Justin Bieber Opens Up About Depression – Is It Taking a Toll on His Marriage?
Celebrities may look fine to us, leading their posh lives and basking in their fame, glory, and riches. While this may be true for most of them, there are some for whom this is all just a façade. An escape from their otherwise lonely lives they lead when they are off-stage. Once the lights go off, they have to face their personal demons – and in most cases, they must fight this scary battle alone.
Justin Bieber, the successful Canadian singer-songwriter, has just recently poured his heart out on social media, opening up about how he has really been struggling with depression. On March 10, Bieber took to Instagram to share his touching mental health story, hoping to resonate with his millions of followers. The story was put up as the caption to a black and white photo of the singer sandwiched between rapper Kanye West and his manager, Scooter Braun.
Bieber put it across that the post was just an update for his fans who were concerned about his mental health. The singer shared that he has been feeling weird and disconnected lately. On the bright side, however, it seems that this is something he has dealt with severally before and he has always managed to bounce back from such an episode. In the post, he requested his followers to pray for him, acknowledging that prayer really does work and that God is indeed faithful.
Massive Support from Fans
As one would expect, his fans responded with kindness, offering words of support and pledging to intercede for him. Many others praised his honesty, while others sent him their love. One follower commended Bieber’s humility and humanity, saying that it demonstrated his strength. According to this individual, opening up is one of the most challenging steps in overcoming depression, and now that the artist had taken the first step, it proves that he is on the right course.
The Instagram post follows recent reports that have been going around, claiming that the Canadian was undergoing anti-depression treatment. In a recent Vogue interview, Bieber shared a darker part of his life, admitting that 2017 was a bad year for him, primarily when he was on the road for his album Purpose. The star and his wife Hailey Baldwin were chosen to grace the cover of the magazine’s March issue.
Concerning the personal battles he fought in 2017, Bieber still has a lot locked up inside him, as he admitted in the interview. As he put it, he is still processing it all and hasn’t talked to anyone about it.
From the little he shared, we got to know that our beloved singer felt lonely and needed to figure things out. Also, he informed his fans that he had to rely heavily on Xanax to get through his day. Xanax is a short-term benzodiazepine used for the treatment of anxiety disorders.
According to him, his sorry state led him to do things he is now ashamed of, such as being promiscuous, hurting other people and even the woman he loved. In a way, he feels that he used depression medication to shield himself from the reality of his actions. Evidently, it was a really dark time for him, since he remembers several times where members of his security team would have to check on him to make sure that he was still alive. On the bright side, Justin has turned his life around, as in now happily married to Baldwin.
