In his words;
“I have a wife who I adore, who I feel comforted by, I feel safe, I feel like my relationship with God is wonderful. And I have this outpouring of love that I want to be able to share with people, you know?”
Further, “It was like I had all this success and it was still like: I’m still sad, and I’m still in pain. And I still have these unresolved issues, And I thought all the success was going to make everything good, And so for me, the drugs were a numbing agent to just continue to get through.”
Likewise, he also shared his 2020 revelation that he was suffering from Lyme disease.
In his words;
“To be honest, I am a lot healthier, and I did have a lot of things going on. I did have mono, and I do have Lyme disease,” Bieber said.
“But I was also navigating a lot of emotional terrain, which had a lot to do with it. And we like to blame a lot of things on other things. Sometimes… It’s a lot of times just your own stuff.”
Accordingly, Bieber said his marriage has become a major positive force after a difficult start.
“The first year of marriage was really tough,” he said, “because there was a lot, going back to the trauma stuff.”
But now, he said, “we’re just creating these moments for us as a couple, as a family, that we’re building these memories. And it’s beautiful that we have that to look forward to.”
Lastly, Bieber says his faith is another reason why he seems to be in a better place these days.
“God is grace,” he said. “Every time we mess up, He’s picking us back up every single time. That’s how I view it. And so it’s like, ‘I made a mistake. I won’t dwell in it. I don’t sit in shame. But it actually makes me want to do better.’ “
