"OOTD," she captioned the photo alongside a sunshine and rain cloud emoji. "Sometimes you just need to release some tears and create some space from whatever tension or build up has been stored in the body.

"In order to see the blue sky and warm sunshine on the other side you gotta walk through the fire of what can often feel overwhelming and daunting. Life is complicated and beautiful – and I'm here to embrace it all."

The two-time DWTS champion has been open about her mental health journey, speaking to People in 2019 about her issues with depression and anxiety. "I don't think a lot of people would know that about me because I come off as sunshine and happiness and positivity," she told the publication.

Julianne then spoke about how dance actually helped her with the battles, explaining: "Since I'm a dancer, I felt like that was my superpower my whole life. It really transformed my experience and gave me a way to express myself. [Dance] actually breaks the barrier so you get confidence within yourself, and it’s for nobody else but you."

She continued: "I put music on immediately, which helps my auditory and sensory experience with my body. So then my body is activated and I'm moving my body, which changes my whole energy level for the day. So I get to choose how I show up in the world, with all the external pressures."

The star's post comes as she prepares for her stint on the Dancing with the Stars tour, in which she will feature as a special guest on select dates.
