    Courteney Cox revealed that they went for therapy to talk about their boundaries and things they can bear about each other. However, during the first minute of the therapy, McDaid broke up with Cox which caught her literally off-guard.

    She said, “I was like, ‘What? I was so shocked, I was in so much pain. I also don’t like surprises. And he’s an incredible human being, so he wasn’t trying to surprise. He was in that much pain in the relationship.”

    She continued, “There was that much that needed to be dealt with that he had to protect himself around his heart. So as opposed to like going, ‘F— him,’ getting in this mode of anger, I leaned in and I did the most work on myself by far.”

    According to Courtney, what he did was brave and indeed helped their relationship take a new fold. Cox added, “I learned how to reclaim my voice, boundaries, what were my motives in life – like what was my part in this. I’m so thankful for that break-up because a, when we got back together it was a different relationship, but also because it really taught me how I operated in the world – what were the things from my childhood that I needed.”

    Courteney claims to have great relationship dynamics with James now. According to her, this incident also prepared her to face anything difficult because nothing will hurt more than this.
