Growing up in front of the public eye took a toll on Justin Bieber’s mental health, and with his new documentary At Dawn, the singer has decided to wear his heart on his sleeve and talk about his past struggles. The 30-minute production deals with the singer’s tumultuous past and is titled, Justin Bieber: Next Chapter.
While the Grammy Award-winning singer now feels much more positive and hopeful, his past was far from it. “There were times when I was really, really suicidal,” the singer says in his documentary.
“Really, ‘Dude, is this pain ever going to go away?’ It was so consistent. The pain was so constant. I was just in pain… like, ‘Man, I’d rather not feel that than feel that.’
Bieber then added a touch of motivation before wrapping up and urged fans to reach out if they ever felt alone. “I would just cheer people on, hey, if you’re feeling lonely talk about it.” Say it out loud. Because at the end of the day, “There is freedom in there. I could have avoided a lot of pain. ”
Bieber concluded by reminding fans of the power of weakness. “It’s so hard to show your weakness, but recognizing your weakness allows you to grow. “
