Jordyn Woods, 23, is looking back on the headline-making night she kissed Tristan Thompson, 29, who was dating Khloe Kardashian, 36, at the time, nearly two years ago and revealed the criticism she faced from the incident led her to push many people away. "It was God sitting me down like, 'Pay attention, your objective is much bigger than you, allow me to use you as a vessel'".

Recalling her emotional state at that time, Woods said, "I felt like I had no one". It also ended Woods' longtime friendship with makeup entrepreneur Jenner, 22, Khloe Kardashian's half sister.

In an interview with Natalie Manuel Lee's "NOW with Natalie", on YouTube's Hillsong channel, Jordyn walks through her journey, explaining how she's been the subject of online bullying since she was 13, thanks to her proximity to fame and privilege.

"I deleted everything off of my phone". I wouldn't respond to anyone. I responded to about two people. "I pushed people away that probably shouldn't have been pushed away but I just couldn't trust anyone". She lost her father to cancer three years ago and threw herself into keeping busy, but she was forced to change nearly everything in her life after one fateful night when she became the subject of public shaming. he talks about how she learned to lean on her faith to transform her experience into a more positive one. "When your whole world feels like it's crumbling down, everything you thought you knew, it's really to be rebuilt again but much stronger", she added.

Much like Woods said when she spoke to Jada Pinkett Smith past year on "Red Table Talk", she acknowledged her role in what went down and accepted the subsequent vilification from Kardashian fans.

"It's easy to beat yourself up over things you could have done differently, but you can't hold on to what you could have or should have done", Woods explained. While they've each made appearances on the other's story, it's not official-official until you show up on the regular feed, which has just happened. "It might take you a month to let it go, it might take you a year to let it go but you have to start praying to be able to let it go". She had to move out of Jenner's home and was ex-communicated from the family.

"Jordyn's position now is she's just going to let it be what it is", the friend told the news organization.

She said she embraced being a "tomboy" because she was unable to comfortably fit popular teen clothing brands such as Abercrombie.
