Rihanna is a musical force to be reckoned with and we also love her bold and unapologetic approach to life. She's also not afraid to be vulnerable, though, which showed when a fan reached out to her for breakup advice.
When Samer (@WaladShami) reached out to Rihanna on Twitter and shared that he’s struggling to get over a recent heartbreak, Rihanna took the time to offer the following wisdom:
"Just believe that the heartbreak was a gift in itself! Cry if you have to, but it won't be forever!"
Rihanna also told him to stay hopeful about love and to know that soon, everything will be ok. "You will find love again, and it will be even more beautiful!" she said. "In the meantime enjoy all that YOU are!!!!"
We love this message. Heartbreak is a gift, although sometimes a painful one. It's a stepping-stone to something much greater for you. Allow yourself to feel what you’re feeling. To cry, to be vulnerable, to be sad and heartbroken - this is all part of the process. Embrace it and don’t try to fight it.
So if you’re feeling heartbroken, channel some of Rhianna’s wisdom and remind yourself that beauty sits on the other side of this heartbreak.
