Justin Bieber Posts a Selfie From His Therapy Session

Justin Bieber thinks therapy is “cool,” and wants the world to know.

On Wednesday, the “Sorry” singer posted a selfie on his Instagram story from his therapist’s office with the words, “Therapy Session” and “It’s cool to have a healthy mind and healthy emotions.”

The post comes about a week after telling fans on Instagram that he would be taking some time away from music to focus on his health. He shared:

I’ve toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour… I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be. Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health.

So I read a lot of messages saying you want an album .. I’ve toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour. I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do, I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be. Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health. I will come with a kick ass album ASAP, my swag is undeniable and my drive is indescribable his love is supernatural his grace is that reliable…. the top is where I reside period whether I make music or not the king said so. ???? but I will come with a vengeance believe that.. (grammar and punctuation will be terrible pretend it’s a text where u just don’t care).

This isn’t the first time Bieber has alluded to struggling with his mental health. The singer told Vogue, he had abused the prescription medication Xanax.

“I found myself doing things that I was so ashamed of, being super-promiscuous and stuff, and I think I used Xanax because I was so ashamed,” Bieber said. “Drugs put a screen between me and what I was doing. It got pretty dark.”
