Shakira Shares Message About Overcoming Betrayal Seven Months After Announcing Split From Gerard Piqué

"The ones who leave are fewer than the many who stay by our side."

Shakira is entering 2023 with an open heart and good vibes, after her split from long-term love footballer Gerard Piqué in 2022.

The pair met in 2010 while filming the music video for Shakira’s World Cup song Waka Waka. They share two sons together, Milan and Sasha, who they now co-parent.

Although Shakira has been open about her struggle with the heartbreak, she has shared an uplifting message with her Instagram followers heading into 2023, posting a screenshot from her notes app on Instagram she wrote, “Even if our wounds are still open in this new year, time has a surgeon’s hands.

“Even if someone’s betrayed us, we must continue to trust others. When faced with contempt, continue to know your worth. Because there are more good people than indecent ones. More people with empathy than indifference.

“The ones who leave are fewer than the many who stay by our side. Our tears are not in vain, they water the soil our future will spring from and make us more human, so that even while suffering heartache we can continue to love.”

Speaking to Elle in September Shakira referenced the breakdown of her relationship as, “the darkest hours of my life”, and admitted it is hard for her to talk about.

When announcing their split, the couple released a statement on social media that read, “We regret to confirm that we are separating. For the well-being of our children, who are our highest priority, we request respect for our privacy. Thank you for your understanding.”

Shakira spent Christmas with her sons in the “desert” sharing a snap of the three of them on Christmas day with the caption, “In the desert this Christmas, searching for serenity.”

We hope serenity was found! And hope we see a lot of Shakira’s good vibes in 2023, perhaps some new music inspired by her healing? We will have to wait and see!
