Miley Cyrus has opened up about how she's learned to move on from things quickly, following a series of traumatic events.

In a new interview, the 27-year-old revealed she didn't cry very much over her divorce from Liam Hemsworth, as she'd also had to deal with losing her grandma and her house burning down in the same two year period.

After a decade together and eight months of marriage, the pair announced their divorce in August 2019, following their December 2018 wedding.

Asked whether she was becoming more or less emotional with age, Miley told Scandinavian talk show Skavlan (via MailOnline), "If you ask dudes I've broken up with they'll say less, but I think more. I would say that there's a stigma of coldness for a woman who actually, really moves on."

She continued, "I've gone through a lot of trauma and loss in the last couple years: I had a house fire in Malibu where I lost my house and went through a divorce recently, my grandma super close with, I lost.

"In a way, I didn't spend too much time crying over it and it wasn't because I was cold or trying to avoid feeling something but it was just because I wasn't going to change it. I tried to just continue to be active in what I can control, otherwise you just start feeling like you're trapped."

Speaking about how she helps herself to move on, Miley continued, "I heal through movement. I heal through travelling and meeting new people. As you lose one person, another person comes into your life.

"I think my feelings change really drastically all the time. Because every experience we have at every second changes the way that you perceive your life."

Kudos to Miley for being so candid and open: everyone heals in their own way, and it's not up to anyone else to decide how she should grieve.
