Just over a year ago, Camila Cabello presented a life-changing diagnosis: obsessive-compulsive disorder and stress problems associated with a high workload.
Although her health was controlled, the closure due to the pandemic for the former member of Fifth Harmony marked the beginning of a fight she has not been able to win and that is the reason for the separation from Shawn Mendes.
“Before (the pandemic) I felt very exhausted. I had worked almost continuously since I was 15 years old. I was barely home. I did not have time to know who I was outside my career. Add to that my struggles with mental health. With the where the toxic stress levels I did not even collapse because I continued to work after all. “
“I felt very unstable during my quarantine. I burst into tears at least once a day. I was left alone with my anxiety and my mind. It disturbed my relationship. I was exhausted in many ways, and in that moment it felt like “I ran a marathon with a broken leg. I tried to continue, but it was extremely difficult,” he told the Spanish newspaper “El País” in an interview.
Cabello said that because of her illness, she has resorted to meditation, therapy and exercise, in addition to changing her diet, but, she admitted, the process has been more difficult than she expected.
At the moment, she admitted, she needs time for herself and healing.
On November 17, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes announced the end of their two-year love affair.
Through their Instagram stories, both characters told that this stage was closed, but they assured that they will continue to be friends.
“We have decided to end our romantic relationship, but the love for each other as human beings is stronger than ever,” read the message they both signed.
