Justin Bieber has taken to his Instagram to speak about his bad decisions, how he abused drugs and messed up his relationships.
“It’s hard to get out of bed in the morning…when it feels like there’s trouble after trouble after trouble,” said the Canadian star who speaks openly about his depression, adding, “You star foreseeing the day through lenses of ‘dread’ and anticipate another bad day. A cycle of feeling disappointment after disappointment. 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 further walked fans through the “quite unexplainable” pressure placed at the feet of a celebrity who grows up in public, from an unstable home, and goes on to become rich and ridiculously famous.
At 18, with “no skills in the real world,” millions in the bank and “access to whatever you wanted,” Bieber hit the slippery slope. “By 20 I made every bad decision you could have thought of and went from one of the most loved and adored people in the world to the most ridiculed, judged and hated person in the world.”
And he said a lot more. See the touching post below:
By 19, Bieber confesses to doing “pretty heavy drugs.” And he says he “abused” all his relationships. “I became resentful, disrespectful to women and angry,” he admits.
So what’s changed? Everything, according to Bieber, now 25, who pays thanks to God and Jesus, his support network and for his marriage to Hailey Baldwin.
