We can’t help but really feel for Hannah Brown!
The former Miss Alabama USA opened up a little bit about her experiences after The Bachelorette in a long, emotional post on Instagram late Monday night. To hear her tell it, life has changed a lot over the past year — and it hasn’t always been for the better.
The reality TV star shared a stunning pic of herself on what appears to be a lifeguard stand at the beach, looking off into the sunset while wearing a sexy little gold dress… but below, she penned about what’s going on inside.
Ch-ch-check out the pic (below):
Beautiful! The former pageant queen has always been a stunner!
She got real with it, too, revealing more about her mental state and what life has been like since The Bachelorette in a very eye-opening message in the caption (below):
“Honest policy: I’m struggling. Life is so different. Since last August, I’ve been a pageant queen, a bachelor contestant, and the Bachelorette. I’ve been in love with multiple people, I got engaged, I broke off an engagement, and I shared it all with millions of people. My faith has been questioned by thousands who don’t know my heart, and my transparency with my decisions has labeled me promiscuous. Simultaneously, I’ve become a role model for young women and started bigger conversations around faith, and sex. I’m living on my own for the first time and shuffling through this life of next steps with press, media, and opportunities galore.”
“I miss my friends and family that have watched my life explode. I feel guilty because I don’t have the time or emotional capacity to fill each of them in on my life right now. I can’t keep up with the people that matter most, because I can barely keep up with my own life right now. // I am not complaining about this past year of adventures. The woman who has emerged would shock the mirror-image young girl from a year ago. I have so many blessings to be thankful for. However it’s uncharted territory for me, and it’s been hard to really process what the heck is going on.”
She truly is going through it in the public eye:
“Maybe I needed write this out to remind myself I’m human and it’s okay to be overwhelmed. And maybe, I just needed to remind you guys too. Life is beautiful, but wild. I think it’s okay to be strong-to know you’re strong-but to still feel weak simultaneously. I believe that’s when the magic happens. My spirit has opportunity to grow and blossom from this place. Healing and restoration can happen. I can rest knowing that My Savior has compassion and wants to help and love me through this journey. I’ve just got to let Him. I don’t know if I have been lately— but I am now because honestly, I think I would give out if I didn’t. So yeah, I’m not going to struggle to disguise my weakness— I’m just gonna give over the keys to my main man Jesus and let him bless me through this ride. Isaiah 54:10”
Honestly, it’s a bit of a surprise to hear her tell it like this; we know Hannah’s been through it with the whole Tyler Cameron–Gigi Hadid situation, not to mention her own pitfalls in love with disgraced show winner Jed Wyatt. And while we can only imagine what life is like after a high-profile run on a popular reality TV show, it sure sounds like things aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.
Bottom line: huge props to the sexy southerner for being so real, and so open. It can’t be easy to cut through the bull s**t like this, but she’s doing it — and hopefully serving as a good role model along the way!
