You should reboot your system and enter on single user mode to do so:

You need to edit the kernel option and edit the line that start with linux16 and search for ro change it rw and add init=/sysroot/bin/bash

Once you there you can edit selinux config file so you restore it as it was,

Do not know why you want to disable SELinux but only change it SELINUX=permissive should do the trick
