Selena Gomez, The Weeknd and Justin Bieber: Love + Learn

What was expected to be the start of a truly great relationship, we now learn is no more. Selena Gomez and her singer/songwriter boyfriend, The Weeknd (née Abel Tesfaye) are done.  Let us all spend a moment in silence, because these two were such an adorable couple.

But despite feelings of sadness for the end of Selena and The Weeknd’s 10-month relationship, it seems Selena has been spending quite a bit of time with Justin Bieber. Like, a lot. And one has to wonder if it’s possible that they may be rekindling their old-school romance.

Justin has appeared to turn a new leaf in his new-found quest for spiritual enlightenment by shedding his “bad boy” ways for a little Gospel. But I would be remiss if I didn’t caution Selena from making another mistake.

Yes, Selena. You’ve tried dating other people for which I applaud you. It’s hard to move on from your first love, but there was a reason for the repeated breakups; reasons that go beyond public knowledge.

As someone who was literally on their death bed only months ago, you’ve learned a true-life lesson on, “Tomorrow isn’t promised.” So rather than revert back to old creature comforts, it’s OK to be a little uncomfortable with someone new.

You deserve better than Justin Bieber. No knock, just truth.

Protect your heart.
