"This song talks about toxicity in a relationship. I'm going to say that it has double meaning, kasi 'yung toxicity in a relationship, for example, nasaktan ka nang bongga, tapos siguro may something na domestic violence na nangyari... But sa akin din naman, sa double meaning na 'to, it's about letting go of that toxicity that you have in your mind. The toxicity I'm talking about is depression, anxiety. 'Yung parang feeling mo wala ka nang self-worth, value. 'Yung hindi ka na kuntento na," she said.

"I've been through depression," she then admitted. "[I've asked myself kung] tatapusin ko na ba. Tatapusin ko na ba lahat? You know what I mean...Because I was in darkness. Na-try kong kinulong ko 'yung sarili ko sa room ko. Andoon lang ako in a dark room, thinking about nothing. I don't want to get up. I don't want to go sing again. Parang nawalan ako ng gana."

But then, Sheryn realized that there is still hope, and that she has to love herself in order for her to survive depression.

"Na-realize ko, and I prayed. Na-realize ko, oh meron pa, meron pa. I have to love myself. I have to respect myself also for me to get up," she said.

The Kapamilya singer went on to share her message for those who are also struggling with their mental health, reminding them that there is still hope and that they are not alone. 

"There are a lot of people who can relate to this. Maraming gustong bumitaw. Marami talaga. But please don't. There's still tomorrow. There's still hope. And you are not alone. I am one of you. We can get through this. You are not alone," she said.

In her interview, Sheryn also opened about overcoming thyroid cancer and having a second chance at life. She also talked about her life in the US with her daughter, Sweetie, and her decision to make her showbiz comeback here in the Philippines.
