Ariana Grande could barely “breathe” Monday after she read a tweet from actor Jim Carrey praising the singer following her posts about depression.

“Thank [you] so much for your kindness. I don’t think [you] understand how much I adore [you] or what [you] mean to me,” the 25-year-old singer tweeted Monday to her millions of followers. (RELATED: Ariana Grande’s Latest Body Art Is Both Bizarre And Confusing)

The comments came in response to a post from the “Dumb and Dumber” star reacting to the singer’s Instagram story over the weekend about how she learned to use the term “Deep Rest” in place of the word “Depression” from the 57-year-old comedian.

“.@ArianaGrande I read your lovely mention of me and things I’ve said about depression. A brilliant teacher and friend, Jeff Foster was OG on the ‘Deep Rest’ concept,” Carrey tweeted. “I admire your openness. I wish you freedom and peace. I feel blessed to have such a gifted admirer. Happy Easter!”

Grande’s original post Saturday included a quote about how depression actually meant a person’s body just “needs deep rest,” per E! News.

“Depression is your body saying, ‘I don’t want to be this character anymore. I don’t want to hold up this avatar that you’ve created in the world,” the quote credited to Carrey read. “It’s too much for me.”

“You should think of the word ‘depressed’ as ‘deep rest,'” it added. “Your body needs to be depressed. It needs deep rest from the character that you’ve been trying to play.”

Grande closed out the piece writing, “The whole LOML [love of my life] forever.”
