Mackenzie McKee took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a stunning selfie as the new season of Teen Mom OG premiered on MTV and to explain why she would not be watching the new season.

In the photo, Mackenzie is wearing her long blond hair down and curled. She smiles for the photo and her makeup looks flawless. Although she looks happy in the photo, her caption tells a different story.

“Last year was a year I never imagined would happen to me,” Mackenzie began before detailing that not only did she lose her mom after a battle with cancer, but her marriage endured some rough times.

She also wrote in the post how some days are very hard for her. She then announced she had deactivated one of her social media accounts and was choosing not to watch the new season of the show.

“I have deactivated my Twitter for mental health reasons and will not be watching this season. I am still trying to crawl out of last year and to have to relive it all over again is something I don’t think I can conquer.”

Mackenzie’s storyline will undoubtedly predominantly feature her mother as well as the struggles Mackenzie and Josh faced in their marriage last year. Mackenzie admitted that she hasn’t been a “perfect wife” and revealed she was taking this time to focus on the important things in her life, including her kids and God.

“I have let the public control how i think of Josh and the choices i make and for the sake of us, i choose to stay away from reading social media,” she wrote.

Mackenzie also shared it was worth filming some difficult scenes so that people can “learn” from her.

Within the first day of being posted, the photo had over 28,000 likes from Mackenzie’s more than 800,000 followers on Instagram. Along with the likes were over 700 comments from supportive fans.

While plenty of fans chimed in in the comments section of the post, the official Teen Mom OG Instagram account also left a comment thanking Mackenzie for sharing her story and letting her know they were sending their “love” and “support.”

The mom of three has been transparent with her fans after the rough year she endured. Following the passing of her mom last year, Mackenzie shared with her fans how she was holding up and admitted that she could use some prayers while sharing that she was trying to stay busy.
