Two days after announcing her split from husband Chris Randone, Bachelor in Paradise’s Krystal Nielson has more to say about the split.

Chris and Krystal met while filming the reality series Bachelor in Paradise and married less than a year ago with their wedding being televised on the latest season of the reality show. But alas, it was not meant to be.

“It hurts to announce that at this moment, we have mutually decided to separate,” they couple said in a joint statement to BachelorNation.com,  “Never did we imagine this scenario, but we’ve come to a point where we both need to work on ourselves.”

Now, Krystal is making a statement of her own on her Instagram account, by explaining the decision of their “conscious separation.”

“Thank you to everyone for your support as Chris and I navigate this new chapter. We FaceTimed last night and were talking about how surreal the past couple years have been. And how LUCKY we are to have found one another. We knew that taking a “conscious separation” would be difficult to explain to all of our supporters, friends and fans.. and we knew of the potential tabloid frenzy that would incur… but we care so deeply about one another that we were willing to take the risk, as WE feel that this is the right move for US.

“We weren’t planning on saying anything until we had actually processed what this new “chapter” actually IS… but media outlets started reaching out to friends, family, and other cast members with crazy rumors so we felt that we needed to make a statement from US. Were we ready? No. Did we feel pressure? Absolutely. Does it hurt to hear and read comments and judgments? Deeply. But we are choosing love and compassion over anger and fear.”

She continued, “We know that this isn’t conventional and people are absolutely entitled to their opinions- but we’ve realized how much we have stunted our growth bc of the fear of disappointing and “failing” others- and therefore neglecting what WE need to thrive. For me, this stems all the way back to my childhood and the need to please others in order to feel worthy of their love and acceptance. But living a life to please others will only leave you empty and full of regrets.

“Chris left Saturday morning to begin an exciting adventure in Florida and I am so proud of him for making big moves. I am still here in San Diego with Wayne and Chucky and we are open to where our heart calls us to be next.”

Krystal concluded the post by saying, “In the past I’ve turned to bad habits to numb out the pain… but I now know, after extensive personal development this past year, that these pain bodies only harbor in us and continue to fester at a later time in life. And it’s not until we deal with it head-on that we can evolve, grow and become a better human being and soul.

“So we are both staying present, sitting in stillness and focusing on radical self care, as we come from a place of love and compassion on how we can BEST support each other. Thank you , we love you.”

We wish Chris and Krystal the best as them move forward in their separate journey’s.
