Fans have been pretty worried about Dove Cameron ever since she posted a photo of herself crying to Instagram, and now, the Disney actress just admitted that she’s been feeling “pretty sad” for “a while.”

“I’m pretty sad. Have been for awhile, I think, and that’s OK,” she wrote on Twitter on Friday, March 6.

The blonde beauty continued, “If you’re sad, remember you’re not alone. Everyone is human. Objectifying others and ourselves is so deep in our current culture, we forget that, no matter what it looks like and what we think we know, we don’t know what someone is going through. We all hurt. Let’s help each heal.”

For those who missed it, the former Descendants star had her fans concerned when she shared an up-close snap of her face on March 3, 2020, which showed a single tear rolling down her cheek. She captioned it with the crying emoji.

I am so proud of the woman you became.”

“I know you’re working right now so please try to keep your head up, OK? I love you more than anything in the world, and you have made my life so much better,” another worried fan added. “I love you, Dove.”

As fans know, the 24-year-old has been super open about her mental health issues in the past. Back in July 2019, she told Seventeen, “I would call myself incredibly anxious, and I have dealt with depression. And I do have episodes of absolutely what feels like mania or something that is like I’m all of a sudden in the pits of despair. I can’t get myself out. I’m on the floor and I’m crying. I was scared when I was younger to talk about certain topics because there are a lot of people in this industry that tell you not to speak about a lot of things. Then as you get older you’re kind of like, wait, no, maybe I know better. Maybe I don’t care about what you think. Maybe the risk is much less important than the gain. And I think so much normalcy would come from demystifying a lot in our own personal lives for younger people to look at.”
