If you’re not yet familiar with the name Darla Jade, you’ll be very soon. The UK singer-songwriter is quickly gaining buzz all around the world. Tinged with an underlying 80’s electronica feel to her productions, Darla’s music is sure to get your head nodding. But it’s her latest single Broken Armour that really showcases her songwriting chops. The song is about self-healing, making it a powerful anthem for anyone who has ever felt broken.
“It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.” That’s a phrase we hear all too often, but it’s especially true when it comes to healing. In Broken Armour, Darla examines the process of overcoming sadness and how it can be both rewarding and challenging. It’s through our struggles that we learn and grow, and eventually we find the strength to take care of ourselves.
The first step to healing is admitting that you’re not okay and that you need to do something about it. Don’t try to do it all on your own—reach out for help when necessary. Once you’ve acknowledged that you need to heal, the next step is to start the process. This can be anything from making small changes to major ones. Just start somewhere and go at your own pace.
