""Walk Through the Fire" is an anthem for the hero's journey and also a nod to non-codependency. There have been a lot of times in my life where I could see someone was suffering and I tried to help, but my vision of what help looked like wasn't what they needed or were ready for. Ultimately, the same is true for me; any real, deep-rooted transformation that I've ever undergone has been something that I had to decide and work through myself,” explains Doe Paoro.
She continues, “I love the image of fire because it's where the alchemy happens: we get to burn it all down and start again, and we emerge from the ashes something new. For me, the redemption of pain is that it generally matures into wisdom, and that is what we have waiting on the other side.”
