Ariana Grande may create music as a way to heal, but performing her songs on stage is a different story.

On Thursday, a fan took to Twitter to praise the "No Tears Left to Cry" songstress for finding a creative outlet to help her with her struggles.

"Music is your therapy and I love seeing it heal you," the fan wrote to Grande. The singer took notice of the tweet, however, her reply was not one many fans were expecting.

"Making it is healing. Performing it is like reliving it all over again and it is hell," she candidly wrote in a since-deleted tweet captured by fans.

As fans continued to share their thoughts and concerns with her, 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," she wrote in another tweet.

It's no secret that Grande has had a couple of tumultuous months, stemming from the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller and her and subsequent break up with fiance Pete Davidson.

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. ??."

However on Friday, she appeared to be in better spirits as she sang along to the Krusty Krab Pizza song from SpongeBob SquarePants. The show's lead character, replied to her Instagram post, writing, " Jumping jellyfish! We THOUGHT we loved this song... now we REALLY love this song ?."

Additionally on Friday, after a fan asked her how she was feeling, Grande shared that she was a "lil better. i’m so happy i have y’all. and that y’all hear me and care. truly."

This weekend, Grande returns to the Coachella stage for weekend two. Relive her first Coachella performance with *NSYNC in the video below.
