In the lengthy statement, Justin sheds light on how his sudden success at the age of 13 altered his way of growing mentally since he was all of a sudden a "boy from a small town" to some who was being "praised left and right by the world."
"There's an insane pressure and responsibility put on a child who's brain, emotions, frontal lobes (decision making) aren't developed yet," he wrote. Justin further detailed how he didn't grow up in a stable home and such examples contributed to his rise and mental fall. Once he got famous with millions, Justin wrote how "everyone did everything for [him] so [he] never learned the fundamentals of responsibility."
The Purpose music maker admitted to abusing drugs by the time he turned 19 and tarnishing all his relationships. "It's taken me years to bounce back from all these terrible decisions, fix broken relationships, and change relationship habits," he added.
