Read: Chris Brown’s Open Letter

On Thursday, Chris Brown posted an emotional open letter to his Instagram account. The lengthy caption addressed love, struggle, anger and many other topics tied to the “Sweet Love” star’s career.

“I always thought I knew the concept of love,” Brown said in the post. “Fame and money can get in the way of that.”

Brown went on to explain that most of his issues stem from his emotions, and talked about the role of karma in his life.

“Most of my issues always deal with love and me being in my feelings. Not to mention me being a dog sometimes. I can’t speak for everyone but I can say that my actions contributed a lot to my karma. Being jealous and angry and controlling. There has been times where I looked in the mirror and hated the person I see. I talk to God a lot now. He’s given me so much and I feel like I waste his gifts becuz of my impulsive personality. The world is full of negativity and I feel I play a part in it becuz of the choices I’ve made or mistakes. I tend to accept the negative or the riff raff becuz I know what it’s like to be a young black “nigga” in America. I always see the good in people even when they don’t see it. I love others more than myself at times. Everything u see on the surface does not reflect what’s inside. This is my white flag. I surrender to life and all its blessings. I refuse to be petty and attention seeking. To know me is to love me. Good Bad UGLY! Sincerely, Konfuzed”

It sounds like Brown had a true moment of reflection. Hopefully the star can get some clarity and peace in his life.
