Hannah Brown Pens Emotionally Raw Message to Fans About Life After ‘The Bachelorette’

It’s been two weeks since Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette came to a shocking end. And now, the 24-year-old beauty queen is reflecting on her journey in a raw Instagram post.

Yesterday, Brown posted a message on social media and addressed how she’s been feeling since she called off her engagement to Jed Wyatt.

She wrote, “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.”

Brown went on to apologize for closing herself off, adding, “I miss my friends and family who 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 who matter most, because I can barely keep up with my own life right now.”

The former Bachelorette also clarified that she doesn’t have any regrets about her time on the show. “I am not complaining about this past year of adventures,” she continued. “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 the post with a little self-reflection: “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.”

Welp, we love this so much.
