It’s been a slow transition but I wish I could tell my counsellor that I finally stepped down from that tightrope where I couldn’t put a foot wrong. I wish I could tell her that actually “Katie does make mistakes” but I can handle them – it’s okay.
Who do you trust to listen to you and your loss?
Everyone knows grief exists, but they would prefer it to exist at the edge of society, between the people who experience it.
What excites you the most?
My advice would be to rest often and to try to enjoy myself a bit more.
I think as a young person who has lost their mum, I am quite tired of being scared of everything.
Sometimes I am deeply grateful that Mum has been protected from the fear and uncertainty we are facing. But other times, I am terrified and all I want is a cuddle from my mum, telling me it will all be okay.
We would love to know what your true and honest opinions on society and acceptance of loss.
the mention of spirits, the dead and the imagery that comes with it, can be quite difficult to see. What are your thoughts?
