Kristen, it must be torture for you to know that your “soul mate” Robert Pattinson is dating your former co-star/ friend, Riley Keough. But unfortunately, you have to keep your lips zipped and your heart focused on the future.
Kristen Stewart, We Understand You’re Hurt
It sucks — big time! There’s just no other words for it. You can’t make your own deep feelings and yearning for Robert Pattinson go away just like that,even though he has been able to move on from you.
So you’re stuck with a broken heart, while he’s in the giddy throes of excitement and passion that come with being in the start of a hot new relationship.
And in this case, according to the Daily Mail, he’s reportedly dating and “inseparable” from actress Riley Keough, 24, who co-starred with you in The Runaways and even came to your 23rd birthday party on April 9.
It must feel like a dagger to your heart. He’s seeing a young woman who you know and reportedly even feel like you mentored.
Not only that — she also looks a whole lot like you! Rob definitely has a type!
Thanks goodness you are thousands of miles away from L.A. right now, looking stunning, attending some of the Paris Couture fashion shows.
You looked amazing in short shorts at the Chanel show on June 2. Of course you met and did a photoshoot with Karl Lagerfield, the renowned designer for Chanel, on a previous trip to Paris on Jan 30, 2012.
Kristen — Don’t Let Rob & Riley’s Relationship Get To You
Now, reportedly you are “livid” at Rob for dating Riley, who you had been friends with and you are “devastated” that Rob has moved on from your very serious and almost five-year relationship.
You are apparently letting Rob know through friends that you feel “violated” after everything you two shared together, for all that time.
Plus, you feel betrayed by Riley, who you no doubt feel is breaking “girl code” by getting involved with the ex of a friend — namely you!
Kristen, we totally sympathize with you, and we would feel the same way.
It Will Get Easier, Kristen
But, we also want you to retain your dignity and to know that no matter how badly your heart hurts right now, you will feel better in time. You will recover from the hurt of losing Rob and having him fall in love with someone else.
In the meantime Kristen, you need to go radio silent with him. Don’t call him, don’t text him, don’t let him know anything more about your feelings or activities. Don’t let him hear a word from you or about you, aside from when he sees in the press.
You need to send the silent message that you have moved on too, and that you are just fine. In fact, you are more than fine. That’s because you will be!
Then you have to lean heavily on your family and close friends. Lean on the ones that love you and let them comfort you, take care of you and distract you in every possible way!
The get busy being busy. You’re already doing a good job of that — being in Paris, and before that, going on a road trip with your girlfriends to Tennessee.
Do Let Your Career Be Your Obsession Right Now
Just keep at it and hopefully, one of the several films you’re shceduled to shoot — Camp X Ray, Sils Maria, The Big Shoe, and then Snow White and the Huntsman 2, will require you to start work soon.
You just gave an interview to Women’s Wear Daily in which you enthused about your upcoming role in the drama Sils Maria, in which you play a personal assistant to a successful and powerful actress, played by Juliette Binoche, 49.
The only thing is that the film could have its awkward moments since Rob’s best friend, Tom Sturridge, also stars in the film, and Juliette, co-starred with Rob, playing one of his lovers in Cosmopolis. Yikes!
Well, KStew, you’ll have to put on your best acting in front of Tom!
But in the meantime Kristen, try not to replay the darker times in your romance with Rob over and over.
Yes, the world knows about the terrible mistake you made when you had your affair with Rupert Sanders, and maybe you feel that you’d still be with Rob if hadn’t happened. But you really don’t know that.
Rob may have felt the relationship had run its course even if you had never strayed for a second.
Ultimately, he simply may not have felt that you were his “soul mate” in the same way that you felt about him.
Focus On You, Kristen
In any case, Rob’s feelings are not under your control. He’s going to feel and do what he wants.
You can only control how you respond to the current situation, and you just need to know that one day, you will not feel as broken-hearted as you do today. One day, you will meet another man that you will connect with so deeply and intensely that you will completely forget about Rob.
That man will be your real true “soul mate” for life.
And guess what, you don’t know how the romance between Riley and Rob will ultimately end up.
It could fizzle out fast and could end up just making him realize how much he misses the real deal he had with you!
Who knows! But you can’t wait or hope for that to happen. No, you’re a smart, talented, loving, giving and gorgeous woman with a wonderful life ahead.
Just keep moving forward and you’ll make it happen!
