Christina Anstead is getting personal. Just a week after she announced that she is splitting up from her husband Ant Anstead, the reality television star got very personal in a lengthy post about her post-separation anxiety. Here’s what you need to know.
Without even giving the slightest hint of what went wrong, Christina shared her announcement on Instagram that she and Ant have made the difficult decision to separate. The couple share a one-year-old son, Hudson London together. Christina has two older children, Taylor and Brayden, from her marriage to Tarek El Moussa.
Christina Anstead Admits She Suffers From Anxiety
Sharing a selfie of herself on her Instagram account, the reality television star wrote, “For those of you who don’t know me (or think you know me) let me reintroduce myself. I hate crowds, I love traveling, all things spiritual, the ocean and deep one on one conversations.
I never thought about being on tv. I wanted to be a sports agent like Jerry Maguire. But I always loved looking at houses with my parents especially model homes and I always wanted to be my own boss… So in college when I was called (intuitively) to get my real estate license at a local community college I followed my intuition.
I got started in real estate at 21 which led to selling houses which led to flipping houses which led to Tv. Now while I never wanted to be on tv, stepping out of my comfort zone and into the unknown has always been my thing.
Christina continued, “I live in a state of anxiousness and I’m so used to it that when it’s not there I tend to feel a void and hop into something that causes the feeling I’m used to. This can be good and bad. And it’s one of the things I’m working on breaking the pattern of. Sometimes anxiety and pursuit of new dreams leads me down amazing paths, other times it leaves me feeling lost and in a state of fight or flight / or crying in my closet. Tv changed my life and I am grateful for the life it’s provided, the experiences, the friends I’ve made along the way. Sometimes our calling is bigger than our plans. I never thought I would have one divorce let alone two. I never thought I would have 2 baby daddies – but sometimes life throws us curve balls. Instead of getting stuck in these “setbacks” I choose to look at these challenges as opportunities to grow. So while some may judge me and throw around rumors about me, most of you support me. And that says a lot about this world and where we are headed. I’m messy, I’m real and I’m working on healing. I’m surrounded by extremely powerful women who help me cope, build me up and push me to be better. If you’ve DM me or text me – I haven’t written back because I’m taking time to clear the “noise” and focus on myself and the kids. I appreciate the support and I hope my story inspires you to not be so hard on yourself for the decisions / choices you’ve made. We are all a work in progress.”
Of course, it didn’t take very long for her fans to respond to her post. Quite a few of them said, “Let’s get it straight – if you were a man, no one would have judged you. F everyone and keep pushing forward Live life, continue your family and career focused and do what you love to do. No one can please everyone.”
Another fan said, “You don’t have two baby daddies, you have two men who you loved in different seasons of your life, and three beautiful kids as a result. We grow, and learn, and change, and evolve. And what was right for us at one time may not be right for us at another. These are not setbacks. They are simply you entering your next season of life. The beautiful thing about it is that there is no limit to how many different seasons you can have. Don’t let this bring you down.”
