The Elephant In The Room
Why do we avoid talking about death?
Death has become the ultimate Elephant In The Room.
What happens to us when we avoid talking about death, dying and grief?
Do we become more fearful of it?
Do we push our feelings down?
Do we have a backstory of what End of Life looks like, or should look like?
How do we treat people that are experiencing grief due to the death of a loved one?
Do we start to avoid that person, after a period of time, because society has told us its time to "move on"?
The quick read (attached), by Terry Kettering, puts in simple words just how much we "avoid" the elephant in the room.
Let's change our avoidance and start working through our emotions around death, dying and grief.
