“It has been an interesting journey so far, to say the least,” Cheryl admitted in the video. “It’s been scary because I’m so used to pushing through because of my athleticism and dancing in general. And as a competitor, you learn to push forward, even if it hurts — which means you’re not listening to your actual body.”

“I’ve taken initiative, and my intention has been to really try and feel my feelings and, more importantly, not judge my feelings while I’m feeling them,” she continued.

Cheryl didn’t offer up any more information about the reasons behind the divorce but said that she just needed time to really feel her feelings. And most fans seem really willing to get behind that.

“Growing up as a dancer and then being in the public eye, body image has played a huge role in my life and, to be honest, is something I still struggle with at times, just like any other woman,” the 37-year-old captioned another Instagram video. “Going into a New Year, I know there is a lot of messaging out there focused on the way our bodies look and it can be easy to get sucked into a trap of body dysmorphia. So, thought I would share a little bit about my own experiences with you guys and some of the strategies I’ve learned to help when those thoughts creep into your head, in case any of you can relate. Here’s to a HEALTHY 2022 ♥️”
