Justin Bieber has opened up about struggling with heavy drugs at 19 and abusing all his relationships: “My whole was flipped on its head…”
Bieber, 25, opened up about his personal issues from his early stages of fame. The I Don’t Care singer posted a lengthy note on his Instagram with complete transparency to his fans about his struggles with drugs and relationships.
The Baby singer was discovered by music manager Scooter Braun at the age of 13. The pop star was quickly met with fame at the start of his career. He reflected about his past and addressed his growing feelings of depression.
“It’s hard to get out of bed in the morning with the right attitude when you are overwhelmed with your life your past, job, responsibilities, emotions, your family, finances, your relationships. When it feels like there’s trouble after trouble after trouble. You start foreseeing the day through lenses of “dread” and anticipate another bad day. I am fortunate to have people I’m life that continue encourage me to keep going,” he wrote in the note.
“Sometimes it can even get to the point where you don’t even want to live anymore. Where you feel like it’s never going to change,” he stated. Bieber also sympathized with people going through a similar “cycle of feeling disappointment after disappointment”
In addition, he talked about his success as a child saying, “There is an insane [amount] of pressure and responsibility on a child” who is yet to develop his skills and strengthen his emotional control.
He touched upon the subject of his home and family. Bieber stated that he did not grow up in a “stable” home as his parents were separated when he was 18.
He explained the change in his life due to stardom. He said, “I went from a 13-year-old boy from a small town to being praised left and right by the world, with millions saying how much they loved me and how great I was. You hear these things enough as a young boy and you actually start believing it.”
By the age of 20, he stated that he had made “every bad decision you could have thought of.” Additionally, the pop singer also confessed to being involved with “heavy drugs” at the age of 19. He said he became “the most hated person in the world.”
Bieber further admitted he had “abused” all of his relationships. He wrote, “I became resentful, disrespectful to women, and angry, I became distant to everyone who loved me, and I was hiding behind, a shell of a person that I had become. I felt like I could never turn it around,” he stated.
On the brighter side, the 25-year-old explained his progress, “It’s taken me years to bounce back from all these terrible decisions, fix broken relationships, and change relationship habits.”
Justin is now married to Hailey Baldwin and expressed his admiration for the new chapter with her. “Now I am navigating the best season of my life ‘MARRIAGE’!! Which is an amazing crazy new responsibility. You learn patience, trust, commitment, kindness, humility and all of the things it look like to be a good man,” he wrote.
Justin Bieber also told fans struggling with the same stuff to “keep fighting”.
