Selena Gomez made her return to social media on Thanksgiving! The star, who first returned to the public eye at the 2016 American Music Awards after taking some time off for health-related treatment, took to Instagram to share a moving message with her 103 million followers. "I have a lot to be thankful for this year," Gomez captioned the post. "My year has been the hardest yet most rewarding one yet. I've finally fought the fight of not 'being enough'".

The inscription continued, "I have only wanted to reflect the love you guys have given me for years and show how important it is to take care of YOU. By grace through faith. Kindness always wins. I love you guys. God bless."

Gomez has already garnered millions of likes on her post, which shows that the world was waiting for her return after 14 weeks away from social media. And she certainly inspired so many at the American Music Awards with a strong and impressive acceptance speech after winning the Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist accolade.

During her address to the audience, she stated "I think it's safe to say most of you know my life whether I liked it or not. And I had to stop. Because I had everything—and I was absolutely broken inside. I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down."

Gomez went on: "I don't want to see your bodies on Instagram. I want to see what's in [your heart]. I'm not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore... But if you are broken, you do not have to stay broken. And if that's anything, whether you respect me or not, that's one thing you should know about me is, I care about people."

We couldn't be happier to have her back!
