1021. Kaitlyn Bristowe On How To Handle Comparison

Reality TV star and entrepreneur Kaitlyn Bristowe and I go deep on topics like healing your inner child, navigating female friendships, and embracing getting older in a world that’s obsessed with youth.

In our conversation, Kaitlyn opens up about her journey leading up to her time on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, including the devastating heartbreak that changed her life. We talk about the power of forgiveness and how to develop a more resilient mindset. Plus, Kaitlyn shares how she cultivates self-love and continues to prioritize her relationship with herself.
