Selena Gomez explained to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, about the song that she says has given her an outlet to truly speak her mind. The singer said that there's just so much bottled up, and she thinks that she does a good job, hopefully, of being cautious and being aware of other people's feelings.

The actress said that she is very vague and can be very politically correct, and in her music, she gets to really say what she feels. Selena Gomez continued that she thinks that's why the song means so much to her, and in a different way than any of her other songs only because she has attached this to her mental health and is addressing what it is. She said she means, it's completely cathartic for her and thinks it goes so well with the documentary.

Bipolar disorder medications, according to a doctor-reviewed WebMD article, have the potential to cause birth defects such as neural tube defects, heart defects, growth retardation, or neurobehavioral problems. Some doctors, however, recommend continuing such medications until childbirth because bipolar signs can deteriorate during pregnancy.

My Mind & Me will be streaming on Apple TV+ on November 4th.
