In a new Apple interview, Zane Lowe asked Harry, "Do you keep an eye on your friends who were in the band?" and the 28-year-old superstar responded: "Yeah. You know I look at people who kind of went through some version of what we went through but on their own. And I'm like, I can't imaging having done that."
He added: "I feel really lucky that we always had each other to be this unit that felt like you could keep each other in check and have someone else who gets its. It's impossible to not at times feel like, 'Oh everyone else is on the other side of the glass and no one really gets it'. Having that is priceless."
Zane then continued, "Do you feel like that's a bond that can't be broken?" and Harry said: "I feel like there's very much a respect between all of us. We did something together and that is something that you can't really undo. It's a very deep love for each other, I think."
Discussing his mental health while he was in the band, Harry said: "I kind of emotionally coasted. I didn't really feel anything. And we'd go through real highs in the band and stuff, and it would always just feel like a relief. Like, "Oh, we didn't fail. That feels like a massive relief."
Harry explained: "I never really felt like I celebrated anything. And I had a great time. Like, truly. And I think sometimes, with therapy as an example, is you open a bunch of doors in your house that you didn't know existed, you find all these rooms and you explore them."
He also said; "I used to feel really guilty for trying to protect the space around me and being defensive of it. And I felt like I was so concerned with people liking me, that I would kind of give up too much space around me that would affect me negatively."
Harry ended by saying: "Now I feel okay putting boundaries up. If I'm not spending time with people that I love and people who love me, I'd rather be on my own. I don't really have that need to be around people who don't positively affect each other."
