When another follower asked how she stays in "good spirits," the reality star replied, "I don't stay in good spirits. I drown in tears sometimes. And that's okay. I don't stay in dark places long and that's the goal for me."
"Feel your feelings, find the root issue, and push forward," she added.

"I forgot how mean people are when you go on TV," Bristowe wrote. "Just so many 'She looks so old and plastic comments' everywhere. You win today trolls. It got to me."
The "Off the Vine" podcast host opened up more about the criticism in a vulnerable video.
"I had a good cry, didn’t somehow ruin my eyeliner," she said in the clip, which she also posted on her Instagram Story. "I honestly am so tired that anything will set me off right now, plus I am PMSing so great combo."
"But I felt my feelings. I got it out, sometimes I like to be honest on here but not always be 'woo, happy,'" she added. "I had a weak moment, cried it out, felt it all, now poured myself a glass of wine, and remember what's important in life."
