Speaking last year, Avril admitted ‘relationships are not easy’ and said she had finally learned to ‘prioritize’ herself rather than relying on other people.
She told FAULT magazine: ‘Yes, love is hard and relationships are not easy. It’s not easy for anybody and I’ve now lived long enough to realize that I need to prioritize myself and take care of myself.
‘I went through a phase where I was like, “I’m gonna be independent and have time on my own for a minute…” And it really didn’t last that long!’ she said.
‘But when I started the album, I was definitely in the mindset of, “If I’m going to rely on anyone in this world, it’s going to be me.”‘
