Justin Bieber has been very candid over the last several weeks through his interview with Apple Music's, Zane Lowe, as well as, his YouTube docuseries, on the struggles he had following his breakup from Selena Gomez, which he describes as tumultuous and emotionally scarring.

He's also shared about how he struggled to move on from Gomez while he was dating his now-wife, Hailey Baldwin. But during his most recent installment of the YouTube docuseries, Justin Bieber: Seasons, Bieber addressed the photos that showed him crying in public during August of 2018 and what was going on to cause those emotions.

Bieber explained what was going through his mind during that time in August of 2018 as he held a picture that showed him crying. "I remember just struggling," he recalled to the camera.

"I remember feeling, like, emotionally just overwhelmed and talking to her, not knowing how to communicate certain things and just feeling kind of frustrated. There has been a lot of things that have happened in my life and this was a point in my life where I was just like, so overwhelmed ... being a normal person and crying."

For Bieber, he lamented that he felt as though he couldn't be human because of his fame. "When I look at things on the internet and people are like, 'Justin's upset, why is he upset?' It's like, they don't give me permission to be upset," he emotionally continued.

"I don't have 'permission' to be human and shed tears, and there are so many people every day who are in a conversation with their girl or their wife or their mom and they break down, but they don't have cameras capturing it"

Bieber expressed that he too is human and when he gets emotional, it's not always a 'mental breakdown' like people usually say. "People are like, 'Is he OK, is he having a mental breakdown?' and I'm just emotional and, you know, I think that's OK," the singer explained.

Every Day Is Different for Bieber, But Some Days Are Better than Others

Even leading up to shooting his hit single, Yummy, for the album, Changes, he shared that he still had issues that affected his mental health. But, Bieber thinking rationally has come to the conclusion that some days are going to be worse than others and that's ok for him.

"It was just a lot, a lot of people, a lot of dynamic, a lot of stuff," he said reflecting on the 'Yummy' shoot. "I was in my head a lot and it's hard for me to really enjoy it like that, but I know that some days are just gonna be like that. In any work space, there's gonna be those off days where you just kind of feel like, 'I got a good crew, I should be good but today, I just feel off.' I think that day I was just a little off."

His Mental Health Coach Has Taught Him a Technique to Deal with Stress

Fortunately, Bieber has hired a mental health coach named Dr. Buzz Mingin. The professional has taught Bieber a technique for him to use whenever he begins to feel stressed, which he dubs 'Havening'. Mingin described the technique by saying, "Havening is a psychosensory technique that actually raises the feel-good chemicals in your brain on demand."

Baldwin was also present in the docuseries and jumped in to offer an alternative explanation. "It's basically like a self-soothing thing. Everybody has their own version of Havening without knowing it. It's like when you're a little kid and you suck your thumb to soothe yourself," she said.

"When you're starting to feel really stressed out or just to keep yourself calm, it's almost like when you're a kid and your mom rubs your back to sleep and it's the best feeling in the world. It's kind of like that, except you're doing it for yourself."

According to Bieber, the technique has really helped him gain a level head when he's feeling stress out.
