    Ellie Goulding's music often addresses heartbreak. The British singer, who once dated DJ Skrillex, spoke about how she deals with and learns from heartbreak in a Cosmopolitan feature.

    Take note -- this advice might serve you well in the future, since heartbreak and heartache are a part of life.

    "To be in the present moment," she said about breakups. "A lot of the despair in breaking up with someone is thinking about how you're going to cope in the future. 'What's going to happen to me? Who am I going to find next? What am I going to do without him?' But not being completely present prevents you from being happy and alive. As soon as you stop relying so heavily on what happened in the past, you end up being able to deal."

    She also revealed that "I [used to] put men on a pedestal. They'd be everything." But she has changed that mentality and behavior, saying, "I decided to remedy that, and that's why I'm single now. I've realized I don't need a guy. I've got amazing, awesome, stupid friends in the best way possible. I don't rely on a guy for anything."

    Watch her behind-the-scenes footage from her Cosmo shoot below.
