Justin Bieber already shared a story about his mental health struggles and depression. But now he is speaking candidly about his stardom struggle at a very young age that leads to drug and relationship abuse. He posted a picture of a story he typed on a paper. You must read what Sorry Singer is sharing with his fans and followers.
In that story, he revealed how fame in a very young age had an adverse effect on his life and action he took in the past. On Monday, he shared a lengthy post which encircles his life scenario from the time he became a pop star to a time he decided to get married. So, you can take a quick look at this past and present scenario.
Baby Singer told his fans how growing up in an unstable home and getting access to everything he wanted became the main reason for his physical, emotional and mental health later in life.
He also revealed that unmanageable up and downs from being an entertainer were the main reason for his heavy drug use when he was only 19 years old. Further, he admits that he abused all of his relationships, and he didn’t respect the women.
“I became resentful… and angry,” he explained. “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.”
“You see, I didn’t grow up in a stable home, my parents were 18 [and] separated with no money, still young and rebellious, as well,” he revealed. “As my talent progressed and I became ultra-successful, it happened within a strand of two years. My whole world was flipped on its head.”
“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,” he added. “You hear these things enough as a young boy, and you start believing it.”
The 25-year-old Singer said that name and fame had some sort of adverse effect on his personal growth. He couldn’t get a chance to learn some skills beyond his music career. He didn’t know what is the real meaning of responsibility.
“Everyone did everything for me, so I never even learned the fundamentals of responsibility,” he revealed how stardom affected him. “By this point, I was 18 with no skills in the real world, with millions of dollars and access to whatever I wanted.”
“This is a very scary concept for anyone,” Bieber continued. “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 the person in the world.”
He suffered during that time, but he was thankful to have people support around him.
“You see, I have a lot of money, clothes, cars, accolades, achievements, awards, and I was still unfulfilled,” he admitted. “It’s taken me years to bounce back from all of these terrible decisions, fix broken relationships, and change relationship habits.”
“Luckily, God blessed me with extraordinary people who love me for me,” he wrote this before explaining how his marriage with Baldwin changed his life; and how he got support, he was looking for.
“Now I am navigating the best season of my life ‘MARRIAGE’ !! Which is an amazing, crazy, new responsibility,” he shared. “You learn patience, trust, commitment, kindness, humility, and all of the things it looks like to be a good man.”
“All this to say even when the odds are against you, keep fighting. Jesus loves you,” Bieber wrote the ending line of his story. “Be kind today, be bold today and love people today, not by your standards but by God’s perfect, unfailing love.”
If you read this story, it is quite emotional. A teen boy who enters into entertainment world without getting a chance of personal, mental, and emotional growth would make some bad or worst decision of his life. He started using drug abuse as a way to calm down and to manage things around him well. He struggled a lot even when he was an entertainer or pop-singer. I’m happy that he found a solution or fix in the form of support and marriage. What do you think?
