Danica Patrick ‘Learned A lot’ After Her Split From Aaron Rodgers
The couple had reportedly been on course for a potential marriage, so when the split occurred, it came out of the blue. During an episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls, she spoke on how she had to pull herself together. She said: “I think we learn the most about ourselves through relationships, but there’s nothing like heartbreak to really throw you in the deep end of that.
“But I’ve learned a lot, and as broken, open as I was on the sad end, I have felt so much joy in so many more instances.” Unlike Aaron’s strained familial ties, Danica had the benefit of her parents. They did not only support their daughter in pursuing a career as a racing driver that is notoriously a male-dominated sport. Her healing was also aided, in part, by the strong family around her.
She added: “[My dad is] always super proud of me. My mom too. My sister. I’m really fortunate that I have a family that’s super supportive. You gotta have someone you can fall apart with, you know?” Although Aaron has moved on since then, with Shailene Woodley, Danica has still been happy for them. She has harboured no ill-will towards the couple and has been busy focusing on herself. This was most evident when she recently took a trip to Egypt.
Danica was very open with her fans, as she explored the country’s culture and focused on the various temples in a bid to expand on her spirituality. And with that experience, she knows exactly what she wants from her life. During a previous interview, 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 is great to see Danica putting those painful memories behind her. While she has not settled down with anyone yet, given she knows what she wants, it is only a matter of time.
