In the midst of her divorce from estranged spouse Matthew Lawrence, Cheryl Burke spoke candidly about the advantages of living by herself.
‘DWTS’ Stars Carrie Ann Inaba and More Honor Cheryl Burke Despite Divorce
The Dancing With the Stars pro, 37, shared via Instagram on Sunday, March 6: “I’ve realized that whenever I am at a point in my life where I have some big emotions to process, the best thing for me to do is to spend some time alone — other than being with [my dog] Ysa, of course, but I truly feel like she is a part of me, so she doesn’t count.” “If I’m being honest, I’ve never fully felt my feelings before.”
The ballroom dancer admitted that she had felt “numb” to her emotions for her “entire life up to this point” and that she is now “finding that genuinely going through them is A LOT harder” than she anticipated.
During her divorce, Cheryl Burke claims that “being alone” is the “best thing” for her.
Matthew Lawrence and Cheryl Burke. It’s difficult for the apparent reason that my current emotions are confused and not particularly joyful, she continued. The less obvious cause, however, is that I’m becoming more aware of my propensity to criticize my own emotions, which intensifies when I’m with other people. I tend to become preoccupied with how other people see me when I’m expressing my feelings, which makes me wonder if I am doing so in the “correct way.”
The Ups and Downs of Cheryl Burke and Matthew Lawrence’s Relationship:
She acknowledged that she wasn’t “the only person” who had such a tendency, but she also said that it was challenging to change that behavior. Burke stated that “being alone for a few days has been the best thing” for her as she continues to work through her highs and lows, adding, “I advise anyone else out there to try it and not feel bad for having that space.”
Following the filing of her divorce from Lawrence, 42, last month, the former Dance Moms star has been open about her mental state. Burke sought to dissolve the couple’s marriage after almost three years, according to a February 23 Us Weekly report. The couple split up on January 7 after spending the holidays together, according to court documents acquired by Us.
As news of her split spread, Burke continued to ask her followers for discretion, writing on Instagram on February 24: “I know I’ve always said I’m an open book with you guys, and I do strive to be, but in writing this I’ve realized there really isn’t an easy way to announce that my marriage is ending.”
For his part, the Boy Meets World alum has not yet commented on the divorce in the media. However, an insider exclusively disclosed that the couple’s disagreement before divorcing had nothing to do with “having babies.”
Burke and Lawrence told Us that the COVID-19 situation had put their family-planning efforts “on hold” nearly a year after they said “I do” in May 2019.
In April 2020, the actor said, “We’re just waiting to see what happens because I think we were going to move, we were going to start that next trip.” “I think we’ll have a better view or understanding when this starts to clear out.” I don’t know if becoming pregnant right now would be great for me, the California native who has been sober since 2018 commented at the time.
