Danica Patrick has seemingly been putting an increased importance on being in touch with her emotions following her high-profile split from Aaron Rodgers.
On Saturday, the former NASCAR driver took to social media to share some quotes that related to relationships and feeling pain in life, one of which even came from licensed marriage and family therapist Vienna Pharaon, a well-respected entity in the psychiatric field focusing on issues similar to those that have been transpiring in the racing star’s life.
“Look at the chosen relationship in your life and notice any themes. What role do you play? Who are you with them? Who do you believe you need to be? What stories do you tell yourself about what they can offer you? What can they or can’t they handle?” The first quote posted by the athlete read, discussing taking count of how the relationships you maintain with others feed into your daily energy, as well as how you feed into others energy.
“The way you choose people may offer you insight into what you’re craving or what shifts you may need to make in order to shift an overworked role you’ve held for a long time,” the quote continued to read, elaborating on the significance the choices in our company makes.
Patrick also shared a quote from relationship coach Connor Beaton, referencing being in tune with your “gut feeling” and using it to guide your decisions moreso than other less personal extraneous life factors.
“Listen to your body,” the NASCAR phenom wrote under the post. “You know the saying ‘gut feeling?’ I have found it speaks to me before the mind. I take it as an invitation to stop and look within. I journal and ask — what could be going on?”
“The pain that we are given is the pain that we pass on,” the quote continued to read, seeking to intervene in negative thought processes and combat bad energy before it can be transferred to others.
Reports that Patrick and Rogers had split initially surfaced after the former unfollowed the NFL star on her social media channels. Following that assumption, a representative for Patrick confirmed the news to ‘FOX’, saying that the couple is “no longer together.”
The pair began dating publicly back in January of 2018 after meeting roughly six years earlier. Despite teasing the possibility of marriage over the last year or so, it appears the spark fizzed out between the two sporting stars before it could manifest.
