Kierra Sheard is Not Married! Single and Motivated With No Boyfriend Issues

Marriage is a strong commitment and a matured decision to take. Most couples rarely reach the phase of making that determination.

Love Life, Engagement, Boyfriend Now?

Kierra Sheard - a singer and fashion designer - was engaged to Pastor Welton Smith back in 2011. She even revealed that she was going to get married and showed her engagement ring in a video. 

Kierra was close to embarking on a new journey of marriage by exchanging the vows to be husband and wife.

As the happy news spread, their joy came to a halt: Sheard's engagement with Smith broke down. However, the reason was kept confidential.   

Almost after three years since the wedding was called off, she happened to run into her ex-boyfriend accidentally, but he was with another woman. She wrote in her blog that,  

"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." 

Her post in the blog reflected that she still had some emotions left for him. Though he moved on, it seems she unconsciously wanted him back. But, she finally realized that he was not just made for her.

"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."

The 32-year-old Gospel music singer, Kierra Sheard's blog post clearly defined the previously broken relationship that seemed to be a turning point for her. 

It seems that she is happy and she didn't want to wait for his ex-fiance as he has already moved on.

"I [could have been] waiting forever, but for nothing. That's where my heart for my people comes in and it's attached to my career." 

Her blog post also had a little bit of irony when she added,

"I love to see people do better because I like to do better. It's so important that we don't attach ourselves to the wrong thing."

But it's worth noting that she has realized that attachment to "the wrong thing" is a mere waste of time. She was moving on, too! However, she remained single and encouraged other single people to pursue the road of God and love themselves.

Kierra, the daughter of Grammy Award-winning singer Karen Clark Sheard, headed on the emotional journey of examining self-love. Her painful journey didn't end here as she further aimed for weight loss through cosmetic surgeries. She shared,

"If I was able to lose 80 pounds on my own then surely I can trample over the doubts and lack of self-discipline that I am currently experiencing. I am ready for this to be over and I cannot believe that I actually have staples in my arms, all for wanting to look a certain way."

She came from a legacy of gospel singers and follows the footsteps of her family to sing for the Lord. But she preferred to sing in a way that the new generation could appreciate and enjoy.
