Not only did Hannah B. admit she was falling in love with Colton only days earlier, but she also got to meet his parents in Denver prior to being eliminated -- a gathering she assumed meant Colton was really invested in her and their relationship.
"Watching back last nights episode like... wow that one was a whammy," Hannah captioned a photo of herself from the date.
"But heartbreak is a part of life -- while every single hurt feels like it exposes weakness, it actually brings strength (powerful words of comfort the Lord placed over me)."
Hannah admitted the breakup was "hard," but at the same time, she's "so grateful for it."
"I came back home a little broken for a bit, but a more whole woman for good. I finally allowed myself to be so transparent in a relationship, regardless of the risk. The breaking of me will be the making of me -- and that's truth!" Hannah gushed in her Instagram post.
Hannah was apparently proud to be herself on The Bachelor, "the good, the bad, and the hot mess."
"ALL was shown and I wouldn't have it any other way (yes, infamous growls and all)!" Hannah wrote.
The 23-year-old beauty pageant queen from Alabama was eliminated before the women's round of hometown dates. Colton told Hannah he just wasn't falling in love with her back -- and he wasn't sure he ever could.
Hannah cried about being everything Colton said he wanted in a woman, but she recognized her worth and acknowledged in her final words she deserves better.

"I'm so immeasurable blessed for the growth this experience offered me, and I'm hopeful for whatever is to come!" she concluded in her post. "Thanks for the love and support -- my heart is full! #thebachelor #bebeast #choosejoy #seektruth."
