‘LPBW’: Amy Roloff Told Her Instagram Followers It’s Hard Not to ‘Dwell on the Past’ and ‘Feel Regret’
We’ve been keeping up with the Roloff family for over a decade, and Little People, Big World viewers are excited to see what Amy and Matt Roloff will be getting into in 2020. So far, we know Matt and his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, spent New Year’s in Surprise, Arizona. And Amy’s been working hard with her big move off of Roloff Farms and into her new home in a neighborhood just 15 minutes away.
While Matt appears to be living it up, Amy’s been going through some serious highs and lows as of late. And she posted a passage to Instagram that’s all about how she’s working on not dwelling too hard on the past or having regrets about how things went down months prior. Here’s what she posted.
Amy Roloff is getting settled into her new home
Moving is never easy — and moving while in the public eye is even harder. Amy lived on Roloff Farms with Matt for decades, as they took care of the family business and raised their four children on the farm property. After their divorce, however, they knew something had to change. While Amy stayed in the big farmhouse and Matt lived in a separate home with his girlfriend on the property, Amy needed a more long-term solution.
This led her to house hunting toward the middle of 2019 and buying a home in September. And by the end of the year, she told her Instagram followers all about her move. Her new home is in Hillsboro, Oregon, and has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a total of 3,767 square feet. While her fiancé, Chris Marek, isn’t co-owning the home with Amy, he did help her find it, as he served as her realtor and has been there to support her through the entire process.
She’s noted some of the troubles she’s had while moving off of Roloff Farms
Amy took her time when deciding whether to move or stay on Roloff Farms post-divorce. And she’s shared all of her ups and downs with her social media followers through the entire process.
Back in November, Amy wrote on Instagram that the entire move was taking much longer than she thought. “It was a lot of stuff to handle for me and I’m realizing I really don’t handle stress as well as I had thought,” she added.
Once she finally moved, she added another Instagram post in December that explained how living in the new home is going to take a ton of getting used to. “Let’s face it, the farm will always be the farm, no comparison, but a new house in a new neighborhood will have its own adventure and it will take time to get use to it and 2020 will be another interesting year,” she wrote.
Then, at the end of 2019, Amy took to Facebook Live with her friend and discussed involving Marek in her new living situation. “I think the biggest thing for me working on it, and, you know, maybe for him too, is that, you know, he’s been single for quite some time, and I have too … but going to this new house, I have a tendency to say, ‘this is what I do’ or ‘I want to do this’ … I have to incorporate again the ‘we,'” Amy told Facebook on video.
Amy posted about not dwelling on the past on Instagram
While Amy gets candid with her followers regarding her true feelings, she always manages to find the good in every situation. And she shared some of her current emotions on an Instagram post added on Jan. 18.
The post started, “Allow yourself to reflect on the past. Whether it was good or not, we’ll always learn from our past so we can be better in the present. But don’t live there. ….”
“I truly believe this, and it’s something that’s so important to remember right now,” Amy captioned the post. “It can be very difficult not to dwell on the past and feel regret about things you wish had turned out differently. But the beginning of a new year is the perfect time to refocus on the here and now.”
When it comes to dwelling on “the past,” we’re assuming Amy might still be considering past regrets she may have with Matt or her move off Roloff Farms. But we’re happy to see that Amy appears to be moving forward and opening herself up to opportunities in her new home, no matter how difficult the transition appears to be!
