Still struggling with how to grieve for her mother Carrie Fisher, Billie Lourd

Still struggling with how to grieve for her mother Carrie Fisher, Billie Lourd

On what would have been her mother's 66th birthday on Friday (21.10.22), the 30-year-old actress, who is the daughter of the late "Star Wars" great Carrie Fisher, who passed away at age 60 from a tragic heart attack in 2016, posted on social media to say how her grief is "forever evolving."

On Instagram, she posted a picture of herself with her mother when she was younger and captioned it: "Today, my mum would have turned 66. I felt like I should write a lengthy, wise caption on grief this morning, as if I actually knew what I was talking about. But I soon came to the realisation that, even after six years, I still lack any method or guide for handling such days. Being an expert in grieving is impossible. It constantly changes, making it the supreme shapeshifter." (sic)
The "Scream Queens" star, who also lost her grandmother Debbie Reynolds the day after her mother passed away, continued to tell her 1.5 million followers that they are "not alone" in whatever way they are feeling after losing a loved one.

Added her: "Anything you believe is OK. To all the griefers out there, I'm sending my love (yet another billie lourd petition to make this an actual term). You are not by yourself." (sic)

Lily Collins of "Emily in Paris" fame and journalist Katie Couric both left supportive words for Billie in the post's comments area. Lily Collins wrote: "Sending nothing but love and light your way you darling effervescent human," and Katie Couric added: "Sending you so much love."
