In that video, Maddie Marlow admitted that she had suffered from a deep depression after the duo was dropped from their record label.
“If I’m being honest, I went through a really, pretty tough depression after the label thing happened,” Marlow explained in the video. “I kind of always was the person that had a plan, had it figured out, and I never kind of been like dropped on my ass before.”
“That was really hard and my self worth was tied into it, my purpose, everything. I truly look in the mirror and love who I am today because of the pain that I had to go through to get here,” she continued. “I’m not going to allow my trials to defeat me, I’m going to let them build me up and learn from them and take as much wisdom as I can from each trial.”
Marlow opens up about her struggle around the 5 minute mark.
