“In the last 30 years my ideas around loss have been in a continuous state of metamorphosing,” Cobain wrote. “The biggest lesson learned through grieving for almost as long as I’ve been conscious, is that it serves a purpose. The duality of life & death, pain & joy, yin & yang, need to exist along side each other or none of this would have any meaning.”

Cobain lamented the fact that she never got to know her father, who committed su*cide in 1994 when she was an infant. She went on to reconnect with the opening of her post and note the cyclical process of life and death, and how it makes living all the more precious.

“Whether it’s by hearing a song or through the hands we share, in those moments I get to spend a little time with my dad & he feels transcendent,” Cobain continued.
