Meghan King Edmonds took to her Instagram account on Monday night, December 29, to reflect on her post-divorce experience over the holidays.
Before admitting that the holidays have been hard as she’s been forced to split time with her children, including four-year-old daughter Aspen and her two-year-old twin sons, Hayes and Hart, with her ex, Jim Edmonds, the former Real Housewives of Orange County cast member shared a message from a fan about her “sh*t divorce.”
“If your sh*t divorce has given you anything, it gave YOU back. Just keep being the most authentic, amazing mom and human you are each and every day,” the message read, in part.
In response, Meghan placed a circle around the “gave YOU back” quote and added a crying emoji and a red heart emoji to the screenshot.
Also on Instagram, Meghan shared a solemn photo of herself reading Untamed by Glennon Doyle, a favorite of RHOC‘s Braunwyn Windham-Burke, in the bathtub of her new home in St. Louis.
“This is not a sexy post. I won’t bore you with my woe-is-me specifics but thank god for sisters and bubble bath and friends who send you meditations and this book I’m reading,” Meghan began in the caption.
“Despite me putting on makeup and looking cute I lost my brain today. Holidays are hard… so are kids and divorce and Covid times,” she continued.
Meghan went on to say that when it comes to Instagram, not everything is as it seems.
“Instagram is smoke and mirrors. If looking at it makes you feel inadequate stop following that person, me included,” she wrote. “Love you all. Now back to my unfiltered tub.”
Meghan began dating businessman and podcaster Christian Schauf earlier this year after her October 2019 split from Jim but confirmed their split weeks ago.
