"I have a lot to be thankful for this year. My year has been the hardest yet most rewarding one yet," the 24-year-old "Hands to Myself" singer captioned a photo of her surrounded by hundreds of screaming fans. "I've finally fought the fight of not 'being enough'. I have only wanted to reflect the love you guys have given me for years and show how important it is to take care of YOU."

"By grace through faith. Kindness always wins," she continued. "I love you guys. God bless."

In August, Gomez revealed that she would be stepping back from the public eye to deal with issues of depression and anxiety stemming from her battle with lupus. On Sunday she made a stunning debut at the AMAs in a fiery red Prada gown.

During the show, as she accepted the award for Female Artist of the Year, Gomez got surprisingly candid about her year and why she took time off, sharing, "I think it's safe to say most of you know my life whether I liked it or not. And I had to stop, because I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside, and I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down."
