Shakira is optimistic about love for the coming year despite her highly publicized split from ex-husband Gerard Pique in 2022. On the first day of 2023, the 45-year-old posted a message to her fans on Instagram about time and healing. The pop star from Colombia spoke about healing wounds after going through “heartache” in her dreadful breakup. As she wrote an Instagram post on Sunday about getting over her betrayal on New Year’s Day, she appeared to take a shot at her ex, Gerard Piqué. After 11 years of relationship, the Hips Don’t Lie fame singer and the former FC Barcelona player, who have two children together (Sasha, 7, and Milan, 9), announced their separation in June.
Shakira wrote about time and healing post-breakup!
Shakira seems optimistic about starting the New Year on a positive note, she wrote: “Even if our wounds are still open in this new year, the time has surgeon’s hands. Even if someone has betrayed us, we must continue to trust others. Although our wounds continue to be open in this new year, the time has surgeon’s hands.” Shakira penned the following in a letter that was written in both English and Spanish: “Even if someone has betrayed us, we have to keep trusting. In the face of contempt, keep valuing yourself. Because there are more good people than bad people.”
She thinks that our tears strengthen us as people and nourish the ground from which the future will sprout, enabling us to love even when we are experiencing heartbreak. “Our tears are not a waste,” the Girl Like Me singer said in her concluding remarks.
The message seems to carry a cryptic message for her ex Gerard Pique, who allegedly cheated on her with a much younger PR student, Clara Chia Marti
