I’ve recently been asked by multiple people how I stay so positive while going through something so difficult and challenging. If I’m being completely honest, the answer is quite simple- accepting that death may come a little sooner than you had once anticipated.

I know death is a difficult subject. The majority of people have a hard time accepting the death of a loved one or dear friend, let alone their own death. It is too often seen as the worst possible outcome.

Perhaps if it was seen in a more positive light those who suffer/suffered from a physical illness could live a happier and more fulfilling life.

I’m not saying it’s an easy pill to swallow. It’s not like I woke up one morning and decided that I was okay with my life ending at such a young age. It took a few months, and much thought but I…

  1. Yes death is hard to accept when it is someone else and especially when it is a young child, teen or young adult. However I find that the older I get the less I fear death. I know it will happen one day so I try to enjoy as much in life as I can each and every day. I think this is a lesson each and every one of us learns as we age.

  2. Hello! As the Son of a 53 YEAR SURVIVOR… FIVE SETS “OF”… My MOTHER has BEEN GIBRALTAR’S ‘MODEL’! As SHE has had the SIXTH begin to UNRAVEL the “strippings” and, replacements , as a retiree of Ohio’s “Youth Commission” LIFE , and DEATH ARE the part of “FORWARD”.

  3. I empathize. Cancer has visited my family also. My grandson had it when he was three. He survived brain cancer with chemo and stem cell replacement. Then when he was fourteen his mother, our daughter-in-law passed away from colon cancer. That was a little over a year ago. Now last month my wife’s cousin died from cancer. You would figure that with all the research there would be a cure.

  4. Death to most is fearful because the unknown is often fearful. Logically, it is the end result of living entities. Emotionally, it is an experience that creates images differing from mind to mind. It is my opinion the joys of LIVING life and focusing on the time we have to maximize our experiences helps each of us resolve in our minds the unknown ending that awaits us all.

  5. You article of death leaves room for food for thought. Death can be spiritual and physical. The fear of death is a confronting thought that baffles human existence. Religions leave death as life to another plane. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Anand Bose from Kerala

  6. I feel I have never feared death. It kinda freaks other people out. Even when I got my cancer diagnosis I was like, uhm, okay. I mean, it’s not like any of us are NOT going to die….it’s GOING to happen…I hope I outlast my dog cuz I wouldn’t want him to end up in a home that didn’t love him as much as I do. But that’s not about fearing DEATH.

    Anyway, yeah, interesting topic.


  7. If we make death a taboo subject then it gains a mystery and fear that is out of proportion to the event. We are all going to live finite lives, that seems hard for some to accept, but it really is fact. When you find you are suffering from something that will foreshorten your life, in my case a rare form of cancer, then you need to be able to talk about death, to look practically at some of the challenges, to examine the taboos and perhaps to encourage others to consider death from the viewpoint of someone whose life is foreshortened. Most do not wish to be smothered in sympathy but prefer to be able to plan and live what we have left in a meaningful way. I have been fortunate in having that support at a family level, from a group who specifically support blood cancer sufferers and from those who treat me.
