We think we can all agree that Justin Bieber‘s life hasn’t been the easiest. However, diehard fans of the “Sorry” crooner have stuck with him through the up and downs. These days, though, the pop star needs his fans more than ever. Why? Well, for starters, he took to Instagram on March 10 to say that he’s really going through it right now, and that he could really use the support.
“Just wanted to keep you guys updated a little bit,” the 25-year-old said. “Hopefully what I’m going through will resonate with you guys. Been struggling a lot. Just feeling super disconnected and weird. I always bounce back so I’m not worried just wanted to reach out and ask for your guys to pray for me. God is faithful and ur prayers really work thanks .. the most human season I’ve ever been in facing my stuff head on..”
This isn’t the first time the 25-year-old has been open about his struggles. In a recent Vogue interview he did with his wife Hailey Baldwin (err, Bieber), he opened up about how difficult it is for him to trust people — especially because, more often than not, they turn out to be using him for their own personal gain.
“It’s been so hard for me to trust people,” he told the mag. “I’ve struggled with the feeling that people are using me or aren’t really there for me, and that writers are looking to get something out of me and then use it against me. One of the big things for me is trusting myself. I’ve made some bad decisions personally, and in relationships. Those mistakes have affected my confidence in my judgment. It’s been difficult for me even to trust Hailey. We’ve been working through stuff. And it’s great.”
He then went on to explain that what he really needs in his life is structure, and luckily, Hailey provides just that.
“I’ve always wanted security,” the “No Brainer” singer said. “With my dad being gone sometimes when I was a kid, with being on the road. With the lifestyle I live, everything is so uncertain. I need one thing that’s certain.”
In addition to being extremely vulnerable in the Vogue interview, there have also been rumblings recently that the “Love Yourself” singer has sought professional help for his anxiety and depression.
A source told Us Weekly, “He sees a therapist, but he’s not in a special center or anything. He doesn’t want to be dependent on medication. He struggles with ups and downs, anxiety, depression and uncertainty about the future.”
We don’t know about you, but we think it’s totally inspirational that Justin is being so open and honest about the difficulties he’s facing — especially since there are tons of other young people out there going through the same thing. We’re thinking of him during this time, and we’re hoping he comes out of this feeling better and more confident than ever before.
