Reaching out publicly for the first time following her surprise split from Josh Murray, former Bachelorette Andi Dorfman posted an emotional message on her Instagram page Friday.
"It's family and friends who pick us up when we fall down, and if they can't pick us up, they lie down next to us and just listen and love," reads the quote she posted, which garnered nearly 36,000 'likes' in 15 hours.
Dorfman, 27, and Murray, 30, confirmed their breakup on Jan. 8, just three days after the duo looked happy at the season 19 premiere of the Bachelor. Dorfman surprised fans when she chose Murray over fellow contestant Nick Viall in last season's finale of The Bachelorette.

It's all about the dress.
That's Andi Dorfman's approach to wedding planning, she and fiancé Josh Murray told PEOPLE Monday at The Knot Gala in New York.
"The dress is kind of our first step," said the former Bachelorette, 27. "As a woman, I am just going to go ahead and say everything revolves around the dress. So, we will pick the theme, we will pick the venue, and we will pick the place based on the dress, I think."
