Beautiful Pain by Eminem featuring Sia, contributed by Autumn Johnson (2019)
As the title suggests, “Beautiful Pain” is about reframing the way we view the struggles in our lives. Because we have endured and overcome pain, we can be grateful for the experience and the strength that we have demonstrated in our perseverance. The song makes use of the image of a phoenix to further demonstrate the theme of perseverance. Like the phoenix born again from ash, we emerge from our struggles a new version of ourselves.
