"One of the biggest takeaways I took was we have zero percent control of the past but 100 percent control of the future," Peter reportedly wrote in reply. "And that's a beautiful thing."
On The Bachelor's 2020 season, Peter proposed marriage to Hannah Ann at the Final Rose Ceremony in Australia but only after the seemingly real winner of his heart, Madison, decided to quit the show because she and Peter didn't seem compatible in significant ways.
Viewers witnessed Peter dumping Hannah Ann less than two months after getting engaged because he said he couldn't give his fiancee his whole heart. Not only was Peter struggling with lingering feelings for Madison, but he also apparently still wasn't over his The Bachelorette ex Hannah Brown either.
And Madison wasn't over Peter. She toldThe Bachelor host Chris Harrison she regretted breaking up with Peter and continued to love and miss him once she returned to Alabama. She claimed she could barely eat or sleep after their split.
As a result, Madison went after the pilot once she learned he had called off his engagement to Hannah Ann and was single again. The pair had both hurt each other badly, but a mutual love and respect still existed.
On The Bachelor's live Season 24 finale on March 10, Peter and Madison therefore decided to give their relationship another chance, much to the dismay of Peter's disapproving family.
Not only did Peter's mother Barbara Weber gush about her love for Hannah Ann, but she also insisted during the live finale her son's relationship with Madison would never work out.

And Barbara was right! Just two short days after The Bachelor finale aired on ABC, Peter and Madison released separate statements via Instagram on March 12 announcing they had called it quits on their revived romance.
"Madi and I have mutually decided to not pursue our relationship any further," Peter wrote as part of a lengthy post, which served as the caption of a photo of himself.
"Believe me this was not easy for either of us to be ok with, but after a lot of honest conversations, we have agreed that this is what makes most sense for the two of us. The love and respect I have for Madi will continue to endure."
Peter went on to thank Madi by writing, "Madi, thank you for your patience and unconditional love. You're the epitome of a woman who carries herself with grace, stands by what she believes in, and loves whole heartedly. That love is something I feel so grateful to have felt and will take a piece of that with me always going forward."
And Madison made her announcement by posting a photo of Peter and herself from The Bachelor finale in which they were both beaming with happiness.
"As Peter and I have decided to go our separate ways, I am confident that we will both move in the direction of our purpose and never forget that God has a plan in all things. I will always love and respect him," Madison shared.
"I am convinced our paths were meant to cross and we are both better because they did. [Peter] you are an amazing guy and I'm thankful for you. I will always be your biggest fan."
According to a source, Peter has recently been spending time with his family in their California home as they self-quarantine amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Us reported.
"This time of quarantine is bringing the Weber family closer than ever before," the source said.
"They are using this time together to bond. During isolation, Peter and his family have been watching movies, playing board games and cooking together."
