Brittany Aldean shared with her Instagram followers a meme about constantly trying to lose a few pounds and missing out on all of the sweet things in life. "We are all hard on ourselves...I'm guilty of it too. Ohhh so guilty," Brittany admits in a caption that she wrote alongside the meme. She also admitted that after giving birth to her daughter earlier this year, she had the baby blues. She describes it as "an unexplainable sad feeling". "I was prescribed anti-depressants by my amazing doctor but decided to try a few alternative methods first by working out and eating better...thinking happy thoughts daily. It was a choice I made and ended up coming out of the slump I was in," she writes. "After all, god blessed me with two healthy, precious babies. What's there to not be happy about?! Life is just hard sometimes. Just want y'all to know we all struggle. There's things not seen on Instagram...things that go on in real life people don't see...so just know you aren't alone!!"
