Life can have some dark moments, and losing someone we love is one of those.
What is it about death that we can’t get used to it?
I mean, is the only thing we are certain of facing – I´ve heard of a few people who’ve been able to avoid taxes so don’t give me that old naive adage.
I think we should seek a Buddhist approach to death and not just accept it but actually, embrace it.
Yes, losing someone you love hurts. A parent, a husband, a pet, a friend, a kid… But I think that’s a good thing. It means you loved. You loved with all your heart and soul.
That person was so important to you; she meant so much in your life that you literary feel your chest braking, aching so hard, you can’t help but cry your eyes out.
I have a friend that says: “She who loves a lot, suffers a lot,” and with death, you grasp the real meaning of that truth.
If you didn’t care, you wouldn’t shed a tear.
