British Actress, Joely Richardson, recently admitted that it has taken a full four years to accept her sister Natasha’s death. Her life long friend and girl that she had lived her whole life knowing is now gone and it has taken a toll on Joely. she has lost a partner and friends due to her overwhelming grief.
Over four years ago, Joely Richardson's sister had went out for a skiing trip and didn't come back. She suffered extreme injuries from the skiing accident and died shortly after, leaving her family in turmoil. Especially Joely, who has despite the situation, lost many friends and has been broken up with by the men she had pursued a relationship with. These were the times that she need everyone most but she had no one to turn to. She is only now recovering from the traumatic experience and trying to lead a normal life.
Ms.Richardson explained her forty-five year old sister's death as a "giant explosion" ,in her own words. She never expected to lose her sister and it just happened so suddenly. She wasn't prepared to deal with an event so tragic, leaving her estranged and withdrawn. Speaking about her sister, Joely said “Tasha leaving us was just so heartbreaking and it was heartbreaking over a long period of time. I suddenly realised that enough time had gone by for me to accept that this was the new way of life and that I needed to start embracing joy.”
Today, Joely Richardson has taken a pact of her own to live happily and try to reminisce in the good memories of her sister rather than the ones that have brought her so much pain. She is now living a normal life again and plans to reconcile her past friendships, as well as to make new ones. The newly found accepting attitude towards the event will probably give her a more positive outlook at getting back into the acting business again as well.
