The 'Toxic' singer, 40, is currently on bad terms with the two sons she shares with ex-husband Kevin Federline, 44 - Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15.
Taking to Instagram to share her despair, the singer, who recently remarried, said on Saturday (September 10): "Literally, I have no purpose anymore. They were my joy. They were my everything.
"I look forward to seeing them. That was what I live for. And then all of a sudden, they were gone."
She went on to explain that there was a time when she was her sons' primary carer when they were younger.
"I mean, people don't remember that part because they always focused on the negative, but from when they were six to nine years old, I had them 70 percent of the time," she said.
"I don't understand how it's so easy for them, just to cut me off like that. I don't understand it."
Page Six reported this month that Britney hasn't seen her sons in around six months.
The trouble Britney was having with her children became explicit when her ex-husband shared a video of her reprimanding them to social media back in August.
However, fans were quick to defend the singer and said she was simply being a mother in the videos which saw her telling off her children four years ago.
Federline told ITV last month that his sons had decided to distance themselves from Britney because they were upset at her posting nudes on Instagram.
Jayden, meanwhile, said in an interview that he is taking space from his mother until she '[gets] better mentally.'
Britney's youngest son also defended Britney's father Jamie in the interview, saying that he doesn't deserve the hatred her fans direct at him over her now-removed conservatorship.
Jayden said there is 'no hate' between him and his brother and their mum and explained that the situation is fixable.
He said: "I 100 percent think this can be fixed. It's just going to take a lot of time and effort. I just want her to get better mentally. When she gets better I really want to see her again."
Britney said that she is taking the situation 'each day at a time' and said she was sharing her feelings about the situation on Instagram as her therapist is only available 'once a week'.
She said it was really' crucial' for her to 'feel like I can share.'
