Hannah Brown’s season of “The Bachelorette” has been a rollercoaster of emotions, especially those last two parts of the season finale.
Over the course of the season, we saw Hannah refuse to hand out “pity roses,” call out men for focusing on drama and not her, eat pickled herring in one bite, send Luke home with an empowering speech, and, ultimately, get her heart broken.
However, Hannah showed us that she’s not allowing a big bump in the road to deflate her. Rather, Hannah will keep on growing and thriving.
On Wednesday night, Hannah penned a long Instagram post about how these past few months have been “the hardest yet most fulfilling on my life.” The 24-year-old embarked on a long day of press tours on Wednesday, and she thanked all the outlets for giving her “a platform to tell my story.”
Hannah wrote, “The past few months have definitely been the hardest yet most fulfilling of my life. I opened my heart to love, and shared that experience with millions. I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs and as painful as it has been at times, I wouldn’t change it one bit.”
She continued, “Did I make choices that hurt my heart? Absolutely. Have I become stronger through that hurt? You bet. I realized how strong of a woman I am, and how resilient I can be. My love story might not have been the one I would have initially written for myself; however, falling more in love with the woman I am at the end of this journey is something I’ll always look back on fondly.”
Hannah also assured her fans and followers that her time on “The Bachelorette” did not at all close the book on looking for love. “It’s just my beginning,” she wrote.
The Alabama native confirmed that she’ll be getting drinks with Tyler Cameron in the future. Unfortunately, we’re all “not invited” to the gathering.
She said of Tyler, “He’s a really good man, and I’m going to be his biggest fan in whatever makes him the happiest.”
Cheers to you, Hannah Beast.
