"The Pains of Growing Up" Shows Alessia Cara In A Whole New Light And That Is Good For The Growing Generation

Growing up is an exhilarating experience. The thrill of being free, of being undisturbed, and having the ability to do whatever you want and almost get away with it. The thrill of having to be cared for, cherished, protected and loved. It is a period filled with love and warm affection. A period when you're being groomed and guided to become the best you can possibly become and achieve your best dreams. Sometimes I wish that I could relive my childhood. But as much as it is sweet and lovely, growing up comes with a lot of work. It is filled with uncertainties and responsibilities. Uncertainties in the sense that you are in constant awe of yourself and your body due to its developmental process and do not know the next surprise it might whip up soon. And responsibilities in the sense that as you continue to grow, soon you can no longer get away with your vices, but will be made to face them and make them right. As if that isn't enough, your heart comes with the greatest surprise ever, springing up with a different kind of affection that is different from the ones you've experienced all your life, but beautiful in its own way. This kind of affection is emotional and free. It is a beautiful feeling of wanting to love a total stranger and be loved back, but it becomes painful when that love is not returned. Everyone experiences these and Alessia Cara is not an exception. Her second studio album, "The Pains of Growing Up", beautifully documents her experiences while growing up. The 15-track album shifts attention from the usual love stories Alessia Cara is known for to something more personal; the troubles and pains she experienced as a teenager and how they affected her, but also how her decisions and the paths she followed eventually turned out for her.

The Pains of Growing, yes and sometimes it hurts a lot

Nobody like Alessia Cara, to portray that stage through which all human beings spend in which growing causes pain sometimes unbearable. With the aesthetics of her time, the genre that best adapts to her lyrics and a poetic sincerity like few others, the singer dares to say what many are silent. To describe what she herself has gone through and, at the same time, to coincide with all those who are at that moment in her life and all of us who have already gone through it, is simply great. It is an album to listen carefully. Adolescence is the most frequent stage in which this happens, although I believe that even there are several moments in life in which you question your existence and the purpose of being here and now. However, I do believe that this age of transition between childhood and youth represents a challenge for all, overcoming is not easy, finding answers, less. And it hurts, yes, it hurts a lot. Those moments in which we doubt everything, and we realize that it is not how our parents told us or promised it. That moment when your own identity is something you're not sure about. All the problems that you face are a puzzle without a solution, a labyrinth with no way out and You do not find anything or anyone to give an answer for the why? of many things. The dilemmas of love are often unsettling. You do not know where to start, you do not even know where the decision you take will take you or the direction in which you decide to walk. You spend long moments yearning for your recent childhood, you think you were happier and now everything is a problem. You see old family photos or put a video to remember an old birthday, beach vacations, Christmas memories. The eyes betray you and the tears begin to roll down your cheeks. Why did those moments go? You ask yourself. Why do I have to be in these dilemmas now and with these new needs that I do not know how to satisfy? Everyone is busy, nobody has time for you, for your doubts, for your dreams, to receive a hug as before. You have to fend for yourself, without anyone's help or this whole infinitely cruel world will eat you in one bite, you will disappear from everyone's sight and no one will miss you. Nobody prepares you to face life in that way and, at the same time, nobody knew how to face it at the time, so maybe the tips are left over, because there are no answers to your unknowns of life, because your life is unique and unrepeatable, and only you will know what to do to take away the blows that come to you. They say that what does not kill you, strengthens you, and if that is true, then welcome the stage where you will learn new things, even if they are painful because, in the end, growth will turn you into a giant, a wise, a better person.
