Miranda Kerr covers the new issue of Elle Canada, and the supermodel chats candidly with the mag about her mental health struggles following her 2013 split from husband Orlando Bloom.

She's now engaged to Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel, but following her divorce, she was in a dark place. "When Orlando and I separated, I actually fell into a really bad depression," the Aussie model revealed. "I never understood the depth of that feeling or the reality of that because I was naturally a very happy person." Kerr added that she found her way out of her depression by learning that "every thought you have affects your reality and only you have control of your mind."

"The most important thing is that when he has his time with me, we have quality time together, and when he's with his dad, he has quality time with him," Kerr continued. "And it works out really well because I book in my photo shoots for the time he's with his dad, and the rest of the time I just get to be a mom."

"I have this philosophy that we should all be like willow trees — people think that in a big storm, the oak is the strongest tree, but it's actually the willow tree because it's very, very flexible," Kerr concluded. "What I have found is that everything you need, all of the answers are deep inside of you. Sit with yourself, take a few breaths and get close to your spirit."

We love her honesty and applaud her for speaking up about this!
