The “Bachelor in Paradise” alum posted a photo of himself working out at the gym and staring off into the distance. Chris hadn’t posted on the social media platform in over three weeks — his last post was September 3.
He explained why he returned to Instagram and the important lesson he learned, and what he’s hoping his followers will do. “I’ve been gone for a minute but I’ve been working on myself, putting in overtime. Instagram can be a very toxic environment that disconnects you from your true self,” he wrote. “Just be aware that there’s more to life than Instagram and happiness doesn’t come from social media.”

Unlike Instagram, Chris is very active on Twitter. (His feed can help guide any and all of your fantasy sports questions!)
Chris’ Instagram post resembles a candid video Kaitlyn Bristowe shared not long ago. She explained in a series of uploads that her flawless-looking photos are mostly thanks to filters, and what we see isn’t necessarily what real life looks like.
She said in her post, “I’ve got lines under my eyes, I’ve got brown spots, I’ve got zits, I’ve got it all. We’re all human and we can all have the perfect airbrush filter if we want to. I just don’t want you to think that’s achievable because, I mean, it’s not.”
She said at another point in the podcast, “Chris and I have spent a lot of time working on ourselves. It’s important that we work on ourselves before we have kids. We are working as a team and the rest of the year before we have kids.”
