- Justin was young, confused and lost but now he is glad that all that is in the past
- The 27-year-old remembered being arrested back when he was just 20 and having the whole world watch him at his lowest
- The musician added that he is happy God always thought of him and finally delivered him
Before hitting 18, Justin Bieber was a hit and nearly the whole world bumped and nodded to his music.
The fame, attention, money and power that came with his success somehow messed with him and his life was in shambles a few years after.
The now married and happy musician looks back at his dark days with a light heart and peaceful mind.
In a post shared on Instagram, Justin shared how shaken and distraught he was seven years back when he was cuffed by the police publicly and escorted to a station as the paparazzi watched.
His photos were all over the news and the singer became a cautionary tale in a lot of households.
Justin’s glory had fizzled out and any respect people had for him slowly fizzled out.
The 27-year-old explained that during that period, he was depressed and his hope was gone.
The Cold Water singer also stated he was pissed at God at the direction his life was taken but years later, Jesus delivered him and now he is happy.
“All this to say God has brought me a long way. From then till now I do realize something... God was as close to me then as he is right now,” Justin wrote.
''I came from a small town in Stratford Ontario Canada. I didn’t have material things and was never motivated by money or fame I just loved music. But as I became a teenager I let my insecurities and frustrations dictate what I put my value in,'' he said.
According to the celebrity, ego and power got the best of him and ruined his life as far as the most important relationships in his life are concerned.
While this was his weakness and a very difficult place to get out of, he did not let it swallow him a whole as he is now out trying to do everything right.
