“To mend is to transform.”
Mend is an amazing website and app that people can go to for support when they are mending their hearts after a breakup. Camilla recently teamed up with Mend to talk about how she reinvented herself from past breakups. See below for a snippet of the interview and find the rest here!
If you think back to the first time you were heartbroken, what advice would you give to that younger version of yourself?
“I would say ‘everything is going to be ok’ and ‘however painful it may seem, trust me you will heal, you will smile and even love again.’ It’s not the end of the world but at the time it really feels that way. It is as Marianne Williamson would say ‘Happening for you, not to you.’ I would also say, ‘learn what you need to learn from the breakup so the pattern does not repeat itself again and move on.'”
What has heartbreak taught you about yourself?
“That I am a lot stronger than I initially thought. The power and strength I managed to unlock through the breakup was so deep and powerful, it took me by surprise. It also taught me to always take responsibility for the part I play in a relationship. When we take responsibility for our own actions it helps us look at the situation more objectively and move away from the blame and “poor me” state. It also taught me that I don’t NEED someone to feel loved. I choose to spend my life with someone now but with or without someone in my life, I know I’m okay.”
