The actress shared a profound quote from Lain Thomas to her Instagram Story on Tuesday, August 16.
The quote read, “And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, ‘This is important! You need to worry about this And this! And this!’ And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, ‘No. this is what’s important.’”
Shailene Shares Profound Message About The Heart
This message comes just a few months after she and her fiancé Aaron Rodgers split up.
The “Divergent” actress also shared how she was healing in an Instagram post from June.
She shared a selfie of herself laying in the grass with earbuds in.

Woodley captioned the photo, “to the month of june : putting macro whack world events aside for a minute, on a micro level, you nurtured this woman’s head + heart. you gave me oxygen in the form of friends, babies, trees, magic, DANCING, animals, salt, sun, deep conversations, six packs from laughing, availability in the form of tears, PLAY, sunrises, hallway tag, goofiness, spontaneity, pita bread (so much pita!), hellos and goodbyes. a beautiful wise italian in new york told me this would be the best month ever, and he was not wrong. (no shame shoutout: his name is dante sabatino + if you go to his website you may be stoked). (www.tarotbydante.com). god i’m grateful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Earlier this month, Rodgers doted on his ex-girlfriend, Danica Patrick, on the “Aubrey Marcus Podcast.”
This was a very rare and unexpected move for the football star.
Rodgers Doten On Ex-Girlfriend, Danica Patrick, After Shailene Split
Patrick is famous in her own right, as she is a former American professional racing driver. She is the most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel car racing. Her victory in the 2008 Indy Japan 300 is the only win by a woman in an IndyCar Series race, per Wikipedia.
Rodgers explained the two shared a mutual interest in spirituality.
“I was dating Danica, and that relationship was great for me because she is on her own journey and spirituality is important to her,” he explained. “We both were finding our way, learning about different things [and] practicing meditation techniques.”
The former couple started dating in 2018 and were very public with their relationship. They made their first public appearance as a couple at the Daytona 500 in February ’18.
She attended the ESPYS in July of that same year where they packed on major PDA.
However, two years after their love story began, it came to an end in July 2020.
A rep for Patrick confirmed the split in a statement which read, “I can confirm that Danica and Aaron are no longer together.”
Not long after their split, Rodgers was dating “The Fault In Our Stars Actress.” By February 2021, Rodgers and Woodley were engaged.
The former couple got together during quarantine, so their relationship was very “hush-hush.”
Rodgers announced the secret engagement during his MVP award speech at the 2020 NFL Honors.
Rodgers said, “2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change, growth, some amazing, memorable moments. One hundred-eighty straight days of having my nose hair scraped, a plan for very little fans or no stands the entire season, I got engaged, and I played some of the best football of my career.”
The couple sometimes posted each other on their social media accounts, but were rarely spotted in public together.
