Aaron Rodgers is now open to making amends with his estranged family. The Green Bay Packers superstar says he’s truly grateful for his upbringing and holds no resentment over the fallout.
Rodgers had a rift between his parents and two brothers several years ago. The separation was explained during Aaron’s brother Jordan’s appearance on “The Bachelorette” in 2016 and the estrangement was never explained.
Aaron is now opening up about where things stand with his family. He went into detail on Aubrey Marcus Podcast to say the relationship with them is not permanently damaged.
“I do believe in healing and I believe in the possibility of reconciliation at some point,” “But, it’s a different journey for all of us, and to judge on the outside about what should be or what it should look like, or who’s wrong or who’s right is just a game I’ve never wanted to play and still don’t want to play.”
“The most important thing for me is deep love and gratitude for them, and for the lessons I learned, and for the way I was raised, and hope for the future.”
“But, who knows what that future is gonna look like, when it’s gonna look like, when time is gonna come.”
“But, I have no bitterness in my heart. I have no resentment,” Rodgers continued. “I just have deep love and appreciation for the lessons that I learned, and the fact that if I hadn’t been raised that way — all the good and all the frustrating — there’s no way I’d be sitting here today.”
Rodgers had previously stated he spent time “with my folks” for his birthday in 2018. Last reported in January 2022 that he still does not speak with his family. Let’s hope everything is fully repaired in that family.
