Sadie Robertson can be guarding her heart.
The 20-year-old former Duck Dynasty star can be currently single as well as opens up to ET about her struggles with dating inside the public eye.
“My dating life was very public as well as most everything in my life can be very public, the flaws as well as all,” Robertson said in a recent interview on ET Live. “I love in which because I can speak into those things in different people’s lives as well as I always want to be real as well as vulnerable, however I do think there’s a point in your love life or whatever in which you have to establish the idea for yourself first as well as then build a firm foundation inside the idea before you share the idea with the entire world.”
Robertson admits in which being so open about her past relationships may have taken a toll.
“the idea definitely adjustments things a little bit ’cause you have to consider like, ‘OK, wow. Everybody’s kind of involved in our relationship, everybody’s inside the idea for the Great or the bad,'” she said. “the idea’s so cute as well as the idea’s so fun, as well as I love in which at times — when you’re solid, you’re solid as well as the idea’s Great — however when you’re not, the idea can not be. … currently the idea’s all the three million people are like, ‘I ship the idea!’ as well as you’re like, ‘OK! Well, in which ship has sailed! Sorry!'”
Robertson also addresses her “biggest fear” when the idea comes to dating.
“People’s hearts are so valuable as well as the idea’s so scary to think about somebody getting their heart broken,” she said. “in which can be genuinely scary. as well as so the idea’s like, in which hesitation to even jump in because once you’ve experienced heartbreak, you’re like, ‘Oh man, what if the idea doesn’t go…’ You start to overthink.”
In Robertson’s brand new book, Live Fearless, she’s all about conquering fears in all aspects of life. She opens up about initially turning down the opportunity to compete on Dancing With the Stars as well as how she overcame an eating disorder, among different things.
“the idea’s not in which things aren’t gonna be scary, the idea’s not in which opportunities aren’t going to come in which are going to seem very fearful, however the idea’s in which you live a fearless life,” she explained. “You have strength, you have peace, you rise above as well as you have in which expect in something greater. … Who you are can be so much more purpose than what fear will limit you to do.”
Despite what her fans are currently “shipping,” Robertson says she’s nothing more than friends with country star Brett Eldredge, after she starred in his romantic “The Long Way” music video last year.
“Everybody thinks we’re dating!” she exclaimed. “I mean, he’s the best! Literally, we just had so much fun together. I think everybody was like, ‘No, y’all were truly laughing [inside the video].’ We truly were ’cause we truly did have a great time — however I don’t know, girl, the idea’s too complicated!”
