Hannah Brown is opening up about how much her life has changed since becoming "The Bachelorette."
24-year-old Brown penned a lengthy Instagram post late Monday night where she admitted that she has been “struggling” following the end of the ABC series.
“Life is so different,” she said. “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.”
In her season, the former Miss Alabama went through a lot. She broke up with her fiancé, Jed Wyatt, and was later spotted with runner-up Tyler Cameron, who has since been linked to Gigi Hadid.
Hannah addressed some of the drama that surrounded her during this hit TV show including her heated argument about sex and religion with controversial contestant, Luke Parker.
“My faith has been questioned by thousands who don’t know my heart, and my transparency with my decisions has labeled me promiscuous,” she continued. “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.”
The reality star then explained how hectic her life has become and how she is even too busy to visit with family and friends.
“I miss my friends and family that have watched my life explode,” she wrote. “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.”
She went on to say, “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.”
Brown concluded her post with a message to her followers, reminding them that “it’s okay to be overwhelmed.”
“Life is beautiful, but wild,” she wrote. “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.”
