Ariana Grande opened up to her fans this weekend with a heartfelt message on Instagram about overcoming her emotional struggles.

The “thank u, next” singer shared the message as she prepares to head out to her third tour on March 18. She opened up about some of the emotionally challenging moments of the last few years. While she didn’t go into specifics, Grande did suffer the loss of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller last September and called off her engagement to Pete Davidson shortly afterward. All of this after a devastating terror attack at her concert in Manchester in May of 2017.

Grande told her fans that their love and the music “saved my life.”

“A few months ago I told my team I wasn’t even in an okay enough place to tour or work at all and my friends,” she wrote. “You guys and this music really saved my life and turned everything around. I’m still healing but I feel a lot lighter as of late and I think this is really going to be such a beautiful time.”
