Try to mend what's left of my content incomprehension
As I take on the stress of the mess that I've made
Don’t know if I even care for "grown" if it's just alone, yeah .
And I guess the bad can get better
Gotta be wrong before it's right
Every happy phrase engraved in my mind
I've always been a go-getter
There's truth in every word I write
But still, the growing pains, growing pains
They're keeping me up at night
Behind the Lyric:
In her interview with Genius, she said that the song "Growing Pains" she made when she felt lost in everything she was doing, especially on her job.
In this song, you can feel the emotions of "not-ready enough" to growing up and how frightening it is to take on adult responsibilities.
In the “Pre-Chorus” section, tells that things are going better. She said, “I think all pain is something we can grow out of, or grow through, at some point. That was my way of saying this isn’t forever.” However, in this song, she has references to her album titled Know-It-All.
T-7 days until my gig at the Water Rats!
My songs are about emotions we are reluctant to admit to like fear of having noone to blame for our mistakes or shame for not being as brave and confident as we make ourselves to be

No one will tell you about the limit
They put on how long you can grieve
No one will warn you when you're winning
How heavy a loss love can be.
They do not tell you about the friendships
You'll lose once the lights are dimmed down
How humble you'll feel about your past bliss
Once the tables are turned around.
Nothing can shield you from the silence
Nights spent on his side of the bed
Praying for help to please stop crying
My life just got turned on its head
They fail to explain how complex love is...
Like why I mostly miss him as a friend
Or how big of a blow, it was for my ego
That she might be better for him... But I wanna tell you I got through
The hardest of times on my own
I made some mistakes,But I learned that I am strong.
And just because it hurts
Doesn't mean it isn't worth it
And even if it stings
It's just a temporary thing
I'm not saying that changing
Won't cost you love won't make you cry,
But it will all make sense.
When the growing pains subside.. #GrowingPains
No breaks in the work of breaking the system, just going in & in deep now & for the next 7 days. This is one of the most challenging processes I’ve been through and also one of the most necessary...& I’ve still got *so far* to go. I encourage all my beloved white folks to step up to this #meandwhitesupremacy challenge with @wildmysticwoman. Please watch her intro videos, peep the Read First highlight on her profile, and start with Day 1! This is Free, for FREEDOM, for All.

Todd LOVES a bath. Also, I'm pretty sure we've created a bed time monster. Kyle and I are both suckers for having Todd fall asleep in our arms. I'm a sucker for napping with Todd. Ugh. I know we have some habits to break and new ones that need to form. We could keep justifying these habits until the cows come home. After all, babies don't keep. 😭 #GrowingPains#GrowingBoy#WaterBaby#ToddAnthony
We all long to be acknowledged in some way. It’s not about getting attention but rather just knowing we each are valued for being who we are. It’s a longing to connect and somehow be heard. @rheavega #rheasjourney#innerengineering

My oldest has been sensitive to all the change and she has intuition like her mama. I keep breathing deep breaths and trying to give her space, but it’s hard. We all have feelings - space, understanding, and compromise are big lessons. •
In the moments where I’m trying to give her space to grow I try to remind myself of how gentle, loving, and so willing to pitch in that she is. Changing diapers like a pro. •

