Selena Gomes Explains a Sad Reason for Her Body Transformation
Selena is ready to unveil the hidden truth she had been concealing. Time and again, this actor-singer has used her Instagram to speak out against body shaming and advocate kindness. Although she publicly expressed not caring about others’ opinions of her appearance, a different narrative was unfolding behind the scenes.
She received a lot of criticism because of her body.
Gomez, who is 31 years old, went on to admit that she wasn’t truthful about how she felt. She confesses that she lied and each time when she went online and posted a picture of herself she actually was bothered while saying she didn’t care.
The comments were hurtful.
The reason for her body transformation is her disease.
Her weight used to fluctuate because of the medications she was taking. People made various assumptions and criticized her. It turned out that she was being judged for gaining weight due to her condition, which is called lupus.
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease. It occurs when the immune system, which is supposed to protect the body from foreign invaders like bacteria and viruses, mistakenly attacks the body’s own tissues and organs.
In the case of lupus, this autoimmune response can affect various parts of the body, including the skin, joints, kidneys, heart, lungs, brain, blood cells, and other organs. The exact cause of lupus is not fully understood, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, environmental, and immune factors.
How the medication actually works.
To manage her disease Selena takes special medication. It affects her body a lot and the reason of the transformation is just a side effect of medical treatment. “[When I’m taking it, I] tend to hold a lot of water weight, and that happens very normally. When I’m off of it, I tend to lose weight.”
It’s not about eating less or more. This is something she can’t control.
She prefers to stay kind even in this difficult situation.
Selena just wanted to tell and support anyone who feels ashamed about their situation, even if others don’t understand it. She wants people to know that they’re lovely and great. Yes, there are days when we feel bad, but she prefers to stay healthy and look after herself. Her medicines are important, and she thinks they make a big difference in her well-being.
All she requests is kindness because you never know the story behind the situation.
Kindness transcends cultural, linguistic, and social boundaries, uniting people from diverse backgrounds in a shared commitment to decency and respect. In a world often marked by challenges and division, practicing kindness becomes an essential catalyst for building a more empathetic, connected, and harmonious society, where people come together to support one another and uplift the human spirit.
