Another day, another celebrity posting things on the internet. A lot of celebrities don’t really share emotional posts or personal details, and it’s hard to blame them. I would definitely want privacy in the face of fame.
Justin Beiber is proving pretty open, especially after he posted something quite emotional on Instagram that reveals a lot about his mental health.
Why is this so important? Let’s discuss.

In Justin’s post, pictured above, he put it all out there about his childhood in a pretty unstable home, achieving fame at such a young age, and the “access to whatever I wanted” as the reasons he struggled so hard mentally later on in life.
“I became resentful… and angry,” Justin shared. “I became distant to everyone who loved me, and I was hiding behind, a shell of a person that I had become. I felt like I could never turn it around.”
“Everyone did everything for me, so I never even learned the fundamentals of responsibility,” Justin went on to say in his post.

“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.”

I don’t care if you’re famous or not, it’s pretty big to come out and reveal a less than happy past, along with your current struggles.
It’s also still pretty taboo to talk about mental health issues, let alone admit you have any of them.
It doesn’t matter how much money you have or who you are: mental health issues don’t discriminate. They can and do happen to anyone.
Hopefully, with celebrities like Justin putting issues like this right there in front of the public, people will start to be more open about their own issues and seek help without being afraid or ashamed.
“You see, I have a lot of money, clothes, cars, accolades, achievements, awards, and I was still unfulfilled,” Justin said. “It’s taken me years to bounce back from all of these terrible decisions, fix broken relationships, and change relationship habits.”
