Trista Sutter Safe After Concerns

Former Bachelorette Trista Sutter is doing well, but she’s not ready to share the full story behind her recent mysterious absence.

On Saturday, 51-year-old Trista addressed her husband Ryan Sutter’s unusual social media posts from earlier this month. Ryan had shared that Trista was away from her family and seemingly out of contact, causing concern among their followers.

“Geez people. Can’t a girl have a nervous breakdown/trial separation/midlife crisis/death/divorce in peace around here?!” Trista wrote on Instagram.

Trista made her statement alongside a photo of herself, Ryan, 49, and their two children, Maxwell, 16, and Blakesley, 14.

“In all seriousness, for those concerned, I’m safe and sound, happy and healthy, in love and grateful,” Trista said. “For those who’d rather focus on being critical and searching way too hard for darkness, good luck with that.”

Without disclosing where she’s been or why Ryan mentioned she was out of communication, Trista explained that an “opportunity for perspective and personal growth presented itself” to her.

“With the unconditional support of my family and friends, I chose myself and betterment, knowing that my stay-at-home-mom job and my kids’ end-of-the-school-year needs were in the best, most capable hands,” she said.

Trista noted that her “stoic husband” Ryan made his cryptic posts out of love for her, hoping they would reach her during her “travels.”

She informed her followers that she and Ryan often use social media “like a digital diary.”

“Most of the time, the world doesn’t pay too much attention,” she said. “This time, he couldn’t say anything right and just about every news outlet picked up his ‘cryptic/confusing/attention-seeking/dramatic’ pictures and captions.”

However, Trista said Ryan’s posts reached her and gave her the emotional strength to combat “some serious self-doubt and fear.”

“He doesn’t owe anyone any explanation or require permission to post what he wants to post and share what he wants to share,” Trista said.

She assured her followers she would share the rest of the story “in due time.”

“After all, nervous breakdowns and separations require much-needed rest and relaxation!” she concluded.

Trista also shared several Instagram stories of Ryan and their kids lounging on the beach and enjoying a vacation in Mexico.

Trista and Ryan married in 2003 after becoming a couple in the inaugural season of The Bachelorette.

Ryan’s social media posts, beginning earlier this month, triggered worry and fascination over the behind-the-scenes lives of the reality stars. In his first of many posts to Instagram, Ryan said his wife’s “absence” has made his heart grow fonder. “I can think of only a handful of days I have not, at minimum, spoken to this incredible woman,” he wrote. “She is the love of my life and my best friend. I cannot imagine loving her any more or any more fondly. But I guess we’re gonna find out…. I miss her already.”
