Clayton Echard Shares Never-Before-Seen Notes from His Time as the Bachelor: ‘It’s Encouraging to See How Far I’ve Come’
Keeping it real.
On Clayton Echard’s season of “The Bachelor,” fans saw him open up about his struggle with mental health and self-confidence.
He’s continued to share his story and help others on social media since his time on the Bachelor Nation shows.
Now, Clayton is getting vulnerable with fans and just shared some never-before-seen notes from his very first days as the Bachelor.
Clayton took to his Instagram Stories to share some of his night one speech that he wrote out to say to the women he was meeting.
Alongside the note, Clayton wrote, “Found this throwback! This was my rough draft of my ‘night one’ speech I gave to the women when I was the Bachelor. I wanted to perfect the speech, but ended up getting nervous and spilling my drink halfway through!”
In the note, Clayton says that he wanted to thank the women for being there and that he was also scared, nervous, and skeptical about dating in this untraditional way.
He also noted that he truly believes that everything happens for a reason so he hopes things will unfold the way they are supposed to.
Clayton shared another note from his first day of filming right before the women’s limo entrances.
Alongside this journal entry, Clayton wrote, “And here was my reflection upon the first day of filming before the limo entrances. It’s encouraging to see how far I’ve come with my self confidence! I wrote down these affirmations in the positive self talk section because I was already doubting myself the first day into the experience.”
Some of those affirmations are “I was chosen for a reason, I’m worth fighting for, I am proud of who I am and what I’ve become, I am more than enough, I will continue to become better at being comfortable with being uncomfortable.”
We’re also so proud of Clayton for how far he has come and we love seeing these moments of growth from his days as the Bachelor.
