The 23-year-old actor revealed she spoke with a therapist, who offered advice she couldn't help but relate to.
"My therapist told me, ‘Your body's going through withdrawal from love. You're used to having this exchange of happy chemicals between you and the person that you're with.’"
"In moments of my life, I have dropped every ounce of pride that I had just to be like, 'Love me. Please take the pain away for a day, a second, an hour, just so I can feel that fix again.'”
And while Lili admits that she's still healing, she's been able to keep herself preoccupied with other projects, like her new movie Chemical Hearts and her first book of poetry called Swimming Lessons.
Lili writes of grief, a broken heart, and more in Swimming Lessons, calling it the "most vulnerable thing" she's ever done...which is probably why she's a little concerned about how the poems will be received.
"I felt the need to write that because I was scared — and I am scared — that people are going to try and create their own idea of what my love life looked or looks like. I'm not saying my boyfriend fucked another woman. I'm saying, I felt betrayed.”
Soon after her Refinery29 interview went live, Lili tweeted these statements to further clarify the topics they discussed.
