About a month ago, Justin Bieber revealed that he was "struggling a lot" in an Instagram post to fans. Ever since that post, he's been super open about his struggles, therapy, and not being ashamed of your mental health. Fans around the world supported him, even after he claimed this is why there hasn't been any new music. Justin Bieber gives a mental health update.
Recently on social media, Justin has become an open book. From things like people tearing apart his marriage to Hailey Baldwin to saying he should be with Selena Gomez, to even just little things. We can all tell he's trying to connect on a deeper level with his fans, and it's definitely working.
In an Instagram post that was posted today, Justin gave fans an update on how he's feeling. Along with the selfie above, Justin wrote:
"Don’t stop fighting the battle has already won.. fight for what you love and who you love don’t let fear and anxiety win..god has not given us a spirit of fear but of power love and of a sound mind! I haven't believed the truth about myself I haven’t believed I am loved I haven’t believed I am forgiven it’s a hard thing for me to wrap my head around. I hang my head in shame and I wallow in sadness about the people who have betrayed me. Jesus has given me freedom and the pursuit of getting to know his character is never-ending. Gods character never changes he is the same yesterday now and forever. He is always good!. I won’t be afraid to be vulnerable before him.. his power is made strong in our weakness. God isn’t afraid of your pain and your brokenness he actually welcomes it. Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest! these are world from Jesus! There is hope and it’s in him.!! He loves and cares for you! For God so loved the world that he gave his only son so that whoever believes him won't die but have eternal life! You are that whoever and he accepts you as you are!!"
He also gave a couple of updates in his Instagram story, which you can view below:
As you can tell by his message, Justin is clearly fighting through some hard things. Justin has always been religious, but he and Hailey have been going to church regularly since they started dating last year. When Justin first told fans about his struggles, he asked them for prayers.
Justin revealed to fans a little while back that he wasn't writing music or touring because he was so unhappy during his last tour. However, during his surprise Coachella performance with Ariana Grande, he said an album was coming "soon". He has also been teasing a collab with Ed Sheeran as well. It's great that Justin is so open about his struggles, as it really helps with the stigma around mental health.
