The famous star, Justin Bieber, is known for his controversial lifestyle. It is not a secret that he has been struggling with drug abuse, anxiety, and many other issues from childhood.
However, all his problems seem to be part of his past. Recently, Bieber has opened up about his personal life declaring that his faith in Jesus and marriage to Hailey Baldwin guided him to the path of his healing.
On his Instagram account, the famous singer posted an honest note. He expressed how difficult it was for him to combine both achieving fame and growing up in an unstable home, that combined with having whatever he wanted, led him to struggle with many problems.
He let his 118 million followers know his life in a deeper way saying the following:
“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, your finances, relationships.” He wrote.
“As my talent progressed and I became ultra successful, it happened within a strand of two years. My whole world 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 much they loved me and how great I was.” Bieber added.
“Everyone did everything for me, so I never even learned the fundamentals of responsibility,” he explained. “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. 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.” He continued.
“I became resentful, disrespectful to women, and angry,” he said, adding that he became increasingly distant from those who loved him.
“You see, I have a lot of money, clothes, cars, accolades, achievements, awards, and I was still unfulfilled,” he recalled. “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 added, before speaking to how his marriage to Baldwin, 22, has helped him move forward.
“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 finished. “Be kind today, be bold today and love people today, not by your standards but by God’s perfect unfailing love.”
He has openly talked about his Christian faith. He is often seen at Church and in his free time, he tends to spend time with other influential young Christian leaders, such as: Lead Pastor Carl Lentz, Hillsong NYC co-pastor and worship leader Joel Houston, City Church Pastor Judah, among others.
Recently, Bieber shared an Instagram clip of his performance at Churchome in Beverly Hills, California where he helped lead worship.
“Sang at church last night. God is pulling me through a hard season. Having trust in Jesus at your worst times is the absolute hardest. But He is faithful to complete what He started,” he captioned the post.
“I also want to thank my wife for being such a huge support in my life through this season.” he continued. “It says in the Bible count it ALL JOY when you face trials of various kinds. Sounds insane considering when you face trials you feel terrible. But if we are grateful and worship God for what we do have in that season there is so much power in that. Whatever pain you are going through just keep telling yourself, THIS WONT LAST! Love you guys we in this together.”
