3 Lessons Dead people taught me
In this week's newsletter: Reading Obituaries, Builder of the week, Asking quality questions & many more...
How are you doing this week? Mentally?
4 Things I thought worth sharing with y’all
1. A couple of days ago I posted an IG story saying the Grandpa in my neighbour’s house has C-19. Yesterday I got to know that he’s no more. I tried remembering the last conversation we both had.
Me: Grandpa it’s 12 in the night, go to sleep (Showing my hand towards the door)
Grandpa: I don’t live there anymore.
Me: *Wondering* why is he saying that? I got to know that after his wife’s death, his sons haven’t been treating him with respect and had lots of internal issues.
Some nights he used to come out at 2-3 in the night and smoke a cigarette
Yesterday when I tried putting myself in the son’s shoes, I realized that COVID took him and we were unable to get the body back, unable to hug him one last time, unable to tell him to stop smoking, unable to see the person who took care of me all my life, unable to burn/bury him.
2. Lessons Dead people taught me
If you’ve been near-death or had a near-death experience,
”Everyday now is an Extra Day”
Regrets. (From above story)
Go kiss your mom, Hug your father, Tell your sibling you love them, Text your Internet friends, Call your partners, & Document everything. You never know how close death is.
Questions like: Will I wake up tomorrow morning? Will tonight be my last sleep? can be a great way to motivate yourself to do things you won’t regret in the future.
In the blog, The Tail End Tim urban says that by the time we graduate we had already used up 93% of our in-person parent time.
We are in the tail end fam. *Virtual hugs*
