Los Angeles, CA: International Women’s Day is about recognizing women’s accomplishments and finding ways to empower others. But for Selena Gomez, it’s a chance to reflect on herself, find places she can grow, and write poignant notes to her young self.
On this Women’s Day, Selena addressed her younger self with some encouraging words. Taylor Lautner also commented on the same post with two red hearts, expressing her love for beauty. The Rare Beauty founder urged her fans to practice mindfulness on Wednesday, March 8, and set the tone by sharing a sweet flashback image of herself when she was younger. The 30-year-old star captioned a photo of herself, posing for the camera wearing a light yellow shirt embroidered with daisies. The caption begins with “Dear one, please don’t be afraid to ask for help.”

The most beautiful flashback
Selena uploaded a flashback photo of herself younger in an Instagram post where she looks adorable. The “Heart Wants What It Wants” singer wrote a touching comment about her young self to go along with the sweet photo. She advises her young self to be brave enough to ask for help. Furthermore, he continued the post by urging everyone to be kind to themselves in honor of women. She urged her fans to write letters to their little ones – a “rare reminder” – and stick them in the mirror to say they deserve the best. The legend was signed with a nice “I love you”.
Fans were also surprised by Taylor’s comments on her post. Selena briefly dated Taylor after meeting while filming “Ramona and Bezos” and “Twilight: New Moon.” Still, the media attention on their relationship ultimately killed their vibe. But, from her reaction to Selena’s Women’s Day post, it’s clear the two are still on good terms.
“Today is International Women’s Day and I want each of us to be humble with ourselves,” Selena said. She told her followers to “Write your little self a @RareBeauty #rarereminder and stick it on your mirror to remind you that you deserve the world. I like you.”
Gomez went a step further and added a second proof of her worth to the rare beauty’s Instagram reel. “I wish I could go back in time and tell my younger self to appreciate your face and your body. You may not be like everyone else, but you should be proud of who you are.” He asked to his followers to comment advising them to give themselves little.
