Hailey Bieber took to social media to talk about even though her life seems happy and perfect, she often gets insecure, fragile and is comparing herself to others on Instagram.
Bieber took to Instagram to write about how 2019 is going to be a game changer for her. The 22 year old said she wants to “be more open about the things I struggle with, and be able to be more vulnerable.”
She wrote, “The truth is no matter how amazing life may look from the outside I struggle… I’m insecure, I’m fragile, I’m hurting, I have fears, I have doubts, I have anxiety, I get sad, I get angry.”
She added, “I have had more days than I can count where I’ve found myself scrolling through Instagram comparing myself, comparing my looks, feeling like I’m not good enough feeling like I lack so many things and really struggling to be confident in who I am because I constantly feel like I’m just not good enough.”
She said she fights a “confidence battle” everyday, and fans saw some of that when Bieber accidentally followed a Selena Gomez fan account.
The model made sure to say she wasn’t saying any of this to get a pity party, but just to explain a different side of things. She wrote, “I’m a human.. I’m a young woman, I’m learning who I am and, it’s REALLY FREAKING HARD. It’s hard finding who you are, but what’s even harder is being picked apart and compared to other women while trying to do that.”
Explaining her hope, she said, “It would be incredible if other young girls and women could find it in themselves to lift each other up, to stop making other women who are struggling JUST LIKE THEM, feel incompetent and less than. We ALL have flaws, and that will never change.”
She added, “What I do know is, God made us individuals for a reason, with our own beauty, our own personalities, and our own story because there’s a specific plan and purpose for each and every human created and he makes no mistakes!!”
For her New Years resolution, the model seemed to remind herself, “I am enough and I am loved.”
She has often used social media as a tool to remind herself and her fans that the negativity on social media should not happen.
