Taking to TikTok recently, the 33-year-old artist ashared a video of her wiping away tears and opening up about her complicated emotions.
“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,” asked Lizzo. “It’s like, yo, I’m already sad. Gotta add insult to injury that I got no one to talk to about it?”
The Grammy winner posed a question to her fans while using a tissue to dab away her tears. , asking, “Why do we feel this way when we get sad?”
“I don’t want to feel this way anymore,” continued Lizzo. “I want to feel like I do have someone to talk to, people do care about me.”
The “Juice” singer closed out her video with a mantra that expressed that her current negative feelings do not reflect real life.
“I am loved. I’m not alone,” she expressed before crying harder. “That’s how I want to feel but I don’t feel like that.”
