Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of the late front man for the band Nirvana Kurt Cobain and singer Courtney Love, just celebrated a milestone.
On Thursday, Frances Bean Cobain wrote an Instagram post celebrating turning 30 years old.
She wrote, “30 !!! I made it!”
In her post she got personal and wrote that “20 year old Frances wasn’t sure that was going to happen.”
“At the time, an intrinsic sense of deep self loathing dictated by insecurity, destructive coping mechanisms [and] more trauma than my body or brain knew how to handle, informed how I saw myself and the world; through a lens of resentment for being brought into a life that seemingly attracted so much chaos and the kind of pain tied to grief that felt inescapable,” she shared.
Continuing, she wrote, “Then, an event on a plane which brought me closer in proximity to death is ironically the event that catapulted me towards running at this lived experience with radical gratitude. I’m glad to have proven myself wrong [and] to have found ways to transform pain into knowledge.”
She then referenced a quote by Dr. Jaiya John that she said she holds closely.
“’The softer she became with herself, the softer she became with the world.’ It’s a sentiment I try to remember daily,” she wrote.
She concluded her post by writing, “Entering this new decade I hope to stay soft no matter how hardening the world can feel at times, bask in the present moment with reverence, shower the people I am lucky enough to love with more appreciation than words could ever do justice [and] hold space to keep learning, so the growth never stops. I’m happy to be here [and] I’m happy you’re here too.”
Frances Bean Cobain was only a year old when her father, Kurt Cobain, died. He was 27 years old and believed to have committed suicide, according to ABC News.
