Her death starts me on an emotional journey, where facing my future means reconciling my past. Along the way I discover my voice, my inner strength, and a life free from guilt and pain. I love my mother, I hate my mother, but sometimes I am my mother. Fix You is about finding acceptance in the one place you never thought to look-yourself. From Fix You: I am fixated on her pale face, as she sleeps on the bed across from me, wondering how my mother and I got to this place. It all feels like a distant blur to me as I flashback to what seemed at the time to be irreconcilable differences. It was an important year for me, the year I graduated from college and got a job, so I could finally escape her insanity for good. But, here I sit, at the foot of her bed watching her die. A tear slips down my face. Ive become witness to our tragic act- the last words she wrote to me still pierce my heart: Youll be sorry when Im gone. Sometimes it is the sharp contrasts in life, the bitter and the sweet- things not working out as planned, relationships falling apart, losing your loved ones-these are the things that shake you and make you appreciate life, see the good in it and love anew the people around you.
