Danica Patrick reveals how her split from current NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers took a toll on her.
The 38-year-old former race car driver continued her life in the fast lane when she appeared on National Geographic’s “Running Wild with Bear Grylls” and told the survivalist she learned a lot about her – even during the public break.
“I think we learn the most about ourselves through relationships, but there’s nothing quite like heartbreak to really get you right in the thick of it,” Patrick said Monday in the final episode of the series, according to Yahoo! Entertainment. “But I’ve learned a lot and as broken as I was in the sad ending, I’ve felt so much joy in so many more cases and in so many places more unlikely than ever before, so it’s like my hearts had broken at both ends of the spectrum. “
Since the former couple announced last July that they were ending their two-year romance, Patrick has relied on meditation and his family to get by.

“[My dad is] still super proud of me, “she told Grylls.” My mom too. My sister. I am really lucky to have a family that supports me very well. You gotta have someone you can fall apart with, you know? “

Rodgers, 37, has since moved on with actress and now fiancée Shailene Woodley, 29. The current “Jeopardy!” the guest host and “Divergent” star announced their engagement in February. They also visited Disney World earlier this month.
Meanwhile, Patrick is enjoying her life and said in a recent interview on “The Tamron Hall Show” that she will not falter when it comes to the qualities she is looking for in her next partner.

“When you know what you don’t want, you know what you want,” said Patrick. “… So maybe it’s not necessarily that they have their work cut out for them, but that they’re going to be a very high quality person with a lot of boxes to tick.”

“It’s just that I know what I want now, and I’m not ready to compromise, to bend so much, right?”
