Meri Brown Declares 'Suffering' Is Not An 'Option' After 'Sister Wives' Star Reveals She Doesn't Feel Part Of Her Own Family
Meri Brown has been rising above the seemingly never-ending obstacles in her life.
The Sister Wives star, 50, took to her Instagram Story on Thursday, January 14, to share inspirational messages about self love after she admitted she currently doesn't feel like she is part of the Brown family.
"Normalize LUXURY in your life. SUFFERING is not an achievement," Meri — whose marriage to Kody Brown has been on the rocks for years — reposted to her account.
"Do you know who will never leave your side? YOU," another post read. "Perhaps this is the relationship you need to nurture the most."
These motivating messages come as the Becoming Sister Wives: The Story of an Unconventional Marriage author recently revealed to her fellow sister wife Robyn Brown that she has been feeling distant from their family and Kody, 52.

"I am an outsider, Robyn," Merri expressed during a recent episode. “No I don’t feel like I am part of the Brown family. It’s this weird thing."
"Am I a sister-wife when I don't have a husband? I have a husband, technically, but do I? ... It's weird," she pointed out, as Kody has expressed multiple times on the show that he quit pursuing his first wife a long time ago.
This has not been the only heartache the TLC personality has had to face lately. As OK! previously reported, her husband of nearly 31-years made it clear the romantic love between them is no more. Rest assured, Kody told Meri they can still be in each other's lives — as friends.
“He told me that we can be friends, and that’s all," Meri — who shares 26-year-old daughter Mariah with Kody — stated.
"I always saw one of the main benefits about plural marriage is that anybody in the family would never actually suffer true loneliness," the father-of-18 explained. "The way things have played out for our family, that's not necessarily true. My relationship with Meri is not the type of relationship where I’m going to talk to her every day."
