Katy Perry recently opened up about the challenges she has faced in her relationship with Orlando Bloom.
The couple has been together since 2016 and has a one-year-old daughter named Daisy Dove Bloom.
However, they have also had their fair share of ups and downs. In March 2017, the couple split up for some time before getting back together in 2018.
They eventually got engaged in February 2019.
Perry recently shared that couples therapy has helped her and Bloom maintain a healthy relationship.
“Your partners usually see your best and a lot of your worst sides because they’re there to be your mirrors,” Perry said.
“Orlando and I do couples therapy, and we love it because it keeps us in tune, and the resentment can get really strong when you’re both working hard.
And God bless successful people in the spotlight, and so when you want to come back to being normal in a domesticated world where you have a child and stuff like that, you have to really learn how to be kind of different out there in the big and in the small.
And so we’ve had a lot of success with that couples therapy.”
During a recent interview, Perry also discussed a retreat she and Bloom have both attended called the Hoffman Process.
“I went to this place—I’m sure you’ve heard of it—called the Hoffman Process,” she said.
“And I went there. Orlando went before me.”
She explained that this retreat had been particularly helpful in getting over a rough patch in their relationship.
Perry had previously broken up with Bloom because she felt the relationship had lost its spark.
“It became boring, and I was like, ‘We’re breaking up then,’” Perry said. “And then I had the worst year of my life—not just because of relationships but a lot of different things were changing and shifting for me in which I really truly believe was an opportunity for me to evolve and grow.
It was like, here we are at the fork in the road. Are you going to take the L or are you going to take the R?”
It was during this difficult period that Perry decided to give the Hoffman Process a try.
“You have no cell phone and you just go kind of deep through exercises with other people actually, which is great because they trigger you the whole time and then you work through those triggers,” she said.
“But basically, it’s a place you get to go to where you rewire the neuro-pathways in your mind and you get to discover.
There’s so much awareness.
You get to discover why you have these patterns and habits and where they’re coming from and all it’s really coming from Mom or it’s coming from Dad.
So if you’re yelling, who yelled at you? It’s a learned thing. It profoundly changed my life.
It’s the number one thing I recommend when someone is ready for that next level in life.”
Perry’s experience with the Hoffman Process has been life-changing.
She highly recommends it to others who are looking to take their life to the next level.
During an interview in 2017, before their reconciliation had been confirmed, Bloom and Perry attended an Ed Sheeran concert in Los Angeles.
Perry shared her thoughts on relationships, saying, “I think people are in and out of your life.
It’s nice to keep people you love around you.”
Perry’s relationship with Bloom has had its ups and downs, but they have worked hard to maintain their bond.
Through couples therapy and personal growth retreats, they have been able to find success in their relationship.
They are a great example of the hard work that goes into making a relationship work.
