Let’s Heal Together

“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”
Anne Lamott

“The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same nor would you want to.”
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

I hold on to hope. Even when you feel hopeless, there is always hope. I’ve seen too many successes not to believe.

About Miranda

Miranda is a 27 year old Substance Abuse Counselor who lost her Uncle to heroin on December 13th, 2015. Miranda will write about the struggles through her grief, her triumphs through her clients, and just how she deals and has begun to look at grief as a journey not a destination. Miranda will take you through the other side of addiction and may occasionally allow you into her rambling mind. This blog is the counselor’s therapy…

This blog is to show 1. If you have a loved one who is battling addiction you are not alone and 2. If you are struggling with addiction this is the other side.
