It’s no secret that Justin Bieber is one of the greatest singers we have in the music industry currently. His rise to fame at such a young age is impressive, to say the least. However, as Justin said, success always comes at a cost.
Fans were shocked and upset to hear that Justin Bieber had struggled with many suicidal thoughts while he was at the height of success. These revelations were made by Justin himself in his latest documentary, Justin Bieber: Next Chapter.
This documentary released just a week before Justin’s pastor, Carl Lentz would lose his pastoring position in the church he co-founded ‘Hillsong NYC’. Carl was the one to baptize Justin and had remained his spiritual mentor over the years.
Even though it is common for people to put their hope and trust in other people than God, it is not the case for Bieber. He has always made it clear that all his faith is in God and he takes the help of spiritual tools in order to stay strong.
However, despite Justin remaining strong, there are fans that fear that Justin will have a setback. This is because of Carl Lentz’s admitted indiscretions. Carl confessed to having an extramarital affair and is currently trying to work on his relationship with his wife and family.
Justin Bieber Opens Up About His Dark Times
While speaking about the dark times he has gone through in his life, the singer opened up about feeling suicidal.
“There were times where I was really, really suicidal. Like, ‘Man, is this pain ever going to go away,'” he said.
Justin continued talking about how consistent that pain was. He was suffering so much that he eventually decided he would rather not feel anything than feel this pain.
However, fortunately, Bieber was able to turn his life around. He took the help of meditation and prayer to find some light in the darkness. He also encouraged his fans to find someone to talk to if they are also feeling hopeless.
Justin said, “I feel so just at peace for the first time in my life…I just would encourage people, like, ’Hey, if you’re feeling lonely, talk about it. Say it out loud!’ There’s a freedom in that. I could have avoided a lot of pain.”
The “Lonely” singer then revealed the secret to a better and healthier life.
“What’s helped me is that I work out a lot, stay physical, and stay active. I pray and meditate, things like that. I write music, listen to music. Music is very powerful; it can really help you when you’re feeling low,” Justin shared.
