How Selena Gomez and The Weeknd Overcame Dark Times and Found Each Other

How Selena Gomez and The Weeknd Overcame Dark Times and Found Each Other

Though Selena Gomez and The Weeknd have taken their love all over the world—from Los Angeles to Paris to Toronto—they traveled through some dark times before being able to do so.

That cliché saying goes, "You can't have a rainbow without a little rain," and as corny as it may be, that certainly appears to be the case for this couple.

First of all, before making headlines regarding her new relationship with The Weeknd, SelGo was making headlines for taking care of her relationship with herself. She took several months off last year and completely disappeared from the spotlight. During that time, she entered rehab program in Tennessee for 90 days to focus on her emotional well-being.



In a recent interview with Vogue magazine, she explained that feeling totally worthless on her Revival tour ended up helping her to make the decision to seek treatment.

"My self-esteem was shot," she recalled. "I was depressed, anxious. I started to have panic attacks right before getting onstage, or right after leaving the stage. Basically I felt I wasn't good enough, wasn't capable."



So she canceled 30 shows and decided to focus on her health in the treatment program.

"You have no idea how incredible it felt to just be with six girls, real people who couldn't give two s--ts about who I was, who were fighting for their lives," she explained. "It was one of the hardest things I've done, but it was the best thing I've done."

It's safe to say that taking the time she needed to be with herself eventually allowed her to be with someone else.

But The Weeknd also went through his fair share of self-growth from hard times that allowed him to do the same, too.

In late 2016, the singer opened up about abusing drugs and alcohol early on in his career just to be able to create music and overcome the hurdle of anxiety during his performances.
