Shay said "We all have to deal with various struggles and challenges in life. And sometimes it's easier to only showcase the good times on social media, which is what leads many people to criticise it for its lack of authenticity".
She later thanks her fans and followers for supporting her, and for "lifting her up during even my darkest days".
"In the spirit of the new year, I think that we need to remember that we are all on this journey together--in good times and in bad--and to remind ourselves that we seldom really know or understand the struggles and hardships that other people are going through".

While Shay didn't mention the father, many have assumed it was Matte Babel, a TV host, who she has recently been linked to.
