Frances Bean Cobain released a note on Instagram on her 31st birthday, reflecting on her life and past experiences. She also expressed her sorrow for her parents, Kurt Cobain, and Courtney Love in the captions that accompanied the images of her friends and family. Toward the end of her post, after recounting her life experiences, the artist mentioned her parents and wrote: “Embrace failure as a means of learning how to do things differently.” Death is our most important teacher; it is what makes life so valuable. Meditate, exercise, and be thankful for your health. When your inner child is hurt, remember that your parents did the best they could with the resources they had.” She delved into her relationship with herself and others throughout the letter: “Forgive yourself and others for not always understanding what it means to be human.” Allow yourself to let go of what you can’t control, which is practically everything. Accept that you have control over your perspective and decisions. You can never tell someone you love them too much, so celebrate them frequently and enthusiastically!” Cobain continued, giving some life advice: “Be of assistance. Be of service to oneself as well. Falling in love with someone who offers you the gift of tranquility, makes you laugh till your stomach hurts, and has sympathy while you’re going through a tough time is priceless. Pet dogs, play with kittens, practice goat yoga if the occasion arises, and don’t forget to save the bees!” She added the following to her to-do list: “Cook even if you’re terrible at it—giggle with your friends about ridiculous things you see on the internet.
” When you’re being creative, don’t be afraid to get a little sloppy. Experiment with things that frighten you. Take care of your plants. Please be patient. Remember to take deep breaths. Take up space even if it isn’t always pleasant. Be polite to everybody in the service business and tip generously.” The artist concluded her post with: “Recognize the internal effort you’ve completed. Recognize the work that remains to be done. Finally, grownups were correct when they warned us as children, “Time moves faster as you get older, so don’t take one second of being alive for granted.” Frances Bean Cobain has spoken about her poor connection with Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love in several interviews over the years. In 2019, the artist even admitted on RuPaul’s Drag Race that she felt bad about inheriting the Nirvana frontman’s fortune because she barely knew him. Cobain also said during the same program that she had been’resentful’ of her mother for a long time. But, as she told Rolling Stone in 2015, things between them shifted after the release of Brett Morgen’s documentary about the late singer: “We were sort of spooning on this big couch [while watching ‘Montage of Heck’].” And we were both in tears. My mother hugged me and wailed on me, saying, ‘I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry.'” Frances Bean Cobain’s birthday post can be found here.
