Since the pandemic started, the world has become familiar with the concept of lockdowns.

But whether you’ve gone through it once, twice or multiple times, it’s never easy

Not being able to see friends and family can prove to be difficult, and The Bachelor’s Bella Varelis has recently opened up about how she’s feeling as Sydneysiders are forced to stay at home.

The 26-year-old, who was the runner up last year on The Bachelor, shared a revealing post on her Instagram, saying she feels “lost emotionally”.

“One thing that’s keeping me going, looking forward to travelling the world again and still having all of you beautiful humans in my life,” she admitted to her 100,000 followers.

“It’s SO hard to be positive in the present moment but I’m trying immensely hard to remember that focusing on feeling good, means the good will come to fruition.”

Bella has recently been quiet on social media, and she confessed it was due to the backlash she would receive every time she posted a photo.

“But, my life coach made me realise that the people that have been criticising me aren’t the ones I do this for, you, the sweet, beautifully hearted, strong humans that love fashion, beauty, travel (albeit what’s allowed) and lifestyle are the ones I do this for,” she wrote.

“PSA I’ve put on 6kgs and haven’t been able to fit in any of my jeans so really haven’t felt confident in my skin lately but you know what, s**t happens and I can’t help that I’m an emotional eater.”
