Justin Bieber is opening up about his mental health and past thoughts of suicide in the recent episode of his YouTube Originals documentary, Justin Bieber: Next Chapter.
“There was times where I was really, really suicidal. Like, man is this pain ever going to go away? It was so consistent, the pain was so consistent,” the 26-year-old musician confessed.
Justin went on, explaining that he was “just suffering, right? So, I’m just like, man, I would rather not feel this than feel this.”
After the documentary premiered, Justin did update fans on how he is doing at the moment, which is better.
“The last 8 months have been a time for growth. Happy and healthy,” he wrote.
Later in his documentary, Justin did offer up advice to fans who might be going through the same thing.
“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.”
