Over 4 years after Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor broke-up, the actress once again opened up about what she went through and the advice her mother gave, in an interview with a daily tabloid. The actors had collaborated for Anurag Basu's 'Jagga Jasoos' in 2017.
She said: "I had to break before I could proceed to rebuild myself. I had to unravel and feel everything that had happened I had to take full responsibility for my part in the equation, what I could and should have done better. And accept that the parts that I was not responsible for were not my problem."
"One thought that helped me when I was at my lowest was something my mom told me, 'So many girls and women go through the same thing; you feel you are alone, but you are not.' That thought was very comforting," she told the tabloid.
She further added: "I've always been emotional. I’m a Cancerian and a sensitive soul. I'm not going to lose that or change that for anyone. But what I have learnt is that as a woman, you must protect and maintain your identity. Your sense of self-worth comes from within and not from another person. You come into this world alone, and you leave alone. That’s something you should not lose sight of."
"I'm not saying be guarded in love. No, love with all your heart. Being in a relationship is beautiful and I have a lot to give to a person. But I know now that nobody else gives you your identity," she concluded.
