Selena first opened up about her bipolar diagnosis in 2020.
She added, "What if it happened again? What if the next time, I couldn’t come back? I needed to keep learning about it. I needed to take it day by day."
Learning about bipolar disorder proved to be one of the most important ways Selena coped. She says that educating herself was actually very similar to the way her mother taught her to overcome her fears as a child.
"When I was a kid I was terrified of thunderstorms. I grew up in Texas and I was so scared that lightning and thunder would mean a tornado was coming," Selena explained.
Selena says her mom then purchased her books about thunder and lightning storms so she could understand what was happening.
"[She] basically said, 'The more you learn about it, the less you’re going to be afraid of it.' And it really helped," Selena said.
It sounds like Selena applied that lesson as an adult, learning as much as she could about her bipolar disorder to help her be less fearful about the future.
