It is not easy to make your exit from this generation's biggest boyband, One Direction. We know the past few weeks have really been difficult for the boys, especially for ex-1D member (it doesn't get any easier typing that out, JSYK) Zayn Malik who's faced criticism for his decision of leaving the group among other things. So it's nice to see him just relaxing and taking a break from everything with his loved ones. After all, he's signed off from the tour for stress and made his exit from the band to be a normal 22-year-old.
A few hours ago, his fiancée, Little Mix's Perrie Edwards shared a snapshot of them enjoying a warm day outdoors in France.

7 Moments One Direction Was One Direction Because of Zayn Malik
Zayn's sister Elisha Malik also shared a lovely collage of them hanging out together.
We're still trying to make sense of every single thing that's happened lately and we may never fully understand Zayn's reasons for leaving, but somehow we still feel happy for him because he looks well-rested and relaxed after the big announcement was made. We just hope Zayn and the rest of the boys get the rest they need and deserve after all of these things. It surely is quite difficult to have your every move scrutinized by the whole world.
