‘Exactly one year ago today I took the biggest leap of faith... I not only married a stranger but I also delved into the grandest experiment of self discovery that I never dreamed could be possible,’ Sarah wrote, alongside a photo of herself walking down the aisle on the show.
‘You see, when I look at the first photo it immediately brings back an array of emotions to me. It was seconds before I was to meet my new husband on MAFS. I was awash with fear, anxiety, hope & excitement but mostly I was absolutely petrified for my future...
‘I’m so proud though of my journey & where it’s led me,’ Sarah went on.
‘I’ve realised now exactly what I want for my life & what I don’t want & won’t accept. I love that I’ve finally realised that it’s ok to say ‘No’ to some people & environments, to utterly back yourself & your heart’s deepest desires & to always trust your instincts.
‘Self love & acceptance are paramount to me these days but compassion & kindness will always be my first motivation. I’ve learned that you should never break but you should always be willing to bend & try something new.
‘The opportunity of going on ‘Married At First Sight’ unexpectedly strengthened my resolve in who I am as a woman today.’
Sarah’s post came as her on-screen ‘husband’ Telv faced allegations of assault, with the Daily Mail reporting that he was arrested and escorted
out of The Albion pub in Melbourne in handcuffs, after a nightclub scuffle.
Friends of the victim have claimed that Telv left a man “bruised and battered” after punching him in the side of the face.
