Danica Patrick: ‘I know What I Want Now And I’m Not Willing To Compromise’
In an interview with Tamron Hall, Danica stated how she is seeking to put herself first should any other relationship arise. She said: “When you know what you don’t want, you know what you do want. It’s not as though there are boxes to check; it’s just that I know what I want now and I’m not willing to compromise [or] bend as much.”
It seems Danica was still finding out who she was during her time with Aaron. She has since, then, taken time to explore the world more. She recently visited Egypt and immersed herself straight into the culture. During her trips, she was very philosophical about life, as evidenced by her Instagram photos which showcased numerous temples.
And she let her fans know what she took from the trip: that being, to be happy with yourself. She added: “I have processed and I have accepted the imperfections that exist within me. I now give permission for the other person to be imperfect, and I also don’t see their flaws as much. I use this reference because it’s mine.” And it seems Danica has learnt to be more patient with herself.
This was evident following her split, where she admitted to her fans that she had been looking at marriage therapy books. So when the decision to split from Aaron came, it was a huge shock given that they were contemplating marriage. Danica realised, though, that they were on different paths. As such, she has re-evaluated herself in a more positive light.
She continued: “I’m not triggered anymore. And so the person is not seen in such a judgmental light anymore, or I’m not judging myself. So, you know as you heal, you also are able to coexist with people in a much more, a much easier way.” It is good to see Danica being so comfortable with herself. And who knows, she may find her special someone very soon.
