For me the unknown after death is kind of scary but I believe there is more after death. Dying has kept coming up in different ways in the last week. A friend being put on palliative care, another friend having a celebration of life for a family member I knew and even in my homework for my certification. Death is an end to this life and a birth to something new for me, so what is it about death that scares me and how can I feel at peace with it.
Aha….I realize there is a common thread, it is saying “good bye”. Weather its “good bye” to a life style, food, friend or partner (in death or relationship ending) or mine or another’s death. Grieving comes with good bye for me and I realize I need to be kind and patient during this process. There have been and will be times in my life I will need to say “good bye” and it is okay. Sometimes it is better to let go of people, foods, partners that aren’t a great fit in that time and maybe we will meet again and create a different relationship and maybe not.
If I need to say good bye I will grieve and miss them and remember the fun times we had. It would be great to find peace with good bye & death. I am not there yet but I feel better as I continue to tap and ponder this.
Have you struggled or feared death or good byes and what has helped you with this?
