In this episode, Miki speaks to her experience as a 13-year-old who struggled to “feel” normal after her mother’s death and why she had to finally embrace her grief, about ten years later.
Author, a musician, and talk show host, Miki Speer, was 13 years old when her mother passed away from cancer. For the better part of a decade, she ran away from her grief as she tried to convince herself she didn’t need to “go there.” Eventually, the good student found herself barely passing her college classes, struggling to enjoy being on the volleyball team, and uncontrollably crying at the drop of a hat – something needed to change.
Through counseling, she realized that her mother’s death finally needed to be processed, and she decided to “go there.”
Miki now combines her passions into creating free grief resources she wished she had right after her mom passed. You can find her free grief workbook, “My Heart Still Remembers,” on her website and her hit song, “See Me.” You can catch Miki weekly on her Facebook Live show, “The Healing Half: 30 Minutes of Growth,” every Tuesday night that features musicians and speakers that offer insight and hope.
