It’s been two days of announcing her split from Blake Moynes. Katie Thurston posted an inspirational message about moving forward on Social Media. Katie Thurston is picking up the pieces after her breakup from fiance Blake Moynes. The two announced their split on October 25, and two days later, Katie took to Instagram to briefly update fans on how she’s doing.
First, she revealed that her dog “forced” her to finally get out of the house. Then, she thanked her followers for showing her support during this difficult time.
“Thank you to everyone who has shown their love and support,” she wrote. “You can either spend every day convincing yourself things are fine. Or you can accept what is and learn and grow from it. And remember — you don’t [owe] anyone anything. Life is too short. Surround your personal universe with joy”.
Although she didn’t reference the split directly, Katie’s message seems to hint that she was unhappy in her relationship and came to accept the fact that she wanted to move on from it. The former Bachelorette star and Blake, who got engaged on the show, have only been together since the spring, so their relationship was quite short-lived.
Katie and Blake had some relationship struggles due to their living situations. Blake is from Canada, while Katie lives in Washington, so seeing each other was not easy — especially with the regulations currently in place amidst the coronavirus. Plus, Blake’s job requires him to spend a lot of time in Africa, and the breakup happened after he and Katie spent several weeks away from each other while he was at work.
