Justin Bieber has taken to Instagram to open up about the ups and downs of being a child star, the depression he has experienced and how his child stardom led to poor choices in life...
Justin admitted that once he became an overnight sensation, people constantly did things for him meaning he “never learned any fundamentals of responsibility. So by this point I was 18 with no skills in the real world, with millions of dollars and access to whatever I wanted."
“By 20 I made every bad decision you could have thought of,” he continued.
...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!
The 25-year-old singer has been pretty public about his struggles over the past couple years and he credits his wife Hailey Bieber and their marriage as something that has helped overcome his hardships.
"Now I am navigating the best season of my life 'MARRIAGE' which is an amazing crazy responsibility."
Bieber finished with a reminder to his fans that Jesus loves them, and to "keep fighting" when the odds are against you.
