The story reveals that in the summer of 2017, after performing 150 concerts in 40 countries in 16 months for his Purpose tour, Bieber had to cancel the final 14 shows. “I got really depressed,” he tells Vogue.
In addition to feeling ‘lonely’ and the need to have ‘some time’ to breathe, Bieber has also been dealing with trust issues; anxious about people whom he thinks are just using him and are not really there when he’s in turmoil.
The interview progresses with the couple’s more revelations about their relationship, the complexities of marriage, their views on religion, and other interesting talking points.
All these, meanwhile, prove that Bieber is already far from his image of teenage angst and rebellion. “I’ve been successful since I was thirteen, so I didn’t really have a chance to find who I was apart from what I did. I just needed some time to evaluate myself: who I am, what I want out of my life, my relationships, who I want to be,” he says.
The struggle of Bieber in finding peace is part of his moral development which he describes as “character stuff.”
Peace, in general, is an abstract concept. With a mental health condition, it gets even more elusive. But having the audacity to seek help in finding it can turn abstract concepts to tangible results. And that’s what Bieber has realized, which he hopes will resonate with his millions of supporters worldwide.
