Exclusive! Teen Mom's Farrah Abraham Recaps Her Ups & Downs of the Season
September 30, 2011
Wow, what a season it’s been. We’ve been following Farrah Abraham’s journey on Teen Mom for the last few weeks and it’s been quite the rollercoaster. Before we bid Farrah adieu until next season, find out her final thoughts on everything that’s happened this season.
What was the experience like reliving the season all over again for the Teen Mom reunion show?
At the time it was very hard. As you saw I was crying a lot. Sometimes it’s hard to put my feelings into wards on the spot , but I truly was at a very low time in my life there, emotionally.
During the reunion, you said Sophia would only be staying with your mom for a few weeks. Did you stick with that plan or did you decide to leave Sophia with your parents for longer?
You will have to watch the next season of Teen Mom starting in December for this answer. It’s very complicated.
What made you go back and forth about how long you would leave Sophia with your parents?
To me it was a very hard choice. Sometimes I see my parents being great grandparents and sometimes I see them falling short of my expectations and what I want for Sophia. So knowing my parents were splitting up was a big factor in making sure there was enough stability and support for Sophia.
Was it hard for you to think about living without her?
It was extremely hard to think of even leaving Sophia for a day, let alone longer. I had major anxiety about leaving Sophia. With going to counseling it only got better and that helped me be a stronger mom.
In the reunion, Dr. Drew said you should try to move from a place of depression to just sadness–have you gotten past the depression?
I have finally gotten passed the part of depression and I am very happy about it. It was very hard.
Now that you’re in Florida, do you feel like you’re moving on? Are you happier?
I see myself being a lot happier in Florida, as well as Sophia.
You also mentioned not having many friends during the reunion–are you actively trying to meet new people and make close friends?
I am. I am meeting new people who I want to be in my life and in Sophia’s life, as well. It’s great to enjoy other people’s company now. I also am dating and truly finding myself again.
Do you feel like having to grow up so fast has been the hardest part of being a teen mom?
I feel being a teen mom and maturing fast has been very hard. It’s hard to live up to some responsibilities right away as well as not finding people you want in your new life with your child. It’s hard but I don’t want to make the wrong choices again.
