It is normal and natural to fear death. There are many reasons for this which include any personal experiences you may have had in the past of funerals, hospitalized deaths, religious education or because of society’s reluctance to openly discuss end of life.
The fact is, death will touch of your life, sooner or later.
Thinking about your death is a deep and very personal experience. Engaging in a discussion with someone who understands how vulnerable you may be feeling, or the complexities of family dynamics is a valuable and validating experience.
Learning about all the options that are in your control and reflecting on what is important to you can reduce some of the fear you may experience and ultimately help you engage more in life.
