The singer has been through a lot in the past and lately, he’s been opening up about it. Justin Bieber took to his social media yesterday to share a letter all about his drug abuse and the struggle with fame that caused it.
‘It’s hard to get out of bed every morning with the right attitude when you’re overwhelmed with your life, past, job, responsibilities, emotions, family, finances, and relationships. When it feels like there is trouble after trouble after trouble. You just start foreseeing the day through lenses of ‘dread’ and anticipate another bad day,’ he started.
Justin mentioned that it has not been easy in the slightest to leave that mindset behind.
He started from the very beginning, mentioning that he had humble beginnings, being born to teen parents.
But, when he was 13, things changed and Justin blamed his behavioral problems in the past on the fact that everyone did everything for him and he did not learn responsibility as a result.
Justin recalled how, at 18, he had millions of dollars and no real world skills.
He also went from one of the most loved young artists, to one of the most hated and mocked, something that also affected him a lot.
At 19, he was already starting to spiral out of control, doing heavy drugs.
‘I became resentful, disrespectful to women, and just angry. I became distant to everybody who loved me, and was hiding behind a shell of a person i had become. It has taken me years to bounce back from all these terrible decisions, to fix broken relationships, and to change relationship habits. Luckily god blessed me with extraordinary people who love me for me.’
Naturally, he mentioned his marriage with Hailey Baldwin, and revealed all of the things he’s learned from this new commitment, including, patience, kindness, trust, humility, and other things that make one a ‘good man.’
