Death is part of life...
In our society we often disassociate death treating it with a separateness from being alive, when in fact death is part of life. We are all going to die. That’s a statistic we can’t change. Yet so few people don’t want to talk about dying or death; and few plan for it.
We plan for births, weddings, holidays, what car we want to buy, what suburb we want to live in; what house we will live in… yet few of us plan, prepare or talk about what we value most and what our wishes are if we are dying or after we are dead.
Although it is often personally confronting when faced with our own mortality; and it can be challenging to have conversations about death and dying with those you love, these are very important conversations to have.
When you do have these conversations and put your affairs in order, there is often a great “sense of relief” and satisfaction that you have been able to share this important information; and a recognition that by doing this you hopefully will reduce some of the burden of decision-making for those you love in the event that decisions have to be made on your behalf due to illness, accident or death.
