Danica Patrick has taken some time to reflect after breaking up with Aaron Rodgers. On her Instagram Stories on Saturday, the 38-year-old former professional race-car driver and star shared deep and thought-provoking quotes about relationships. Interesting enough, the timing of the posts came just a day after news broke that she and Aaron Rodgers split.
Danica’s post read, “Look at the chosen relationship in your life and notice any themes,” – this was a quote by Vienna Pharaon, a licensed family and marriage therapist.
The message continued, asking questions like what role you play, who you are with them, who you believe you need to be, what stories you tell yourself about what they can offer you, and what they can or can’t handle. The message also noted that the way you choose people may offer you valuable insight into what shifts you may need to make in order to shift an overworked role that you’ve held for a long time or what you’re craving.
Another insightful quote by relationship coach Connor Beaton was shared by the 38-year-old star.
The quote read that “The pain that we are given is the pain that we pass on.”
Both Instagram Stories have since expired at this time. On Sunday, however, Danica uploaded a photo of her dogs, captioning that Ella wanted to give everyone a Sunday smile.
After nearly two years together, news broke om Friday that Danica and the 36-year-old NFL player decided to call it quits. In the fall of 2017, the pair began dating, and after they packed on the PDA at the 2018 Daytona race track, the two made their romance officially official.
While the duo has yet to announce their breakup publicly, a rep for the retired NASCAR driver confirmed to E! News that the couple are “no longer together.”
To fans, the pair’s breakup comes as a surprise especially after rumors whirled that the Green Bay Packers quarterback was actually getting ready to propose. The athletes were already living together in the NFL star’s home in Malibu, Calif, according to Variety.- Advertisement -
Aaron was planning on proposing last March and it’s a matter of when and not a matter of if. At the time, the source shared that Aaron has become less private about his relationship because he’s really proud to have Danica by his side, adding that the couple are completely committed and smitten to each other, and that they’re in it for the long haul.
All good things, however, must come to an end, and it looks like the duo both decided that it was best to go on their separate ways.
