Hailey Bieber Reflects on Difficult Start to 2023: ‘Keep Showing Up for Each Other Even When It’s Hard’

By Movieguide® Contributor 

The Hailey Bieber vs. Selena Gomez topic has not been easy on either of the two and Hailey Bieber finally opened up about her struggles this year.  

Bieber took to Instagram to share with fans about her struggle, and encouraged them to support one another.  

“I like to make jokes about how I feel because sometimes it’s easier than admitting I’m having a hard time,” she started. 

“But truthfully since 2023 started I have had some of the saddest, hardest moments I’ve ever had in my adult life and my mind and emotions have been fragile to say the least. And I know so many other people feel the same way I feel, so just know you’re not alone 🫶.”  

She added in a second post, “That being said, let’s keep being there for one another. Let’s be there for loved ones and friends and family and strangers. Let’s just be there for people… let’s keep showing up for each other even when it’s hard. We’re better together 🤍,” she concluded.

This post came after Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber’s ex-girlfriend, asked all fans to stop throwing so much hate towards her in the midst of all the social media drama.  

“Hailey Bieber reached out to me and let me know that she has been receiving death threats and such hateful negativity,” Gomez wrote. “This isn’t what I stand for. No one should have to experience hate or bullying, I’ve always advocated for kindness and really want this to all stop.” 

Later, Bieber posted that she is thankful Selena took a stand.  

“I want to thank Selena for speaking out, as [she] and I have been discussing the last few weeks how to move past this ongoing narrative between her and [me],” Bieber wrote. 

Movieguide® recently reported on how Christ is the foundation of the Bieber’s marriage:  

“As I got older, it got harder to follow church and the Bible because it felt very adult. I don’t want to sound wrong, but it was boring. I didn’t care about it anymore, until I found a church I felt was geared toward young people. And for me, that was the Hillsong Church in New York City,” Hailey said. “It started to feel like my own little community of people who were also young and following God and just immersed in a church community. Then I developed my own relationship to church and my own relationship with God, separate from being raised that way by my parents. That’s been a cool journey for me.” 

The young wife also said faith was her saving grace when she and Justin first legally wed at a courthouse. At the time, Justin had yet to be diagnosed with Lyme disease. 

“When we first got married, we were just figuring out our life together. I felt like putting a wedding in the middle of all of that would be really hectic and stressful,” Hailey said. 

“He was really sick. He has Lyme disease, and he was dealing with a bunch of medical stuff. We didn’t have a diagnosis,” she continued. “And it was hard because everybody from the outside was being super mean and judgmental, saying he looked like he was on drugs, saying how unhealthy he looked, when in truth, he was not healthy and we didn’t know why. … It was months of me being a new wife trying to help him figure out what was wrong and what was going on. Now he’s perfectly healthy. But going through that and then trying to be like, ‘So where does our wedding fit into this?’ didn’t feel like the vibe at all.” 

Justin’s illness also put their wedding vows to the test. 

“We went straight into figuring out the hard stuff. Because you never know what can happen with someone’s health,” Hailey said. “When you don’t know what’s happening, it’s really scary. And then you have the opinions of everybody from the outside, and it just sucks.”
