‘The Bachelor’ Spoilers: Jaclyn Swartz Praises Carly Waddell For Getting Over Evan Bass
During an interview with Us Weekly, Jaclyn praised Carly for keeping it together in what must have been a difficult period. She said: “Carly is such a strong, independent woman. She bought her own house, and she’s such an amazing mother. She’ll be OK. But I think it was a shock to everyone, you know, including Carly.”
The manner of the split was well documented and publicised, much to the annoyance of Carly, given that Evan’s ex Marie Bass had gotten involved. Marie shockingly claimed that the duo had split before an official announcement had been made by the couple. And naturally, Carly fired back. In a video posted on Youtube, she told her fans the following:
“There’s been weird stuff going on about people asking me when we separated. We separated the day after Thanksgiving. We’ve been going to therapy for years. We tried for a really long time to make it work. We went to therapy. We focused a lot more on the kids than we focused on ourselves, and, ultimately, I think that was our biggest downfall. If you don’t have a foundation for yourself, then you crumble.”
Despite the anger at the time, Carly has become more mellow and learnt to deal with things in a calmer fashion. So much so that she has not put any pressure on herself to find an ideal partner and rather focus on finding peace within herself. She told her fans: “This is coming from a place of where I’m at in life right now. I think that there’s a lot of people out there that can work with a lot of different people.
“For the most part, you have to, like, love yourself first and give yourself enough love and attention and compassion and awareness to be able to find your own happiness and not seek it through other people. Because I think when you love yourself, you end up exuding this, like, peace and love and confidence. And I feel like that’s what also draws people in.”
