Faye said in her honest answer: “Overall it’s been amazing! And I’m so lucky that I have the most incredible man in the whole world to enjoy this new world!
“But don’t let anyone fool you that it’s easy. Marry me, I’ve lived the life I love, in the place I love, surrounded by the people I love, a career I’ve strived for to have been, in a man dominating .industry and i love it with its incredible co-workers and routine, volunteering and enjoying life.
“No, we’re not in the habit of being in a completely different field trying to capture everything, trying to make sure we don’t do anything wrong or upset anyone while being judged on everything, no have friends or family around.
“I don’t want to complain because opportunity is a dream and my life is beautiful right now but again I just want people to know instagram is not reality and perfection is a myth.”
Another fan complimented her, saying: “Like it because you’re showing reality. It’s hard to be a woman in today’s society.” [sic]
Faye replied: “Is it difficult to be a woman in today’s society? Is it difficult to be a woman in society?” [sic]
“Strong women are all around us in different forms
“I’m only strong because society will never make me believe that I’m bad or that perfection exists.”
While a curious fan asked Faye to share her 5-year plan.
The reality star wrote: “My 5-year plan is to make sure I never have a 5-year plan. Have fun, live your life and enjoy it.
“Speaking of which, in the best 5 years I should still be around to annoy her a lot.”
Receiving other questions from fans, Faye was asked what her first job was.
She revealed: “My first full-time job was with @vol Volkswagen. I’m a bit of a car geek. 5-year-old Faye used to play car guessing with Daddy Winter.”
And when asked for advice on confidence and self-love, Faye countered: “My confidence comes from learning to love all my insecurities and as long as I’m happy and don’t get hurt. Who will judge me.
“I’ve learned to love my freckled skin, acne spots and wrinkled toes by laughing at them, but still love them nonetheless. They make me laugh and also make me realize I’m a baby. people, not sick people, and sure. imperfect, perfect in a person or in real situations is not possible and we should always keep that in mind!”
