Ariana Grande has been traveling all over the world for her Sweetener tour, but over the weekend she had to cancel a meet-and-greet with Belgium fans because of anxiety and depression.

US Weekly explains that the singer went to her Instagram story to address the situation. She wrote, “Hi my loves. Time for some honesty. My depression and anxiety have been at an all-time high lately. I have been giving you all I’ve got and trying to push through as hard as I can mask it.”

“Today has been an extra rough one. After a handful of panic attacks, I feel the wisest decision would be not to do soundcheck party or m&g today and preserve my energy for the show.”

“I don’t want to rush through our time together or seem shaky, I like spending actual time with you and I won’t be able to present or give you the best of me today.”

“I wish I had control over these attacks but as anybody with anxiety or depression understands, sometimes you can only operate on its terms and not your own.”
