Ahead of night two of Clare Crawley's season of The Bachelorette, she shared several quotes on her Instagram story that she says have helped her through some really difficult times. 

"I just posted a bunch of quotes on my story because ... they're quotes that have helped me get through a lot of hard times that I don't think I've ever shared with a lot of people," she said. "Vulnerability is hard. But I think on tonight's episode of the show you'll see...I'll open up a little bit more about things I've been through. And I share it not to be like, 'woe is me,' but more because I know there are people out there who are going through and have gone through similar things. And I share this stuff not as like a weakness, but my source of strength. ... That's why I put up the quotes, because people have no idea what others are going through and what it takes to be a strong woman to get where you are today. I mean, it's not an easy path and I applaud other women who are giving it their best, too." 

These are the quotes that she shared to her Instagram story prior to giving us that beautiful message of hers. 

1. "Do the hard thing. Have the scary conversation. Choose the uncertain future. Take the risk. Be yourself. Speak your mind and share your soul. Because when you do the hard thing, when you are able to stand up and count on yourself even when you don't want to and don't feel like it, when you are able to know who you truly are in the trying times, something magical happens. And that magical thing is real life." - Long Distance Love Bombs
