she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, told “GMA” on Monday that it was “really freeing to have the information.”

“It made me really happy because I started having a relationship with myself, and I think that’s the best part,” Gomez said, adding that she was “the happiest I’ve ever had.” have never been”.

The ‘Only Murders in the Building’ star first went public with his diagnosis during an appearance on Miley Cyrus’ Instagram Live talk show, ‘Bright Minded,’ at the start of the pandemic.

“After years of going through a lot of different things, I realized I was bipolar and so when I go to find out more, it actually helps me,” the actor told Cyrus at the time. “It doesn’t scare me once I know it. I think people are afraid of that, right?

In the same chat, Gomez said wanting to seek professional medical help reminded her of how her mother helped her overcome a great fear when she was younger.

“When I finally said what I was going to say, I wanted to know all about it and that took the fear away,” Gomez said. “When I was younger, I was afraid of thunderstorms, and my mother bought me all these different books about thunderstorms, [saying], ‘The more you learn about it, the more you will not be afraid.’ And it completely worked.

And while learning more about her diagnosis helped improve the singer’s emotional well-being, one major lifestyle change also made a difference: staying offline.

“I haven’t been on the internet in 4 1/2 years,” Gomez said on “Good Morning America.” “It completely changed my life. I’m happier, I’m more present, I connect more with people. It makes me feel normal.
