One thing I’ve noticed is that Beliebers will do anything to avoid admitting the fact that it takes two to tango! Justin’s just as much a part of this relationship as Selena is. Sometimes I think fans become so obsessed with the idea that Selena is out to steal his innocence and Justin is helplessly trying to hang onto it that they’ve forgotten why they fell in love with Justin in the first place: his humble upbringing, how easy he is to relate to, and his constant kindness, even in the glaring face of Hollywood.
He’s been instilled with strong Christian-based morals and values since day one. His mom’s been through so much, from drug and sexual abuse to teen pregnancy, and even took it so far as to attempt to take her own life. It would be ludicrous for her not to want her only son to become everything she was not. She worked hard to give Justin what she knew he was worthy of, from a stable home to friends and family she knew he could rely on for support and love. Justin clearly recognizes right from wrong and what’s best for him, not only as an artist, but as a person.
Fans continuously claim that Selena is “changing” Justin, but I (fervently) beg to differ. Over the years, relationships come and go, our surroundings become altered, we ourselves grow. However, just because certain things in our lives shift, it doesn’t mean we’ve become someone else entirely. We may think it’s about pleasing those around us or others having such an effect on us that we can’t do anything but become who they want us to be. But, what so many people fail to realize is that happiness is fundamentally one’s own choice, and if that means making adjustments about oneself to procure that satisfaction, so be it.
The same goes for Justin. Even though he’s a worldwide phenomenon, if you strip it all away, he’s only a 17 year old trying to make his way in the world the best he knows how. Regardless of his monetary earnings and social status, he has an insatiable desire for true happiness just as much as the rest of us. And whether you like it or not, Selena is currently giving him the contentment he rightfully deserves. Contrary to popular belief, Justin did not enter into this relationship blindly. It was his decision to be with Selena and vice versa, even with the knowledge of potential consequences. They wanted to give themselves a chance, and they will not allow bitter insolence from angst-ridden teenagers to ultimately tear them apart.
I’m not even sure why people who seemingly “hate” Justin and Selena’s relationship try so hard to make others feel the same. They’re simply wasting their time and energy on something that has no paramount effect on their own life. I’m not asking you to approve of their romance, but as a fan, at least have some respect for Justin’s choices. He’s come this far and fought (and is still fighting) passionately to be on stage and do what he loves, to make us happy. Do you honestly think he would let himself fall so easily? Do you really have so little faith in him?
