Caitlyn Jenner shocked the world when she transformed herself from Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn, detailed in the famous VAnity Fair cover from 2015.

But things have not been easy for her since the transformation.

In her recent interview with Broadly, she opened up about how things have not been the same with her kids and her fallout with the LGBTQ community. 

Sixty eight-years-old Caitlyn, who is reportedly engaged to girlfriend Sophia Hutchins, 21, revealed that she spends most of her time alone, even though she is a parent to six biological kids and four step-children.

"I spend a lot of time by myself here in the house," she said. "I have a lot of children, but sometimes just because of circumstances, maintaining a close relationship with your kids is very tough. They all have lives. They've all moved on."

"We're just human beings; we're going to be here for a very short time," she continued. "We come and we go and at the end, when it's all said and done, hopefully, your family is going to be there."

While Caitlyn knows that life is uncertain, she does have plans for her funeral. The former athlete recalled how she always wanted to be buried in women clothes even when she hadn't had her transformation. 

"I thought about that a lot over the years,' she told Broadly, "And it would shock everybody. Screw 'em."

But now, the way she looks at things have changed.

"I hope when I get up there to the pearly gates, God looks down and says, 'You did a good damn job, you won the Games, raised wonderful children, and you know, you made a difference in the world. Yeah, come on in,'" she said. 'That's the way I want to go," she added. 

Caitlyn even mentioned about her lonesome times when she was still Bruce. And how she always had a set of wigs and women clothing when she was flying so that she had somewhere to go when she wanted to be herself, even if it wasn't on earth.

"I would be up there in my little lonesome, free as can be," she said. 

Last year Caitlyn was forced to turn down an honor from St. John’s Trans Health. More than 2,000 people signed a petition that demanded, “Stop Dishonoring the LGBTQ Community By Honoring Caitlyn Jenner!!!”. 

By the time Caitlyn's plane had landed in LAX she announced that would not accept that award after all. 

"It hurts," she admitted, "I'm a human, a person." She added, "I got the trans community out there bashing on me, I got the Kardashians out there bashing on me,' she said. 'All I do is sit here in the house and try to stay out of trouble." 

She opened up about people being harsh on her.

"I get the criticism that I don't get it," she continued. "You know why? Because I'm not around it. I understand that. But I'm not going to make excuses for that. I've worked hard for that. It's what America is all about. What they don't realize is that I didn't have the anonymity to be able to do this privately. I couldn't."

Caitlyn further apologized for the mistakes she might have committed or the different ways she might have hurt the feelings of people and added that she did not do it intentionally.
