Stellar Award-winning  artist and gospel royalty star  Kierra Sheard has triumphed publicly in her career while struggling privately in her relationships. Now the 28-year-old is getting real about a deeply personal hurt she went through at the hands of an ex-boyfriend.

On November 25 she shared a deeply personal post on her blog.

She wrote in her blog:

‘Went to the store today and spotted him with another woman in the store. It stung a little I wanted to cry but I didn’t. It’s almost like I’ve become immune to disappointment. He was coming out with a huge bottle of 40. Something that I hate. At first he wasn’t even going to speak to me. Then I pulled around and I wanted to run him over. It all ran through my mind, but I kept driving. I see that he’s just not it and though there aren’t any guys in my life that are keeping my attention I might as well make it up in my mind to just let him go! Maybe this is time that I need to get to know me. on second thought, I shouldn’t need distractions to keep my mind off of someone who treats me so bad. This reveals to me that I have a problem with myself. It’s time to release all toxic relationships, or people who no longer compliment my purpose in life. If there is absolutely no characteristic of heaven in my relationships, I no longer want the hell that comes with it. I’m making a promise to myself to even build a better relationship with myself. I don’t want them to have space in my life nor will I allow them to have any mental space. I’m not happy with him. He doesn’t bring me happiness; I don’t even find rest there anymore. He brings me fear and worry. The bible says that Love casts out all fear but this “love” is causing fear and anxiety.’

Kierra has always credited herself with being honest with young gospel fans.This may be one of the best teaching moments she could provide. Kierra closed her post with a follow-up lesson.

She wrote:

Things I wrote while still learning. I hope this helps someone to release whatever isn’t for them. I pray that you handle your business with class because 2 years before this, I would have chased him with the car. Relationships could be healthy, if we became healthy individuals before connecting. This was all apart of my growth.

The vocalist,  just released her new LED EP Nov. 20 and  has made a vow to “even build a better relationship with myself.”
