While on the road to becoming more herself, Sheryl endured physical and emotional anguish...often, in the public spotlight.
When news of Sheryl and Lance's breakup began making headlines, she says it was particularly hard because she's a very private person.
"My relationships in the past are not dissimilar than the relationships that [most people] have," she says. "They're great, and then when they fall apart, you're hurt and you get through it. Unfortunately for me, we know who the other person is oftentimes."
Sheryl dealt with the end of her relationship and learned an important lesson along the way. "Love doesn't stop," she says. "That's one of the things that I have learned...even though it's not perhaps a functional relationship, the love doesn't stop."
