So, we couldn't help but wonder how the blonde beauty is doing during this rough time.

You've been warned about the tissues, people!
"We talked about a lot of things. We talked about children and what we would look like when we grew old and who would be fat and how we would stay thin. We talked about where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. We were done. We were it. When you're at that place in your life with someone, you talk about everything. But today I feel like I was given the best part of Cory and I'm thankful for that."
And even though she's not ready right now, Lea does realize she'll need to reenter the dating scene, sooner or later, but it will be on her own time and at a pace she's comfortable with:
"I've only ever had serious relationships so it's an adjustment putting myself back into a place of being alone. And I was under a Cory Monteith spell…it'll take time to readjust my mind and I'm really not wanting to do that right now. I feel like it's so important to make sure that I'm 100% OK before I can get into a relationship. But people have to understand that I can't be alone forever. Cory wouldn't want that."
She's so strong, isn't she?!
We admire you, Lea!
