Still fresh off her split from Dale Moss, former "The Bachelorette" star Clare Crawley is only now starting to come out of the "dark place" she was in.
"I'm getting to a point now where I'm trying really hard to come back from that and make a U-Turn because it's a dark place to be in when you've got a lot of stuff compiled on each other," she said on Instagram Live.
The hairstylist and the male model split in mid-January following a love-at-first-sight romance that played out on "The Bachelorette."
Clare noted that she's had panic attacks and severe anxiety since her time on the show. She acknowledged that some of that is due to her mother's health, the coronavirus pandemic and hurtful messages from online critics.
"And to know… in spite of all that, like you are loved and you will be loved by the right person for all that you bring to the table, whether it's the good, the bad, everything that we bring to the table, the right person is going to love you for that," she said.
One day after Clare's comments, Dale got emotional while opening up about the split.
"I felt so many emotions, so much guilt, but also so much confusion, so much hurt, and I know that we both have," he said on Instagram. "And looking for so many answers – before this even happened on how to make things better. But the reality of of it is, life isn't perfect. And we make mistakes. I've made a lot of them, I know we all do. My pops would always say you gotta hurt before you heal."
