Cheryl Burke shed new light on the molestation she experienced as a child during TLC's documentary Breaking the Silence on Sunday.
"I still go through times when I'm down," Burke revealed. "I don't feel like I'm that strong woman that people think I am today."
Added the the former Dancing with the Stars pro: "I'm only human, and sometimes the stuff I've gone through, I think about all the time, and it just brings me back."
Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and Jill (Duggar) Dillard appeared on TLC's documentary Breaking the Silence Sunday, seeking education to address the aftermath of the abuse they faced at the hands of brother Josh Duggar more than a decade ago.
The Duggar sisters' mother Michelle also participated in the sexual abuse prevention training seminar given by Darkness to Light, one of the nation's leading organizations for abuse prevention, in the wake of confirmation this past May that Josh, now 27, molested five underage girls when he was still a teenager. (His two sisters came forward as two of the victims during a conversation with Fox News's Megyn Kelly in early June.)
"I was so glad that my girls and I were able to do this together and that we could just be a support and encouragement to each other to be able to gain more information about this important topic," said Michelle, 48.

Jessa, 22, noted, "I feel like this should be a discussion people are having, even regularly. I think that it shouldn't be a taboo subject, that we should be bringing awareness to child sexual abuse and talking about this."
The seminar was especially meaningful for Jessa, who is expecting her first child on Nov. 1, and she said she learned "things I can do to be more aware, things I can do to set up boundaries and safeguards for my child and children, hopefully, in the future."
In classic fashion, Sunday's episode of Bachelor in Paradise kicked off with some good old Samantha-Joe drama.
Samantha, who had said yes to a date with Justin the night before, mysteriously changed her mind the next morning, deciding she wouldn't be going on the date and that she wanted to get back together with Joe. (Keep in mind she had just dumped him on his birthday.) Joe, of course, was so over-the-moon at her sudden change of heart that he didn't think for a second that she might flip-flop on him again. Spoiler alert: She did, and it wasn't pretty.
Considering how gracefully Caitlyn Jenner has handled her rapid rise to transgender icon status, it's a funny thing to be reminded that there have been stumbling blocks in her path.
Case in point: A facet of Jenner's transition that many would consider to be pretty basic (not to mention one that has been hotly speculated) remained a mystery – even to Jenner herself – during the latest episode of I Am Cait. "We have no idea what the future holds," she told her "hot as hell" pal Candis Cayne, "and that's kind of the exciting thing."

Josh Duggar won't be dodging flying dishes any time soon.
When his wife Anna learned that her husband of seven years had been cheating on her and concealing his pornography addiction, it's likely her voice never even raised above a whisper.
"She doesn't get mad," a source close to the Duggars tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week's issue. "You are not allowed to get mad. It's not godly for a woman."
