Breaking up is hard to do, especially when you’re former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe and doing it with millions of fans watching!
Kaitlyn and her ex-fiancé Shawn Booth decided to end their relationship last month after three years together.
Though it has been quite the challenge for both of them, Kaitlyn recently used her Off the Vine podcast to open up about the heartbreak.
“People have been so kind through this because it sucks,” the 33-year-old told Olivia Caridi on the podcast.
While it has been heartbreaking for fans to hear about their split, Kait explained they had been having issues since the summer.
“This has obviously been a struggle since July. I did a podcast about it in September because people were like, ‘Why aren’t you posting with each other? Why aren’t you liking each other’s photos?’” she said.
“I was very open saying things aren’t easy right now. So, I feel like I’ve been grieving this relationship since the summer.”
Despite it taking her awhile to move forward, she is trying to just feel her feelings.
“So, I’m, like, healing and I’m moving forward now, but it took me a long time to get there. I was hurting for a really long time. Honestly, I’m a big fan of feeling your feelings.
“You know, I would just sit and cry. But, I would pick myself up and put a scrunchie in my hair and throw on some gangster music. I would be like, ‘OK you’re going to go for a run today because that’s going to make you feel better.’”
She continued, “It’s pushing yourself. It’s allowing yourself to crumble on the ground and be weak and just cry. [And,] picking yourself up and feeling empowered…and knowing you’re going to be OK.”
We are thinking of you during this tough time, Kaitlyn!
