Justin Bieber Seeking Treatment For Depression
Sources close to Justin Bieber are saying that he has been suffering depression for years prior to meeting his wife Haley Baldwin. He has reportedly decided to seek treatment for his depression issues. This has been an ongoing issue for Bieber; however, he feels that now was the proper time to get some outside help.
“Justin seems down and tired. He has been struggling a bit. It has nothing to do with Hailey — he is very happy being married to her. It’s just something else that he struggles with mentally. He has good help around him and is receiving some treatment. He seems confident he will feel better soon.” He started off as a typical sweet, Canadian teen. He was such a great kid, honestly super sweet and very polite and nice to everyone around him. Having this huge amount of fame completely changed him. He had access to anything and everything and was surrounded by people who just said ‘Yes.’ He’s emotional and struggles a lot with the idea of fame — being followed, having his every move stalked by fans, cameras in his face. It all sets him off and he often feels like everyone is out to get him.”
In an interview with Vogue, Bieber discussed his struggle with being rich and famous at such a young age contributed to his depression,
“I started really feeling myself too much. ‘People love me, I’m the s—,’ that’s honestly what I thought. I got very arrogant and cocky. I was wearing sunglasses inside. I found myself doing things that I was so ashamed of, being super-promiscuous and stuff, and I think I used Xanax because I was so ashamed.”
Touring also weighed heavy on the singer’s mental state,
“I got really depressed on tour. I haven’t talked about this, and I’m still processing so much stuff that I haven’t talked about. I was lonely. I needed some time.”
