Clare, 39, took to Instagram on Friday to do a Live on the social media platform when she talked about how she doing after her very public break-up.
As she talked about “the stress” she was going through after The Bachelorette, she noted how she was dealing with panic attacks and anxiety.
She said: “I held it in and tried to play strong and be strong for so long – I am a strong person but like – I tried to be that for so long that I didn’t share my struggles with anxiety and what I was going through because I don’t want to be a victim, and I still don’t want to be that, but I think there’s so much to be said about being human and seeing each other as humans.
“Long story short, thinking about how I haven’t shared much with you because I’m trying to put out there that we are survivors, we’re thrivers, we do try our best for happiness and I did you guys a disservice and myself a disservice.

“Sharing what you’re going through and the not so perfect parts or the struggles, I think when you open yourself up to share the stuff you’re going through, not as a victim, but vulnerability and more as the human side of you.
“It gives people the opportunity to relate to it and share their own struggles.”
She then thanked her fans for sending positivity and encouragement.
Clare also recounted that when she was at the nail salon, they recognized her from the show and “were extra nice” to her.

She recounted as she held back her tears: “The girl there gave me such a nice shoulder massage and it meant so much to me because she did that to be kind.
“When we share what we go through and people understand and relate, it gives them a chance to love you and it has made all the difference to me.”

Towards the end of her Live, Clare encouraged her followers to find happiness in all the little things, saying: “My idea of love and to be loved is to have all of our that we go through, all the stuff that we experienced in life, whether it’s whatever you want to call it, like baggage, experiences, traumas, whatever we go through, whatever we carry with us, show up with it.
“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.”

Just yesterday, Clare revealed she had spent most of her days in sweatpants after Dale broke off their engagement.
“We appreciate the love and support we’ve received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time.”
It was claimed that Dale had cheated on Clare with Eleonora Srugo
“We strongly believe in leading with love and always remaining true to oneself – something our families have taught and instilled in us throughout our lives. We only hope the best things for one another.”
He added: “Please respect our privacy as we work through this together.”
The breakup became “messy” when rumors arose that Dale, 32, had cheated on Clare with a woman from his past, Eleonora Srugo.

Dale strongly denied the rumors of his infidelity, as he slammed the “lies” on his Instagram account.
He said: “People will spread lies and point the finger but the fact of the matter is there’s not one person to blame in this situation and like every relationship, we’ve had our ups and downs and have gone through our things but the things that came out, these things came out of nowhere.

“And I love and respect Clare enough to let her know how I feel, it’s gonna take time – I wanted nothing more than this relationship to work and I put my heart and soul into it each and every day.
“And I wanted nothing more than to build a healthy relationship, while this is going to be difficult, what you’ll see from me is trying to practice what I preach and continue to put my best foot forward each and every day.
“I’m also gonna try to find joy and happiness in each day and continue to share that, and everything else is in God’s hand, so.”
