When was the last time you grieved?
Taking time to remember, because it was longer than you expected. I empathise with you on this knowing the fact that it is not easy.
You tend to hold on strong so much and for so long that you forget that it still lives within your core.
The fear of death percolates beneath the surface and often haunts you. And denial is how you cope with it.
Death is a visitor in the course of lives. Some of it is visible in physicality, such as death of a dear one, pregnancy loss or a animal. While, the other stays invisible but hurts equally, such as loss of a relationship or friendship.
Let me make you look at the other side, the good reasons you should confront death.
It is helpful for you to explore into the course and meaning of one’s own life, given the fact that the life and death are interdependent. Then why to possibly ignore it?
It helps you to learn to live well and learn to die well equally.
Gives you a scope to know your own emotions and thoughts about death.
Makes you look at everyday from a different lens. This reminds me of Steve Jobs quote – “If you live each day as if it were your last, someday you’ll be right. Every morning I looked in the mirror and asked myself: If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I do today? ”
And lastly, gives you a chance to rivet your attention upon ‘being’ itself. It is a powerful experience.
Once you delve into those realms of existence; you have a good chance to come back to the stream of life and live it.
Here is one of my favourite read – Tolstoy’s story “The Death of Ivan Ilyich.”
