"It’s one of the hardest things to accept, our own mortality. But making a bit of time to have important conversations, while there’s still time, can make a big difference when the time comes".
Talking about death seems so counterintuitive to our culture. However, when we find a safe place to engage in these conversations, we open ourselves to learning so much about others, and ourselves.
This article shares 4 benefits that are received when we start talking about the end of our lives.
1. In planning terms, once you know, you know.
2. It lightens the practical and legal burden.
3. Relief, calm and a sense of control.
4. You'll give people the joy of discovering things that they never knew about you.
These conversations can begin at any time. Do not wait until one is sick or too ill to learn about what is important to them.
