Hailey Bieber Finds God Given Beauty In Her Insecurities
Hailey Bieber started the new year with more than a new last name.
The 22-year-old Christian model wife of singer Justin Bieber also decided to begin 2019 with more vulnerability. The newlywed recently shared an Instagram post about some of her insecurities.
“Stepping into 2019 I want to be more open, I want to be more open about the things I struggle with, and be able to be more vulnerable,” she wrote. “I’m 22 years old, and 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.”
Even though Hailey is a supermodel who travels the world and is the face of fashion campaigns, she admitted to comparing herself to others on social media.
“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 wrote. “Every single day is a confidence battle for me. I’m not writing this for a pity party or for sympathy but just to simply say, I’m a human.. I’m a young woman, I’m learning who I am and, it’s REALLY FREAKING HARD.”
Hailey said one of the hardest parts of dealing with her insecurities is when other women criticize her.
“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. There are days that I’m simply broken because of it,” he 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.”
In the midst of her insecurities, Hailey has learned to lean on the belief that God made her uniquely beautiful.
“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,” she wrote. “So this year I’m gonna do my very best to just be ME and be confident with who I am. Cause I am enough, and I’m loved, and you are enough and you’re loved.”
