"You know that part of sadness where you feel like a burden on everyone and annoying and nobody cares about you? Can we get rid of that part? It's like, 'Yo, I'm already sad. Got to add insult to injury that I have no one to talk to about it?'" the 33-year-old shared in a tearful video posted on Sunday. "It's crazy. Like why do we feel this way? Why do we feel this way when we get sad?"

The "Truth Hurts"singer went on to say "I don't want to feel this way anymore. I want to feel like I do have someone to talk to, people do care about me. I am loved. I'm not alone. That's how I want to feel but I don't feel like that."

Luckily, she was met with an outpouring of love and support from friends and fans on the social media platform who shared that she's not alone in that feeling. It's also not the first time that Lizzo has shared a similar sentiment with her online community.

"I'm depressed and there's no one I can talk to because there's nothing anyone can do about it," she wrote on a video posted to Instagram in June 2019. She also provided a caption that read, "But this too shall pass."

In response to those who praised her openness and "transparency" on TikTok, Lizzo later posted an update to share that she is taking necessary steps to feel better.

"I’m feeling better. I had a really rough night and a very emotional morning just thinking about my relationships and life and you know how it is. It gets dark," she said. "I'm definitely glad I reached out in any way that I could and TikTok was one of those ways and to feel received and seen and heard really helped me. I’m not crying anymore."

She encouraged everyone to use their self-care "tools" in the caption where she addressed that she's also "talking to my therapist today."

She concluded, "I’m gonna drink some tea and take a bath and post some food videos and put a little bit of love and positivity in the world. Thank you so much again. I love you guys. And if you're going through things, just know you're not alone. You're definitely not and I love you."
