BACHELORETTE star Clare Crawley says she's okay with being "hurt" in order to experience "soul shattering love" as she reunites with her ex-fiancé Dale Moss.
The pair are back together after being separated a few weeks.
The TV star took to her Instagram Stories to share quite the head-turning quote that kicked off: "The trick is, you have to want to experience great, deep, soul-shattering love more than you want to protect yourself from hurt.
"Because truthfully, we can never guarantee we won't get hurt, but what we can guarantee is that in the process of protecting ourselves, ew will also be preventing ourselves from ever feeling fully loved."
Back in January, Clare, 39, and Dale, 32, parted ways as the former NFL player confirmed the split in January, saying at the time: "I wanted to share with you all that Clare and I have decided to go our separate ways…"
Clare would later shade her ex's statement, releasing her own and saying: "I was made aware of a 'mutual' statement at the same time you all were, so I've needed some time to really digest this.
"Speaking for myself, my intentions with this relationship have always been very clear, so the truth is I'm crushed…"
The reality star added: "Our relationship was not perfect, but I can say that I was genuinely invested with all of my heart…"
Previously, it was alleged Dale - who recently shared a nearly nude video - had cheated on Clare with a former New York City fling, real estate agent Eleonora Srugo - Dale would deny the claims, but admit to "mistakes."
The split didn't last long as the famous couple were then spotted holding hands in Florida - they were then seen making out on the beach.
However, Eleonora would find herself back between the pair as she seemed to shade Dale after sharing a selfie.
After a social media user wrote on the post: "You bought Kardashian hips to get the likes of Dale? He’s nothing special and has no money," Elenora responded.
She wrote: "Preach, girl. [I] didn’t pay for my hips, got it from my mama.
"Def never used them for that [punk]. ‘Has no money’ may be the only factual part of this comment."
When another commented on her photo having "some very vibrant moss" in the background, and someone joked, "Yeah, kinda reminds me of like … Dale?" Eleonora replied: "Much more beautiful, no?"

The 32-year-old would later explaine that "anger got the best of her."
The shade came less than a month after she denied rumors she had cheated with Dale, calling them "platonic friends."
Dale and Clare first shocked Bachelor Nation after getting engaged just two weeks after meeting on season 16 of The Bachelorette.
