“Life is a series of adjustments.”

In the aftermath of the recent California wildfires that destroyed her house in Malibu, pop star Miley Cyrus was reminded of the said adage, which her father used to always tell her growing up.


“Sometimes, we don’t understand what our parents are telling us until we start to experience life more,” the singer said in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest. “I’m starting to understand what that means, now that I’m experiencing something as life-changing and devastating as a natural disaster.”

Despite the devastation and trauma of losing her home, which she shares with her fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, Miley assures her fans that she’s in “a good healing place right now.”


For Miley, dealing with such tragedy and how she reacts to this profound loss are “deep character challenges.”

“I had a choice of posttraumatic stress or posttraumatic growth, and I think you always feel you don’t have control, especially when something happens that’s a natural disaster because there’s no beating nature,” she said. —ALLAN POLICARPIO
