Maybe she was strong and independant around you because the dynamic between you two asked for it.
Also, if she felt you would not be really interested in her problems, she would have kept them to herself probably. Now that she is your ex and no longer with you, she feels like she can be honest again.
Do you consider her weak now that she is talking about her true feelings to others?
If the answer is "yes" , well that just proves my point.
