Lizzo says ‘pain is temporary’ in moving Twitter post

American singer Lizzo

Lizzo says “pain is temporary” in an emotional and inspirational social media post.

The Truth Hurts hitmaker shared some encouraging words to her Twitter followers this week, as she urged her fans to “nurture yourself” rather than focusing on whatever it is that has caused them pain.

“The pain eventually goes away…”

She tweeted: “Think about how it feels to stub your toe… It hurts, but the pain eventually goes away…

“Pain is temporary, it’s the feeling that remains that matters… Really pay attention to who u r when ur neutral & nurture yourself… Because that’s who’ll always be there when the pain fades (sic)”

Meanwhile, the Juice singer previously said she often gets anxious before she’s due to perform, but doesn’t let her nerves get the better of her, as she uses them to make her a better artiste.

She explained: “When I get really, really anxious before a show, I just go harder and harder and harder when I’m performing and I just go crazy. I don’t know why, but my anxiety sometimes fuels who I am as a performer and who I am as an artiste – and I know that is not the case for everyone.
