The ‘Be Happy‘ singer makes clear that happiness is for herself in the latest issue of the publication.
Having battled with addiction, abusive relationships and heartbreak, Mary’s voice has guided her out of unfortunate circumstances and today, she is focussed on the journey of Self-Love.
Speaking to Health on how she cares for her mental well-being, The Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul shared:
“I meditate and I pray on the things that are positive, not on the lies that are negative. Every time a negative thought comes, I push it down. I’m like, “That’s a lie. I rebut that. I don’t receive that.” It’s a practice, and you have to do it all day because negative thoughts come. If you’re not sleeping, they’re coming every second of the day. It’s a constant job, and you have to stay on it.”
On the importance of self-love, she shared:
“How to love ourselves. It’s still hard, but it’s getting better because I’m starting to understand where all the tricks come from. The tricks come from the things that were in the past—the lies that you believe about yourself that you do not have to believe if you love yourself”
Speaking on the importance of BLM, she also stated:
“The killing of George Floyd was atrocious—words cannot even describe it. At the same time, it was the catalyst for some change. It put a mirror up in front of all of us, but we still have such a long way to go. Racism has always been a problem, and this was the breaking point and caused a reaction around the world. There are so many things I want to see change, and things are changing, thank God.”
