(CNN Spanish) — No one can stop Shakira, and she’s ready to face 2023 with lots of love and, most importantly, confidence.

The Colombian singer – who recently split from her long-term partner, Spanish soccer player Gerard Piqué – posted a heartwarming New Years messageor on his social networks, where he talks about moving forward against adversity. Does it sound cliche? Wait till you read it.

The artist said in her message – which could well be a song – that although “the wounds remain open”, it is necessary to leave him “everything at once”, because he says beautifully that he “has the hands of one.” surgeons”.

“Even if someone has betrayed us, we must continue to trust.
In the face of contempt, continue to value yourself.
‘Cause there are more good people than naughty ones
more empathetic than indolent people.
Less walking and more staying by our side,” Shakira wrote.

And he continues with a message about the present sadness and the future to come:

“Our tears are not wasted.
They irrigate the soil on which the future is born and make us more human
so you can keep loving amid heartbreak.

Shakira and Piqué confirmed their split in June 2022 after 12 years of dating.

The two met 12 years ago when the Catalan footballer appeared in the music video for Shakira’s song ‘Waka Waka’, the official song of the 2010 World Cup. They have two children: Milan, born in 2013, and Sasha, 2015.

Months later, in September last year, the Colombian spoke publicly about her split from the footballer for the first time.

Shakira said her divorce proceedings and her problems with the Spanish Treasury were “probably the darkest period of my life”.

The Colombian is facing a case over alleged tax fraud against the Spanish judiciary, which is asking for more than 8 years in prison (she denies all the allegations and told ELLE it is “a matter of principle” to go to court). In addition, his father, who is one of his greatest emotional supports, suffered falls in the past year that resulted in bruises and broken bones; plus the breakup with Piqué and the situation his children are suffering as a result.

“But I think women are resilient, you know?” he added to Spanish magazine Elle

“I’m dealing with that, I think, by reminding myself that I have to be a role model for my kids, that I have to be what they want me to be and what I want them to be,” recalled Shakira, who that said when she felt he had no strength and “as if he had no legs”, he took them out to write songs and so he felt like resuscitating.
