On BARBARA WALTERS' "Most Fascinating People" special, MILEY CYRUS talks about her breakup with LIAM HEMSWORTH and how she's not afraid to be single anymore.
She says, "I was so scared of ever being alone, and I think, conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had, this entire year.
"I don't ever want to have to need someone again, where you feel like, without them, you can't be yourself."
Still, she doesn't regret anything . . . "I don't think I realized what 19 truly is, and I got engaged at 19, and I definitely wouldn't change being engaged. It was so fun wearing a fat rock for a few years.
"But now, I just feel like I can actually be happy. I wait for those moments of silence, when I'm just at my house, by myself."
