The duo parted ways recently after their hectic work schedules put a strain on their five-year-long relationship.
Scherzinger, 35, believes her breakup encouraged her rediscover herself.
"I'm just like every other woman, I've had a blanket of tissues over me many a night. Ordered a random, ginormous pizza for myself," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Scherzinger as saying.
"In any relationship, it's easy to lose yourself and it's important to come back to who you are. And you can live your life in freedom and happiness when you're happy with who you are.
"I definitely have my dark moments, but I want to be a light. That's what I strive to be. And really, it's a choice. And sometimes, when you're sad, you bring the pizza and you make that choice," Scherzinger added.
The "Don't hold your breath" singer believes the sudden breakup forced her to find her inner character again and concentrate on her work.
"It's these times that build a character. I've tried hard to keep it together, for my work," she said.
