The Little People, Big World reality star Audrey had to endure a lot as a mother and spouse. She is the wife of Amy and Mathew Roloff's son, Jeremy. Now, she is narrating her back story and what challenges she deals with on a daily basis. Fortunately, she has inside support.

She and her husband, Jeremy were brutally slammed after they left the show in 2017. The critics didn't leave them alone way later than that, too. Audrey's developing mastitis had restricted her to feed their daughter, Ember.

Being ultra-religious, she didn't nourish her child with formula milk, thinking it to be a "sin." Instead, she dwelled on medication for herself and continued. People contradicted her views.

Her marriage suffers

Recently, Audrey shared a fairly "vulnerable" post on her Instagram. She meant us to see the whole picture. We only watch her smile, cheer and be in love with her life and Jeremy, but there is more.

Audrey opened up about her strained relationship with hubby due to an overload of work. They started to ignore morning kisses and their planned dates are just postponed. They fight, cry and even throw tantrums at each other.

She also accepts it to be a reality that everyone has to accept. It's not all a bed of roses even though you pose to be happy on social media. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

WARNING‼️vulnerable post: ⁣ ⁣ To be honest, the last few weeks have been hard on our marriage. We have been working through some things and let’s just say there has been a lot of “heated fellowship,” morning hugs missed, and date nights postponed. We are overworked and exhausted from the pace we’ve been running for too long. We know we need to slow down, but as Dallas Willard puts it, “we intend what is right, but we avoid the life that would make it a reality.” Instead, we keep running, keep pushing, keep producing and keep squeezing all the margin out of our lives. It’s robbing our joy, stealing our peace, and hindering our ability to love. ⁣ ⁣ If you’ve ever looked at or read a post from us and thought “They must just have it all together.” Volume up for this one....WE DON’T🙅🏼‍♀️ We fight, struggle, cry, and face challenges just like anyone. I’m saying this here because if you look at my Instagram feed from the past 3 weeks you don’t see the long tearful conversations, the hurtful remarks, the compiling complaints, the critical spirits, the prideful inner dialogue, or our unloving and disrespectful attitudes. You don’t see the full picture.⁣ ⁣ A few nights ago we went for an evening drive to talk through some struggles and we stumbled upon a trestle....😆 It was like God knew we needed something that would force us both to smile😅 Although you can’t tell by the photo, this wasn’t a happy night. I cried shortly after we snapped this photo. I’m saying this because I don’t want you to be deceived by the highlight reel that is “the gram.” We all have a messy behind the scenes reality. ALL OF US. Even the people you follow on social media who seem to be the most “real.” Even they have struggles they don’t share, and hurts the don’t publicize. We all do. And that’s ok! But that also means we need to remind ourselves when we’re scrolling this space that it’s not real life.⁣ ⁣ So friend, if you’re comparing your life, marriage, kids, house, job, body, etc. to what you see on Instagram, remember it’s NOT the full picture. And I just want to remind ya, you are enough. You are beautifully and wonderfully made. And you are loved.

The most beautiful thing amid all this misery is her mother-in-law's support. Amy took time to attend and testify of Audrey plight. In a way, she offered her son's wife comfort. She commented:

Life is real. We usually show the best on IG and you’re right. There is a lot more that’s also real behind the scenes others forget about and don’t see.

People appreciated Audrey for being so honest 

@lorimaynard24:

You are in the middle of a marriage ministry that is teaching many people. By virtue of this, you will be under attack. Remember that and protect your marriage by keeping yourselves deep in the Word. I’ve been married almost 33 years so I know what I’m talking about here. Fall back a little and don’t let Satan get a foothold. ❤️

@mkrugmgreen:

I. Needed. This. 🙌🏼 While social media can be a great resource, it can really put me down a spiral of comparison. Thank you for being honest!

@candacefuller:

Marriage is hard work. It’s not always pretty, but it’s worth it. ❤️❤️

@3cheers45years:

Love this ❤️ thank you for being so real, and having the courage and strength to share this. Too many people think that what they see on social media is the whole story, and it’s not. Thank you, definitely needed this reminder.

She has given us a reminder that in real life there are ups and downs. The only thing that matters is how we cope and work it out with our loved ones. Share this if you think you can relate and understand Audrey's feelings.