Sometimes, healing hurts - and that’s okay. Sometimes moving forward into freedom means being violently stripped of the people and the things and the thoughts that have been desperately trying to hold you back.
Sometimes a fresh start requires a fierce end. Sometimes healing means being brave enough to suffer temporarily, so that fullness of life can be experienced... eternally. Yeah, it hurts. Grimace if you must...
But choose to grow through it anyway.
SQUATS NOT SHOTS 💪🏾 you definitely have to put in work to grow your ass + abs naturally😹 actually your entire body “feels” the growth when you work out. I promise you don’t feel any of it when you’re looking in the mirror, when ppl are constantly complimenting you, or when you’re putting on your clothes ✨ those feelings make you keep going + push through the pain. In life you have to find things that motivate you to push through the growing pains!!
El alebrije me tiene envidia: hoy llegaron mis botas, luego de casi dos años de buscarlas y 4 meses pagándolas. Este par es prácticamente el gemelo de mis primeras #DrMartens .
Tenía 14 años, era 1990, hoy supe que #Luismi estaba rompiéndola ese año con #Culpableono y en la redacción de @culturacolectivanoticias estuvimos toda la mañana cantando. Me desconocí. Que es básicamente lo que hago desde febrero: no sé cómo es mi cuerpo, mi mente piensa, siente y me lleva a hacer lo que jamás consideré hacer. Salgo a las 7:15AM de la casa y de buenas, con ganas de sacar la chamba. Camino al trabajo y consigo concentrarme en lo que hago aunque a mi alrededor haya gente. Trabajo con gente que entiende que tengo diagnósticos psiquiátricos y que por ellos no me es tan fácil convivir, pensar, o hablar como todo mundo. Mi cuerpo se acostumbró a pesar 87, 89 kilos durante casi 18 años. Hoy pesa 72 y dice mi sobrino el médico que quiere que llegue a 67. Me siento como adolescente, cuando crecías hueso o músculo durante la noche y al día siguiente tropezabas con todo. Mi cuerpo se tropieza con todo, la ropa me queda como si yo fuera un gancho… pero lo mismo pasa con mi mente, estoy más ligera, menos obsesionada con el presente, con lo constante.
No sé quién soy, ando averiguando. Y eso hacía a los 14 años, cuando le pedí a mi papá dinero para ir al Tianguis del Chopo a conseguirme mis primeras Martens. Papá me llevó, no entró al tianguis -no lo dejé porque me daba miedo que le hicieran algo, siempre iba de traje y corbata de moño. Compré justo unas igualitas a estas, pero usadas, traídas de #UK .
Hoy, gracias a mi dealer de #Martens @fabiuluzz, mi adolescente de 14 años se encontró con mi nueva adolescente de 41.
La vida es cíclica y algo en los ciclos de mi vida se está cerrando por fin para que yo salga.
Gracias @pixidixidoo por la fotaza
THE HERO IS YOU ! I’ve seen some low, lows in my day. In all honesty, today was a rough one! BUT, We all have... and the fact is, No one can take the growing pains away. No one can heal your heart. No amount of talking it out or explaining yourself will mend burnt bridges, necessary fences, broken hearts or changes in seasons. They just ARE, they just WILL BE and you just ARE OK 💯 because ultimately, life is like a video game that we all take WAY TOO SERIOUSLY. You win some. You loose some. AND YOU STILL GET TO PLAY! So dust yourself off, ask God (the universe or whatever external force you speak to) what you’re to do next and #float when you’re not sure where to swim!!! #grafsaidso#realtalk#lifelessons#courtneygraf#countrysoul#mariahcarey#coversong#growingpains @mariahcarey you’re #awesome 🤗❤️💯🤘🏼
Obliterating the #lie of not-good-enough.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is how it goes…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’re ready to stretch yourself in a new direction. Maybe to make a career change, or start a new arm of your business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’re excited, and you’re going for it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then…doubt creeps in.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All the excuses start.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That little voice inside starts whispering,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Who are YOU to do this? So many other people already do the same thing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What if no one likes it or I get criticized?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What if I fail?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m not ready . . .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last week, I had literally four of these exact same conversations – with a colleague, a mentor and two coaching clients. (NOTE: It doesn't matter WHAT stage of business or life you're in!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’re not special because you have self-doubt. Baaasically...it’s a universal challenge.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here’s the thing: Whenever you evolve into your next “growth ring,” fear and insecurity are inevitable. This is THE definition of moving out of your comfort zone.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you grow, you are not supposed to be comfortable. That’s why it’s called “Growing Pains”.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So how can you muster the courage to move forward with the fear + self-doubt? I'm tackling this head on in my NEW VIDEO >> Link in Bio | http://bit.ly/ObliterateNGE⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Be thankful for the hard times. Going through the fire teaches you so much about yourself. Take the time to reflect on those times when you were tested and pushed to your limits. Look at them through a positive filter. What did you learn? This is where you have the greatest opportunity to identify your gifts because you get broken down to your most raw form and have to dig so deep within yourself to keep going. #GrowingPains
“ I can choose to suffer or I can choose to accept life as harsh as it has become and try to make it slightly better as it is today or it will be tomorrow “. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To some people. When they meet a person who may smile and Laugh a-lot. They might think that their personality isn’t genuine. People compare happiness to child like actions. I have gotten questions that assume I just like Christmas and children’s books. & that I am I gullible or too weak minded. That I won’t stand up for myself or speak on the truth.
But in reality I just enjoy life as it happens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, to the people who laugh and smile at everything. To the people who are genuinely in touch with their emotions and want peace and love for the world. Don’t change. We love you. Continue to be your best self and take on the challenges life has to offer us. Because if we don’t. We just remain the same.
Everyone can't go where you're going. Don't force it. If they can't see your vision, leave them behind. Otherwise they'll just slow you down and take you off track. It's ok. Really, it's a good thing because it allows you to make room for the people you are going to meet along the way who will help you. #GrowingPains
Tomorrow marks one month in Denver and I couldn’t be happier with where I’m at. This month has been a journey of self exploration that has tested me in ways I didn’t anticipate. It’s been a beautiful mess of feelings, some of which I’ve never really experienced before. Moving to a new city is exciting but it’s also met with the feeling of leaving something behind and the anxieties of starting completely from scratch. Colorado has its undeniable beauty and I’m constantly in awe of it and every new adventure awaiting to be explored, but I’ve been more surprised by the people here. I’ve learned a lot about getting comfortable with the uncomfortable. Growth comes from putting yourself in uncomfortable situations, the ones you usually pass up because feeling comfortable feels good. It’s familiar. I’ve put myself into a lot of uncomfortable situations and I’ve found so much love on the other side. I’m grateful for all of the inclusive communities of amazing people I’ve become part of in such a short space of time. I get it. I really fucking get why people fall in love with this place. #acro#coloRADo#growingpains
