Heather Morris on reaching 1 million Instagram followers

Glee's Heather Morris celebrated 1 million Instagram followers this week.

However, she admitted she was initially, 'resentful,' because she gained them from a tragedy.

Her onscreen partner and real-life bestie Naya Rivera passed away earlier this month.

In celebration of hitting 1 million followers, Heather shared a video of herself dancing to Naya's music.

The actress captioned the post, 'I want to share something very personal with you all...'

'Grieving looks very differently on everyone...but one things for certain: I’ve felt it’s hard to feel joy or keep busy when mourning without thinking that you’re not honoring that person or you’re forgetting about them.'

Heather said her husband Taylor Hubbell reminded her, 'that honoring someone can mean you’re enjoying your life FOR them...'

She wrote, 'I made it to 1M followers in these last few weeks and at first I was resentful because I gained them from a tragedy, but after giving it a breath.. I realized you all have just surrounded me with love and support.'

She finished, 'So I’m celebrating 1Million today in a tribute to @nayarivera with her music and her voice that will forever be my favorite'
