“Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome” Isaac Asimov.
It all depends on how you choose to live your life; happy or miserable. I may not have achieved all the things I had hoped to in life but still, I choose to be happy. There is no cheat sheet for a happy life; all you need is to quit making excuses and put your power to use. It’s all about standing up and battling with all the obstacles in life.
Come to think of it, when one dies where do they go? I’m always scared of the idea of dying because I don’t know what it’s like to be dead. Will I reunite with my loved ones who will have already left before me? Is there life after death? Will I come back as a ghost to haunt those who wronged me and settle the score with them?
Do you ever think about what it means to you when someone dies? You not only lose the person, but your identity in relation to that person. So, if one loses a father, do they continue to be their father’s child or does the relationship become complicated? For the loved ones, it can be a big blow. However, everyone deals with death differently; some are strong enough to grief, others get into a state of emotional limbo. However, one is allowed to think, feel and say whatever it is that they need to heal.
Death is a painful reminder that life is short…way too short. For the dead, it’s a peaceful state; they enjoy the silence without having to think about yesterday or tomorrow, as in death there is no suffering.For the living, there is always that fear of the unknown ;“People fear death even more than pain. It’s strange that they fear death. Life hurts a lot more than death. At the point of death, the pain is over” Jim Morrison.
