Former Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe is never afraid to show her real feelings on social media… and we love her for it.
Last week the reality star cried on Instagram and opened up with fans about her ongoing struggles with anxiety and self esteem.
“So I deleted my post earlier about — it was an Instagram Story — just about that I had a hard day, but I don’t think I should’ve. And I just didn’t want people to jump to conclusions,” the 33-year-old shared on Thursday, October 18.
“But again, for anyone going through a bit of a challenge right now, just know that it’s temporary and that this too shall pass and that we’re all gonna be OK.”
She continued, “And social media is clearly, as I always say, a highlight reel.”
Though she wants to be open and honest with her fans on social media, she also has to be careful not to overshare.
“It’s always such a tricky thing to navigate for me because I wanna be real and I wanna be raw with everybody, but I also don’t wanna overshare,” she said.
“It’s weird when you’re on social media and you have a platform and you really let people in.”
Kaitlyn, who has been engaged to fiancé Shawn Booth since 2015, also recently shut down split rumors back in August.
“If you’ve ever been a person who is running a successful brand or business and a person who is doing the same but in a different career path you know times can be tough,” she shared on her podcast called Off the Vine.
“You are both always away, you’re exhausted at the end of the day, sometimes the relationship isn’t being put first, but does that mean you call it quits? No. You love the s—t out of each other and you work through it — and yourselves to be better.”
She continued, “And you know that times aren’t always going to be smooth sailing. … You just have to get through those hurdles and enjoy the good times. Shawn and I are 110 percent committed to each other and, yes, we are still together.”
We love Kaitlyn for being honest with her feelings, we know it’s going to help a lot of people!
