When a guy slides into your DM’s your reaction is usually something like this:
But when a fan messaged Rihanna asking how she handles heartbreak, the singer was more like this:
Everyone knows that breakups can be painful. And with Rihanna’s past relationships and even imagined relationships (people are practically begging her to hook up with Jessie Williams now that he’s single) being a constant topic of conversation, it is nice to see that she has a healthy way of dealing with heartbreak. It’s even nicer that Queen RiRi is willing to share that advice with us peasants.
When @WaladShami reached out to Rihanna asking for relationship advice, the singer responded with some heartfelt advice that rivals only that of the drunk girl that you meet in the bathroom on a night out. You know, the one who after five gin and tonics manages to convince you that you’re too good for your boyfriend? Rihanna is that girl.
“How did you get over your first heart-break? I’ve been struggling,” the fan DM’d the singer.
And a few hours later, Rihanna responded. First, she dropped some wisdom, “Just believe that the heartbreak was a gift in itself!”
And then, after letting her fan know it’s perfectly okay to cry, she dropped some words of encouragement. “You will find love again, and it will be even more beautiful! In the meantime enjoy all that YOU are!!!!”

Speaking of Rihanna’s relationships, here’s a timeline of Rihanna’s most infamous relationship.
