stepping into 2019 I want to be more open, I want to be more open about the things I struggle with, and be able to be more vulnerable. I’m a 22 years old, and the truth is no matter how amazing life may look from the outside I struggle… I’m insecure, I’m fragile, I’m hurting, I have fears, I have doubts, I have anxiety, I get sad, I get angry. I have had more days than I can count where I’ve found myself scrolling through Instagram comparing myself, comparing my looks, feeling like I’m not good enough feeling like I lack so many things and really struggling to be confident in who I am because I constantly feel like I’m just not good enough. Every single day is a confidence battle for me. I’m not writing this for a pity party or for sympathy but just to simply say, I’m a human.. I’m a young woman, I’m learning who I am and, it’s REALLY FREAKING HARD. It’s hard finding who you are, but what’s even harder is being picked apart and compared to other women while trying to do that. There are days that I’m simply broken because of it. It would be incredible if other young girls and women could find it in themselves to lift each other up, to stop making other women who are struggling JUST LIKE THEM, feel incompetent and less than. We ALL have flaws, and that will never change. What I do know is, God made us individuals for a reason, with our own beauty, our own personalities, and our own story because there’s a specific plan and purpose for each and every human created and he makes no mistakes!! So this year I’m gonna do my very best to just be ME and be confident with who I am. Cause I am enough, and I’m loved, and you are enough and you’re loved.
Baldwin, who tied the knot with Justin Bieber last year, revealed that she often finds herself exploring Instagram comparing herself with other people. This contributes to her feelings of insecurity, which she says she fights every day.
Part of Baldwin’s self-esteem issues are related to her marriage. After tying the knot with Bieber last September, fans bashed Baldwin on social media for getting in the way of his romance with ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
Things got so bad that Bieber wrote a statement assuring fans that Baldwin is the love of his life. But that didn’t stop the drama.
In the months following their wedding, Baldwin and Bieber were spotted crying with each other in public, sparking rumors that their relationship was in trouble.
Bieber also faced reports that he was overly concerned about Gomez’s health amid her recent trip to the hospital. Insiders claimed that Baldwin was upset with how much Bieber was worried about his ex-girlfriend.
We do not know if the situation contributed to Baldwin’s insecurities, but it probably did not help reading about the rumors.
Baldwin and Bieber have appeared much better over the past month, so perhaps things are starting to look up.
The pair stepped out in Beverly Hills over the weekend and mingled with fans while showing a bit of PDA.
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin dated back in 2015 before calling it quits a year later. They started dating again last May and got hitched a few months later in a super-secret ceremony in New York.
They have not commented on Selena Gomez’s state of health.
