'I did it because of my pride and I was embarrassed to share what happened to me … but honestly who doesn't want to capture there Instagram in a fun light,'

wrote the 39-year-old via Instagram on Thursday.

Along with her own text, Spears included a photo of a child running through a field with the Albert Einstein quote:

'If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.'

Britney began Thursday's lengthy post by recalling how her mother Lynne would 'always [pretend] like everything was ok' for the sake of her and her siblings growing and how she drew upon that practice in her adult life.

'I just want to tell you guys a little secret … I believe as people we all want the fairy tale life and by the way I've posted … my life seems to look and be pretty amazing,' she wrote. 

'I think that's what we all strive for !!!! That was one of my mother's best traits … no matter how sh***y a day was when I was younger … for the sake of me and my siblings she always pretended like everything was ok.

'I'm bringing this to peoples attention because I don't want people to think my life is perfect because IT'S DEFINITELY NOT AT ALL,' she stressed.

Referring to Wednesday's bombshell testimony, Britney wrote: 'and if you have read anything about me in the news this week … you obviously really know now it's not !!!!'

'I apologize for pretending like I've been ok the past two years … I did it because of my pride and I was embarrassed to share what happened to me … but honestly who doesn't want to capture there Instagram in a fun light!!!!

She went on to admit that 'pretending that I'm ok has actually helped' her mental well being and that she 'decided to post this quote today because by golly if you're going through hell.' 

Spears continued:

'I feel like Instagram has helped me have a cool outlet to share my presence … existence … and to simply feel like I matter despite what I was going through and hey it worked.
