Tammin Sursok is opening up about painful family loss. 

The Pretty Little Liars actress took to Instagram on Friday to share that she is "hurting this holiday season" in an emotional letter to fans. 

"It’s been hard for me to be on social media this week," Sursok began her post. "We have been going through something as a family and it’s hard to mask what we are feeling. I always want to be authentic with you."

"Last week was the first time I’ve experienced loss. That’s as much as I’m going to say right now but I do want to write about what we have been through at some point to help anyone who is also going through it," she continued. "The holiday season is beautiful but sometimes you hurt and it’s messy and confusing and irritating. You become angry and you don’t know at who to be angry. You realize that your anger just stems from pain."

"So if you are hurting this holiday season, for any reason, know I’m with you and I see you. And the only way out is through," Sursok concluded. "Together we got this ❤️."
