Ariana Grande isn't afraid to share her feelings with her fans.

The "Thank U, Next" singer took to Instagram on Saturday to share a Jim Carrey quote about depression that stuck with her.

"Depression is your body saying, 'I don't want to be this character anymore. I don't want to hold up this avatar that you've created in the world. It's too much for me,'" the quote begins. "You should think of the word 'depressed' as 'deep rest.'  Your body needs to be depressed. It needs deep rest from the character that you've been trying to play."

Grande added, "The whole LOML (love of my life) forever," on her post.

She also posted a close up photo of the actor, writing, "I love you so much," and confessing that her first AIM username was "jimcarreyfan42" when she was in fourth grade.

The post comes a couple days after Grande got candid about the hardships of performing live. When a fan praised her for finding a creative outlet to help her with her struggles, the singer replied in since-deleted tweets captured by fans, "Making it is healing. Performing it is like reliving it all over again and it is hell."

Grande continued, writing, "I just am sharing. It's hard and I'm trying and my soul is confused and tired and i love u."

"Having a routine is good for ptsd. been readin bout it. i would be sad without the shows too. imma be ok. might change the set list a lil," added.

In another tweet to a fan on Thursday, Grande confessed, "I just feel empty and i wanna have more to say / better energy to give to u and rn i don’t have anything. love u. 🖤💻."

Grande has been open with her fans about her feelings since the death of her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, and her subsequent break up with fiance Pete Davidson. However, the "No Tears Left to Cry" songstress has continued to give her fans her all.

Last week, she surprised Coachella-goers by reuniting 4/5 of *NSYNC and performing "Tearin' Up My Heart" during her Sunday set. Watch the exciting moment in the video below.
