Tara Livesay on healing

hurting and healing and being loved and loving – is a messy thing. when it comes to healing, we’d like for it to be linear and we’d like for it to always go from bad to good – in a straight line. healing does not look much like that. it resembles zig-zags and dot-to-dot puzzles much more than it resembles a straight line. and so we ride the waves of crushing grief and brilliant hope up and down and up and down.
