The Fish Wrapper is reporting that Chris Martin recently spoke out in an interview about his “Conscious Uncoupling” with Gwyneth Paltrow.
“About two years ago I was a mess — really because I can’t enjoy the thing that we are good at and I can’t enjoy the great things around me because I’m burdened by this. … I’ve got to not blame anyone else and make some changes. I wouldn’t use the word breakdown; this was more a realization about trying to grow up basically. If you can’t open yourself up, you can’t appreciate the wonder inside. So you can be with someone very wonderful, but because of your own issues you cannot let that be celebrated in the right way,” Chris Said
Adding, “What changed for me was — I don’t want to go through life being scared of it, being scared of love, being scared of rejection, being scared of failure. … Up to a certain point in my life I wasn’t completely vulnerable and it caused some problems. … If you don’t let love really in then you can’t really give it back.”
I’ve sort of been wondering what Chris Martin had to say about the now famous “Conscious Uncoupling” but I never expected him to speak out. After all he’s been known to be very private. But here he is in all his glory giving us “his side” so to speak.
I think he just made me like him even more!
