Hailey Baldwin is starting off the new year in a new way. Justin Bieber’s wife took to Instagram on Sunday night to open up about how she wants to be “more open” about her struggles in 2019.

Posting to her over 16 million followers, Baldwin admitted that, even though her life may look “amazing,” she faces her own struggles saying, “I’m insecure, I’m fragile, I’m hurting, I have fears, I have doubts, I have anxiety, I get sad, I get angry.”

The 22-year-old went on to explain how she feels when looking at social media sites like Instagram saying, “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 explained that she wasn’t looking for pity from her followers or even sympathy, but she did admit that women should “lift each other up.”

With the post she included a photo of herself smiling.

On January 6, Life & Style reported that Bieber and Baldwin were spotted walking together on the beach in Santa Monica, California. Bieber wore shirts and a jacket while Baldwin looked warm in a long fur coat. The two were laughing as they walked together down the beach.

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. I’m a 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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!! 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.

Baldwin married Justin Bieber back in September 2018 after a short engagement. The “Sorry” singer proposed to Baldwin in July 2018. While the relationship may have appeared to be rushed, the two had a long history together and had dated on and off for a few years. When Bieber wasn’t dating Baldwin, he was involved in another high-profile relationship with Selena Gomez. Although that relationship was also on and off, Bieber and Gomez split for good in early 2018, and Bieber and Baldwin were soon spotted together again.

Recently, there have been rumors that Bieber has been trying to reach out to his ex-girlfriend, Gomez. However, as previously reported by Inquisitr, Gomez is reportedly avoiding her ex-boyfriend and moving on with her life without him.

Despite any negative rumors that may be swirling, Baldwin is determined to have a good year and she ended her post saying, “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.”
