The singer of 'Sorry' shared a long post on Instagram, where he talked about how to achieve fame at the tender age of 13, growing up in an unstable home and having access to whatever he wanted led him to fight both physically and physically. mentally later in life.
Justin, who seemed to be at his best, revealed that the unmanageable ups and downs of being a singer made him start relying on heavy drugs at the age of 19. The star said he abused all his relationships and was being disrespectful to women.
I became resentful and angry. I became distant from all who loved me, and hid behind the shell of a person I had become. I felt I could never change it, he wrote.
You see, I didn't grow up in a stable home, my parents were 18 years old [and] they were separated without money, still young and rebellious too. As my talent progressed and I became ultra successful, it happened within a two-year chain. My whole world overturned, he explained.
The singer, who has talked about his mental health problems, said that, since he was a teenager, he was constantly reminded of how good he was, something Bieber attributed to his downward spiral.
I went from being a 13-year-old boy from a small town to being praised by everyone, with millions saying they loved me and how great it was. You hear these things enough as a child and you actually start to believe it, he shared.
The singer of 'I Don't Care' said that fame was also detrimental to his personal growth, since he never learned the true meaning of responsibility and could never develop any skills beyond his musical career.
Everyone did everything for me, so I never learned the basics of responsibility. At this point, he was 18 without real-world skills, with millions of dollars and access to whatever he wanted, he explained.
This is a very scary concept for anyone. At age 20, I made all the bad decisions you could have thought of and went from being one of the most beloved and loved people in the world to the most ridiculed, judged and hated person in the world. , Bieber continued.
Despite the problems he faced, Bieber said he found comfort and support in a group of friends, including his wife. Hailey Baldwin , which encourage you to keep going.
You see, I have a lot of money, clothes, cars, awards, achievements, awards, and I still wasn't satisfied. It took me years to recover from all these terrible decisions, fix broken relationships and change relationship habits, he admitted.
Fortunately, God blessed me with extraordinary people who love me for me. Now I am sailing in the best season of my life 'MARRIAGE' !! Which is an incredible, crazy, new responsibility. You learn patience, trust, commitment, kindness, humility, and all the things that seems to be a good man, he shared.
All this to say, even when the odds are against you, keep fighting. Jesus loves you. Be kind today, be brave today and love people today, not according to your standards but for the perfect and inexhaustible love of God, Bieber concluded.
The singer also recently sought professional treatment after revealing earlier this year that he had been struggling a lot.
Since then, Bieber has relied heavily on Baldwin, with whom he married in a secret court ceremony in September last year. The couple even suspended their wedding plans while working on the singer's struggles.
