Abbie goes on to describe the insane bubble the girls on The Bachelor live in: "From Hometowns, I forgot the cameras were there. It didn’t feel like we were filming a show at all, it felt like we had this real relationship built in a little bubble of “The Bachelor” and we would be out soon and able to live a normal life."
It's about here that we just want to give Abbie a big ol' hug: "Hearing Matt say “my heart is with someone else” reminded me that we were filming and that Matt had to make a difficult decision, and he did not see in me what I saw in him.
"I felt silly for ever imagining Matt would love me. It was like emotional whiplash. I was so confused and it felt like I was in a dystopian reality. The second the cameras turned off, I sobbed. I screamed. I couldn’t breathe. I didn’t think this would be how we would end."
Abbie ends her Insta post by making it very clear that she has nothing but time and love for Chelsie and Matt, which is all we want to see at the end of the day.
"I spent weeks crying about this relationship that had almost no closure. I still haven’t fully healed from my relationship with Matt, but I know he and the gorgeous woman he is with are happy, and that’s all that matters."
