Amy Roloff: I Have So Many Regrets About My Divorce ...

by at .

Between being accused of holding Matt Roloff "hostage" and getting hate for "ruining" Little People, Big World, Amy Roloff just can't catch a break.

She has now written a book about her life.

Within those pages, she admits that she has some very real regrets about her divorce.

Amy Roloff Wrote a Book

Amy Roloff's book is titled A Little Me, and within these excerpts, she gets very frank about her life and what she would do differently.

"At first I felt like a complete failure at one of the most important relationships in my life," she says of her divorce from Matt Roloff.

"It saddens me that my relationship had to end," she admits. "It was a living death, and there are moments I feel like I’m still grieving a loss."

"I regret keeping a lot of my thoughts and feelings to myself instead of expressing them in a constructive way," she confesses.

Amy expresses: "I regret that I was on the defense a lot instead of being more proactive."

"Many have asked if I have any regrets," Amy writes, answering: "Absolutely."

"I could have done things differently," Amy notes. "But we both did what we thought was the right thing."

"However," she emphasizes. "I’m glad I don’t have the kind of regrets that would have kept me stuck in the mind-set of if only . . ."

Amy continues: "or should of, could of, would of kind of thoughts."

"I did at first," she acknowledges. "But thankfully I got past that."

"I look with anticipation, as well as a little fear and uncertainty, to the days ahead," Amy reveals.

"But," she notes. "I’m also hopeful."

"My second act is like a blank white canvas," Amy characterizes. "And I get to choose how it will look."

"I’m planning to paint it with bright, joyful colors," she expresses.

"I don’t want to feel sorry for myself for what I lost," Amy explains. "Because that kind of thinking isn’t going to help me move on in life."

Instead, she would prefer to focus on "experiencing and embracing new things."

"I’ve taken time to reflect on some of the things I’ve learned," Amy shares.

"And," she writes, she's reflected upon "how I’ve grown from my relationship with Matt."

This is when she confides that she felt like a complete "failure" at this vital relationship.

"However, with failure, we need to allow ourselves to learn and grow from the experience," she reminds her readers.

"And hopefully," Amy adds. "Be a better person from it."

"Out of the sadness of divorce," she continues. "I’ve found the Amy I kind of lost."

"Even facing the uncertainty ahead," Amy states. "I feel I have a new confidence."

"And," she adds. "A stronger trust in who I am, what I think, how I make decisions, and how I look at myself and others."

That's great!

"I’m learning to communicate better and not shy away from having different ideas and thoughts from someone else," Amy reveals.

"Boy," she admits. "Do I still have a lot to learn."

"Several years ago," Amy acknowledges. "I came very close to being stuck in the mud of my past with that kind of thinking."

"I didn’t know how to get out of it." she confesses. "Not only was it not fun, it wasn’t very productive or healthy either."

"The fear of being stuck was much scarier than facing an uncertain future moving forward," Amy observes.

"I realized I can’t keep falling into the trap of comparing myself to others, worrying about what I look like, about what others think or will say," she says.

Amy continues: "and somewhere deep in my thoughts still thinking I’m not good enough. Enough was enough"

"I regret that I felt alone when there were people around me who wanted to help and be there for me," she writes. "But I closed them out."

"Cracks were showing," Amy expresses. "And I wanted to put myself together all by myself."

"It’s okay to ask for help," she emphasizes.

"Just by being there for me, nothing more, my close friends were a big part of helping me get through some tough personal challenges," Amy affirms.
