- Justin Bieber recently spoke out about a time where drugs were all he believed he had
- Stardom was too much for him and not enough, and drugs is what got Justin through each day
- Hailey and their baby are now his reason and Justin has found strength in his dark past
Justin Bieber has come forward to talk about a dark time in his life where drugs were the only thing he believed would get him through. It was at the peak of his career, a time he is both thankful and sorry for.
In a recent interview with GQ, Justine let all the skeletons out of his closet, disclosing information some would never have imagined. This is Justine’s way of releasing what no longer controls him.
Things were so bad that Justin’s bodyguards had to routinely check his pulse while he was sleeping because he was so drugged up. He just could not deal with how hectic his life was at the time.
Justin admitted that he thought becoming famous would solve all of his problems, but quickly learnt that it would only make them worse.
"There was a sense of still yearning for more. It was like I had all this success and it was still like: I'm still sad, and I'm still in pain. And I still have these unresolved issues. And I thought all the success was going to make everything good. And so for me, the drugs were a numbing agent to just continue to get through."
At times, Justin felt very alone and that there was no one he could trust. Being this huge superstar, Justin felt he could not show weakness.
"Going back to the trauma stuff, there was just lack of trust. There was all these things that you don't want to admit to the person that you're with, because it's scary. You don't want to scare them off by saying, 'I'm scared.'"
Becoming a father and finding his beautiful wife Hailey, has changed Justine’s entire perspective on life. He is now living in the moment and creating lasting memories that he is proud of.
"Before, I didn't have that to look forward to in my life. My home life was unstable. Like, my home life was not existing. I didn't have a significant other. I didn't have someone to love. I didn't have someone to pour into. But now I have that."
Justin has found motivation in his past wrongdoings and thanked God for helping him through it.
"I came to a place where I just was like, 'God, if you're real, I need you to help me, because I can't do this on my own. Like, I'm struggling so hard.' Every time we mess up, he's picking us back up every single time. That's how I view it. And so it's like, 'I made a mistake. I won't dwell in it. I don't sit in shame. But it actually makes me want to do better.'"
