In her most recent post, Gomez posted another few pictures of herself enjoying some quality time with her friends, and captioned it, “A few of my favorite things in the entire world!!!

Adding an update alongside the caption, Gomez told her fans that her Instagram was an expression of the extremes of her life: both highs and lows.

She added that it did not make her life more perfect than the next persons, and reminded her fans that instead of wishing for other people’s lives, it is important to remember that everyone has their own journeys.

She wrote:

UPDATE: I had something I’ve thought about for a while that I want to share. This page is my highlights and a few low lights. I post what I am willing to share with you guys. I hear people say all the time that they wish they had someone else’s life based on a few pictures.. we all do it. But this is me sharing some happy moments with you guys. Trust me, my life isn’t always this filtered and flowery… We are all on our own journey.”

Despite saying that she feels like her life is portrayed as too happy, Gomez has been under scrutiny recently after the engagement of her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber to Hailey Baldwin, her breakup with The Weeknd, and by fans thinking she is not a genuine friend.
