Former reality star Audrey Roloff and her husband, Jeremy Roloff, may have written a book about their “Love Letter Life,” but she wants people to know her marriage isn’t always perfect.

On Instagram, Audrey posted a usual photo of her and Jeremy smiling together in a rustic-looking spot in their native Oregon. However, the message paired with the photo was much different than fans are used to hearing from Audrey.

She started off by saying, “Warning!!!! Vulnerable post.”

WARNING‼️vulnerable post: ⁣ ⁣ To be honest, the last few weeks have been hard on our marriage. We have been working through some things and let’s just say there has been a lot of “heated fellowship,” morning hugs missed, and date nights postponed. We are overworked and exhausted from the pace we’ve been running for too long. We know we need to slow down, but as Dallas Willard puts it, “we intend what is right, but we avoid the life that would make it a reality.” Instead, we keep running, keep pushing, keep producing and keep squeezing all the margin out of our lives. It’s robbing our joy, stealing our peace, and hindering our ability to love. ⁣ ⁣ If you’ve ever looked at or read a post from us and thought “They must just have it all together.” Volume up for this one….WE DON’T🙅🏼‍♀️ We fight, struggle, cry, and face challenges just like anyone. I’m saying this here because if you look at my Instagram feed from the past 3 weeks you don’t see the long tearful conversations, the hurtful remarks, the compiling complaints, the critical spirits, the prideful inner dialogue, or our unloving and disrespectful attitudes. You don’t see the full picture.⁣ ⁣ A few nights ago we went for an evening drive to talk through some struggles and we stumbled upon a trestle….😆 It was like God knew we needed something that would force us both to smile😅 Although you can’t tell by the photo, this wasn’t a happy night. I cried shortly after we snapped this photo. I’m saying this because I don’t want you to be deceived by the highlight reel that is “the gram.” We all have a messy behind the scenes reality. ALL OF US. Even the people you follow on social media who seem to be the most “real.” Even they have struggles they don’t share, and hurts the don’t publicize. We all do. And that’s ok! But that also means we need to remind ourselves when we’re scrolling this space that it’s not real life.⁣ ⁣ So friend, if you’re comparing your life, marriage, kids, house, job, body, etc. to what you see on Instagram, remember it’s NOT the full picture. And I just want to remind ya, you are enough. You are beautifully and wonderfully made. And you are loved.

The author and mom of one then made sure her fans know that she and Jeremy definitely do not “have it all together.”

She continued:

Audrey admitted that the above photo isn’t truly how the two of them were feeling.

That night wasn’t filled with smiles, but instead, it was filled with tears:

Audrey and Jeremy have been married since 2014. The couple shares a 1-year-old daughter, Ember.
