In a recent Instagram post, Justin Bieber opens up about the reality of stardom as he discussed how he grappled with himself and his pathway to veering away from hard drugs.

He starts:

“It’s hard to get out of bed in the morning with the right attitude when you are overwhelmed with your life your past, job, responsibilities, emotions, your family, finances, your relationships. When it feels like there’s trouble after trouble after trouble. You start foreseeing the day through lenses of ‘dread’ and anticipate another bad day. A cycle of feeling disappointment after disappointment. Sometimes it can even get to the point where you don’t even want to live anymore. Where you feel like it’s never going to change.. I can fully sympathize with you.”

Here is his full post.
