Things are a lot better now.
Justin Bieber has opened up about his "emotional breakdown" after his marriage to Hailey Bieber didn't solve the problems he thought it would.
Speaking in an interview with Apple Music's Ebro Darden which was obtained by People, the Holy singer spoke candidly about his emotional state at the beginning of his marriage.
Leading to the positive place he is today, he opened up on how he came to terms with his personal issues not being changed to due to his marriage.
"It's a journey. I remember when I first got married, I hit a little bit of an emotional breakdown because I thought marriage was going to fix all my problems and it didn't," the 28 year old said. "It just kind of was a reflection of like, man, you're a bit of a hypocrite man.
"You want your wife to do something that you're not doing and it's like, it's hard sometimes to look in the mirror and really have to realize, man, maybe you're not the person that you necessarily thought that you were. And that's just a result of trauma and life circumstances."
Speaking about how his faith has impacted his life, he said that he has learned to not be so "hard on myself' and he is trying to "get better and better".
He continued: "I think that that's ultimately what's going to encourage the people of the world of like, it's discouraging out here sometimes, life smacks you in the face and it can be hard to get back up."
Going on to speak about his upcoming album, while it hasn't been officially announced yet, his follow up to Justice is almost finished and expected to have some big features on it.
"I don't think there's a date yet, but I do know that we're wrapping it up," he told Billboard. "It's almost done. It sounds really good. I'm really excited about it. I got a lot of cool features and yeah, it should be dropping not too long from now."
