Selena Gomez is embracing life without a partner: ' I just want to be happy with who I am'

The 31-year-old believes that whenever 'that person comes into my life, I can just have them add on to me instead of being this insecure, you know, person that I normally used to be.'

Selena Gomez is celebrating all that single life has to offer. The 31-year-old singer came out with her latest track, "Single Soon" last week about looking forward to the end of a relationship. According to PEOPLE, the "Only Murders in the Building" star got candid about her feelings on being single in an interview with SiriusXM Hits 1 LA with Tony Fly and Symon. Speaking of the single on the radio program she said, "It's basically my way of saying, 'It's totally OK being on your own, and it's fun.'"

Gomez also admitted that she is looking forward to sharing her new music, which will be entirely made up of feel-good songs. As for her own stance about being single, the "Wizards of Waverly Place" star admitted, "I think everybody goes through the phase of, 'Oh, it'd be nice to like have someone,' and I get that. But you know, I'm just enjoying where I'm at, and I just want to be happy with who I am so that whenever that person comes into my life, I can just have them add on to me instead of being this insecure, you know, person that I normally used to be."

Speaking of her upcoming music she confessed there is "not one sad song on my album—and I don't mean that in a way, like, everything is not full of meaning because I think even the most poppy songs can have heart," Gomez said. "I want that to come across, but I genuinely don't feel like I have anything in me to write something negative. It just doesn't match with where I am anymore."

She added, "I live in Sad Girl music world. I love that, and I'll write that music all the time, but I just felt like this album shouldn't be that." During her tough times, she said a "lot of work, and that's therapy, and that's surrounding yourself with good people" is what helped during her healing journey.

More recently a filmmaker collaborated with Gomez's Rare Beauty Mental Health Council to de-stigmatize mental health amongst people of color. Filmmaker Elyse Fox created the non-profit organization called Sad Girls Club to de-stigmatize mental illness and make mental health services and resources available to women in need, both in-person and online. With over 200,000 followers on the Sad Girls Club's Instagram account, Fox has noted that they have provided over 250 hours of therapy to its members. "It's important to make mental healthcare accessible to everyone because it's non-negotiable for your overall health. When you neglect your mental health, inevitably other parts of your life will start to decline. It's just as important as your physical health," Fox stated, according to InStyle.

Her incredible initiative connected her with Gomez and her Rare Impact Fund two years ago. Gomez has often been candid about her struggles with anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder. "It was really cool to know that we had that reach and she [Gomez] saw the potential and the value to also partner and work with us as a consultant," Fox rejoiced.  The club's goal is to raise $100 million in the next 10 years with the help of Gomez’s beauty brand, Rare Beauty, which has been donating 1% of all sales to the Rare Impact Fund.
