The Urgent Care EP is an emotionally charged and unfiltered journey that invites listeners to connect with CHAiLD’s personal story of healing and self-discovery. Through his music, he reminds us that it’s okay to embrace our vulnerabilities and reach out for support.
“Urgent care” is my way of opening up to myself and to others. Throughout my life, I thought vulnerability was a flaw and that showing weakness resulted in an open invitation for people to hurt me. However now, I know I am allowed to tell people I’m not ok. It is ok to break down and to accept the fact that the world feels just a bit too much to handle from time to time. So, from now on, I will try to heal from the hurt I’ve been carrying within me. And most importantly, instead of dealing with it alone, I will ask for help. Yes, I am in urgent need for care.”
