Aaron Rodgers is mostly silent about his personal life and the issues he goes through. He keeps his private and professional life separate from each other to keep his mental peace. However, in a recent interview, the Green Bay Packers QB opened up about his challenging journey, self-love, and mental health. He also got candid about his family issues.

For a long time, Rodgers has estranged his family because of what he believes his family thought of him. But as he realizes what works for his mental health, he is accepting the issues he has had with his family. Moreover, his fallout with his brother amidst his dating life with Shailene Woodley also piled up the troubles.
