“I was struggling pretty bad and I held it in for a long time and I think it manifested in other ways and kind of built up and was just heavy and a lot,” she shared in an Instagram Live. “I’m getting to the 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.”
More recently, she tried to move on from life’s challenges by changing up her hairdo. On Feb. 6, the Sacramento native showed off her new pink locks, saying, “I’ve been wanting to have some fun.”
As for Dale, he came out and said the split “has f–king rocked” him. “The situation with Clare, it’s f–king sucked, you know,” he said on Instagram. “And I think everyone looks for a right answer and a right way to handle these things… and there really isn’t one.”
The athlete added, “I felt so many emotions and so much guilt, but also so much confusion and so much hurt.”
While it seems as though Clare and Dale are on good terms, Bachelor Nation fans will have to see what happens next with the former couple, who quickly fell in love and left together during the fourth episode of The Bachelorette.
