"I feel like I know everybody but have no friends," she shared. "I have like, three good friends that I can tell everything to, but I know everyone. I go anywhere and I’m like, 'Hey guys, how’s it going?' And it feels great to be connected to people, but having boundaries is so important. You have to have those few people that respect you, want the best for you and you want the best for them."
Despite the stress of living in the public eye -- which once led her to step back from the spotlight entirely for several months -- Gomez said that she cannot ignore her passion for creating things.
"There were so many moments where I felt like, 'You know what, I’m done.' But there is this fire in me that I can’t explain. I’ll have two days off and it burns," she said. "There’s something inside me that knows I’m supposed to be doing something. I want to be communicating and creating and being stimulated. I want to keep doing things, keep progressing. I always want to challenge myself. So, I want to do the best that I can possibly do."
