When it comes to dealing with heartbreak, Miley Cyrus tries “not get lost in emotion.” Yep, during a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Essentials Radio, the former Disney Channel star opened up about how she deals with the end of a relationship, just days after she confirmed that she had split with Cody Simpson after 10 months together.

“Our emotion sometimes makes us believe that every thought that we think is real. And I remember at a time we’re dealing with heartbreak, it’s like, ‘I’m never going to be the same again.’ You know? … All of these things I was telling myself. It’s just not true,” the songstress explained.

For those who missed it, Miley confirmed the breakup during an Instagram Live on August 13, where she told fans, “Two halves cannot make a whole and we’re individually just working on ourselves.”

During the interview, the Hannah Montana alum also spoke candidly about her split with Liam Hemsworth and revealed that she had actually written the song “Slide Away” months before their marriage came to an end last summer, after being together for almost 10 years.

“I wrote ‘Slide Away’ before my breakup. I wrote ‘Slide Away’ in February of the year before. And I just keep speaking these things into existence,” she explained. “So, you know what? That’s why I’ve also, I’ve decided to use my language to love myself, and to really create what I want to be my reality. Because otherwise, I keep doing the opposite. I burnt my house down with my words.”

She continued, “But I do believe in where we put our attention determines our faith. And so again with this idea of having nothing to prove and wearing the insides out. I just feel this sense of freedom, and I think that’s a word I’ve probably used pretty consistently.”

While talking to Zach Sang on his “Just The Interviews” podcast, Miley also explained how with the release of new single “Midnight Sky,” this new era of music represents change in her life.

“I’m not sure I love change because change can be very painful. I have a very healthy relationship and acceptance of it, but I definitely am not like bring it on, because it frigging hurts sometimes,” she said. “This is just a chapter of my life. I feel like in general, as a culture, we’re all feeling like it’s time to express our own narrative and regain that control of who we are and what’s acceptable to us and what is not. I think in times, that’s maybe why I’ve created worlds like this. This is kind of my idea of living with my head in the clouds of my own fantasy and the world that I want to create.”
