Ronan Keating wants to lead a stress-free life

London: Boyzone star Ronan Keating says he had a terrible few years following the loss of bandmate Stephen Gately and split from his wife Yvonne.

The 35-year-old singer said the losses have hit him hard and he wants to be in a place where he has no stress in his life, reported Contactmusic.

"I`ve broken down and I`ve had times where I`ve had to retreat. I`m only human. I`ve failed at certain things and learnt a lot and I`ve been through things that I wouldn`t wish on my worse enemy.

"Some things I created myself, other things have just ended up on my lap and there was nothing I could do. The amount of stress I`ve dealt with over the past few years is a terrible thing and it makes you sick. I want to live a life with no stress and real happiness," he said.
