These days, Cheryl Burke couldn’t be happier to be happy, healthy, and free. The former DWTS pro gave fans a life update on social media this week.

“I’m getting a lot of questions about how I’ve been doing lately and what’s been going on, so wanted to check in with you all,” the 38-year-old began her lengthy Instagram post. “If I could describe how I feel in one word I honestly couldn’t.

Cheryl went on to describe how she deals with crippling anxiety some days, while on others she feels completely at peace.

“Today, I am proud to say that I am alone, not lonely, and though the past year had its challenges I feel so much pride in knowing that I got through it all by myself. … Normally, I would have jumped straight into another relationship, found a rebound or two, and gone out with my friends 7 nights a week while numbing by using and abusing alcohol however, this time, I choose a different path. A clearer path, a more conscious path.”

Through all of the ups and downs, and ‘the work’ I’ve done on myself, I find comfort in knowing that the only person who can fill up my cup, is ME. And for the first time, I can genuinely say that, I LOVE ME!”
