However, the artist shared that some positivity came out of the hardships and lessons she learned around her mental well-being.

“This sounds so strange, but going through what I went through in the public eye kind of brought me back down to Earth,” says Carly. She adds that she and her fans cultivated a “beautiful relationship through Covid because they saw that I’m actually just a human being.”
