“When I started sharing more, the pandemic was in full force, and a lot of people were falling down that dark hole," she writes."I also knew how intenseDWTSwas and knew it would be a struggle for AJ [McLean] as well, being newly sober. We had very open conversations about our pasts and I know that being under so much pressure on a show like that can be detrimental to your mental health and sobriety.” headtopics.com
Cheryl also wrote that her husband, Matthew Lawrence, was a big reason she decided to become sober. “I don’t think I would have done it if we hadn’t made the commitment to get married,” she said. “With him, I saw a bright future after losing my father, and I was able to come out of a dark place.”

Your relationships will change, but you’ll find new relationships, too. I’ve made a lot of new friends who are also wanting to evolve and grow into the best version of themselves like I am. When your perspective changes, you attract different people in your life.”

Mila Opened Up About Disagreeing With Ashton Over Her Parenting Decisions After She Told Their Six-Year-Old Daughter To Fight Back When She Was Pushed By Another Child'My daughter came back and was like, 'Such and such little kiddo pushed me.' And I instinctually said, 'Did you push her back?'' As the parent of a child who was bullied relentlessly through school I agree with her. If someone pushes you then push them back then remove yourself from the situation. I told my kids never to start anything but defending themselves is fair game! In the past, I would have leaned toward Ashton's point of view, but in hindsight, I kinda wanna agree with Mila.
