Death is the only common denominator that all humans have with each other. It is a 100% guaranteed, with no escape clauses and no buyouts.
Yet, many of us have not openly participated in conversations about End-of-Life (EOL). For most, death conversations are normally avoided because they are still thought of as morbid or taboo.
However, when we avoid talking about death, we deny ourselves the opportunities to raise our own awareness, sharing fears and anxieties and honing in on what EOL wishes and desires bring us the most comfort.
Starting now, and not waiting until one is diagnosed or dying is near, allows us and our loved ones to take the time needed to discuss and honor decisions that best align with our values and morals.
