Justin Bieber started talking, almost for the first time about is a problem of substance abuse in an emotional and lengthy Instagram post on Monday night, in the post he wrote about his crusades with fame, drugs, and relationships.
Bieber has insinuated to mental health troubles and substance abuse in the past, and now he says one of the things that was able to save him was his marriage to Hailey Baldwin.
Bieber stated in the long post, which he wrote on the iPhone Notes app and further posted on Instagram, by saying it is hard to face life with the right belief when you’re encountering “trouble after trouble after trouble.”
“You start foreseeing the day through lenses of ‘dread’ and anticipate another bad day,” the “Baby” singer wrote “A cycle of feeling disappointment after disappointment
The pop star, who declared before this year that he was taking a break from music to keep up “focused on repairing some of the deep-rooted issues,” says in the new post that he connects to anyone going through identical ordeals.
He believes his early growth to fame as a key element that caused his problems. “You see I have a lot of money, clothes, cars, accolades, achievements, awards and I was unfulfilled,” the singer writes.
“Have you noticed the statistics of child stars and the outcomes of their life? There are an insane responsibility and pressure put on a child who’s brain, emotions, frontal lobe (decision making) aren’t developed yet.”
Bieber says he grew up in a volatile home with young, separated parents who were going through their own wild phases. To top it off with his quick stardom it was no wonder too much to take for a mere 16 yr old’s head and Bieber’s world was “flipped on its head.”
He says he went from one of the most admired child stars, having not understood many valuable life lessons, to an 18-year-old “with no skills in the real world, with millions of dollars and access to whatever I wanted.” We all know how he was so-called just a spoilt teenager done we?
By the age 20, he had gotten himself into almost every type of turmoil one could imagine, and he had not yet learned to regulate or get accustomed to the high that performers get from being on stage — a high some people try to imitate with drugs. Bieber admits he, too, did “pretty heavy drugs at 19.”
