Amber shares Leah with her ex Gary Shirley and son James with her ex Andrew Glennon, and both kids live with their fathers, who won custody over the Teen Mom OG star.

The Teen Mom posted an emotional plea to fans to stop with all of the judgment on her life and to tell others who receive the same sort of comments from people that they should remember “just listen” to themselves.

She captioned the video by saying it was her current “mood.”

In the clip, Amber told the “people just like” her, the ones who “have a really rough past and you’re at the point in your life where you’re trying to pick yourself back up and actually make something of yourself and do better in life,” to only focus on themselves.

The MTV star continued: “Opinions of people who are just negative and ignorant, it doesn’t matter because the only opinion that really matters is yours. 

“Knowing what you did wrong, picking yourself back up and then sitting there moving forward, that is something that’s the key to wisdom, honestly.” 

Amber announced her acceptance into Purdue University last month, as she gushed about the program she would be attending online.

Despite her positivity towards a brighter future, fans couldn't help but recently hop in the comments and make accusations about her broken relationship with her daughter Leah.

Teen Mom OG 's season nine aired on January 26th 2021 on MTV.

The situation between Amber, Leah, Gary, and Kristina recently erupted when the child mentioned not feeling a bond with her birth mother.

Despite all of the rude comments she’s been receiving, she shared in the video that she’s been working to move past those messages by trying “a lot of different things,” including using her platform to “help people out by just talking to them.”

Now, she’s focused on improving her life by going to college.

“I get to go to school and, yeah, it might take me eight years and that really scares the crap out of me, to really get where I wanna be, but it’s going to be for the better,” she said. 

“So, just listen to yourself and keep moving [forward].”

Aside from trolls commenting on her posts, her ex Gary and her former Teen Mom co-star David Eason both recently shaded the 30-year-old.

Gary praised his wife Kristina on Friday for being able to balance “kids and responsibilities," seemingly shading his ex, who was just slammed for not being able to do the same by fans.

Jenelle Evans' husband David mocked Amber's past by referencing her 2019 arrest in a new video.

That year, she was accused of trying to break down a locked door with a machete while her then-boyfriend Andrew and their son, James, hid in a room during a fight.

David, who makes knives for a living, held up a machete he’s been working on for followers to see and said it's "about as long as Amber’s machete when she went after her baby daddy.”
