How Emma Watson overcame ‘horrendous’ breakup with Matthew Janney

In an interview with Vogue UK, Emma Watson revealed that she went on a silent retreat in order to move on when the year-long romance with Matt Janney fizzled.

The 25-year-old English actress started dating the Oxford Rugby star on January 2014 as they were first linked after being spotted vacationing in the Carribean. Their relationship ended in December the same year.

It was believed that the couple went separate ways due to the actress’ ‘unrelenting schedule’.

Albeit endings are part of the natural order of things, breakups can be very heartbreaking, depending on how the relationship ends. While others manage to end their relationship with a nice talk and in a peaceful manner, some just end up ‘horrendously’.

Due to emotional distraught, conflicts left hanging in the air, dissatisfaction and a caboodle of other factors, sometimes the love that bonds a relationship loosens. If what is left of the relationship is no longer worth saving, then the relationship ends.

People have different ways of healing themselves from a breakup. Most people drown their feelings – in ice-cream, chocolate or The Notebook. Not Emma Watson. For the 25-year-old Perks of Being a Wallflower star, silent retreat was better than drowning her sorrow or lashing out.

"I felt really uncomfortable," she said. "I went on a silent retreat in Canada's Rocky Mountains to help me come to terms with the breakdown of the relationship."

Watson was reportedly at a private facility in Canada’s Rocky Mountains where she took a week-long vow of silence.
