Justin Bieber Recalls Being Suicidal: The Pain Was So Consistent + Says He’s Now ‘Happy & Healthy’
Justin Bieber is getting more outspoken about his personal life and the struggles he’s experienced throughout his career.
Most recently, the “Holy” singer opened up about previously contemplating taking his own life. He revealed in his YouTube documentary Justin Bieber: Next Chapter:
“There was times where I was really, really suicidal. Like, man is this pain ever going to away? It was so consistent, the pain was so consistent.”
Justin Bieber continued and said in the project that was released Friday (Oct. 30th):
“I was just suffering, right? So, I’m just like, man. I would rather not feel this than feel this.”
He credited his faith as a factor that helped him heal. He said while watching his video for “Lonely”:
“I had no idea that this life would take me by storm. I had no idea that I would just get sucked up by all of this stuff.”
He also had a message for his fans:
“I just would encourage people, ‘Hey, if you’re feeling lonely, talk about it. Say it out loud.’ There’s freedom in that. I could have avoided a lot of pain.”
“I want to be the type of person and leader who can tell people, ‘You don’t have to put on a front. You don’t have to act a certain way. Who you are is enough…’I feel so just at peace for the first time in my life.”
He later took to Twitter to let his fans know that he’s doing just fine now. He wrote:
“The last 8 months have been a time for growth. Happy and healthy…”
We’re glad Justin is doing better now!
