Jackie about her struggles with mental health.
(26 june 2023)

Jackie revealed on her Facebook Page the inspiration behind her new song 'Get Out of My Life', you can listen to this new song in the video below.

"It took me a bit to work up the courage to do this," Jackie said on the video. "I'm talking about something that's very personal... And it's something I think we all struggle with because of these societal pressures to attain something that is just not attainable — and that is, perfection. Growing up being told that in order to do the thing you love most, it must be perfection, you must look perfect, sound perfect, behave perfectly as a 10-year-old child, is a challenge. Big challenge," Jackie shared. "And it's created these deep pressures in me that I place on myself to this very day. It's a bit of a confrontational video and that's okay. Sometimes we need to confront our demons and that is exactly what I'm doing.

'As I've gotten older I've realized I don't need everybody's approval," Jackie said. "I don't need everybody to like me or what I sound like. Recently I've discovered something that I had all along... my voice. I want to take my power back, be bold when facing my past demons, and share what I learn through my music. Being imperfect is perfectly ok, and that's exactly how this song came to be. Enjoy," Jackie added.

Titled 'Get Out of My Life', Jackie said the track was recorded in the middle of the night using headphone microphones and an iPad, and while she sometimes sees herself as her harshest critic, she's learning that she doesn't need everybody to like her or what she sounds like.

Calling it a 'dark and painful' time, Jackie said she would not let her illness stand in the way of her music career. "Since I was a kid I've put so much blood, sweat and tears into my career, and to see that sort of fade away because of this demon in my head?. No, I'm going to fight this now because you can't take this one thing from me."

Jackie added, "And I kind of believe it is partly causing my eating disorder, my anxieties and all those other things on the list". Despite that, Jackie, who has been facing the pressures of the music industry since she was just a kid promised to "face it," and did so in part by posting a song that she wrote last year that is the exact opposite of what she was preached to be: imperfect.
