When people lose someone and they do not grieve that means that the did not love as much as they could have. According to Dora Carpenter, “The loss of a loved one can leave you broken and heartless”( np). “The loss of a loved one can also help people to find and awaken their inner selves” (Carpenter np). In the book How we Grieve Relearning the World Thomas Attig gives multiple first hand account of what people have
I watched my mother fade away slowly as she was battling pancreatic cancer. I looked after her everyday as best as I could; however, the feeling of my eventual solitude was unbearable.The thought of my mother’s imminent demise made me feel like my heart was being continuously stabbed. Watching my mother suffer was one of the hardest things I have ever had to go through. After her passing; something changed in me, darkness filled where love once was. I always knew deep down, that my mum was not going to make it; however, knowing this did not make it any easier.
Death of a loved one is always a cause for mourning. However, when a baby dies, there is a sadness that goes beyond normal grief. We are programmed to expect that the old outlive the young. When a person who has lived a full life passes away, there is a sense that everything is as it should be. When a baby passes, who has not even has the chance to experience life, his death seems meaningless.
He then slapped me and said, “ you're no one to tell me what I can and cannot do in my own home”. I had ran inside the home as, I felt humiliated because this incident happened to be witness by his family. After a short while, his aunt had come into the home and approach me, she had ask what why I was hit. She informed me that they did not want to get involved because it was between my husband and I. She had also informed me that the family were leaving in order for us to resolve our issues.
When death occurs everyone is heartbroken and they try to give their condolences to the affected family. In The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian Arnold states, “When it comes to death we know that laughter and tears are pretty much the same. We said goodbye to my grandmother… Each funeral was a funeral for all of us. We lived and died together”. (pg.166) Tears and laughter are strong emotions when something unexpected happens in our lives.
In our culture, it’s common for families to be depressed when their loved one passes away. They love them, and have a bond with that person, so funerals in our culture are always a very emotional and hard time for people. And I feel like it would be even worse to have a funeral for a child who passed, because they didn’t get to experience what the real world is like. They were still in their young and innocent days. Death hits us hard in our culture and deeply hurts the family members who have the deal with the passing of their loved one.
He hit me again, and I could no longer scream. My arms hung helplessly and without any problems, they hung me up by the legs. Blood rushes to the brain, it becomes harder to breathe, and my head was buzzing. I remembered that my wife and son waiting for me at home. I saw the old man sympathizers me and was waiting for the same
The author states, “ I talked more quickly, more vehemently but the noise steadily increased...with violent gesticulations; but the noise steadily increased...the noise steadily increased. O God! what COULD I do? I foamed -- I raved -- I swore! I swung the chair upon which I had been sitting, and grated it upon the boards, but the noise arose over all and continually increased.
Death is the inevitable and unavoidable conclusion in life but a word that never comes to my mind. Before 18, I have never encountered anyone’s funeral or losing anyone in my family. After attending the first ever funeral, I realized the fragility of life and the feeling of losing someone. However, as time pass, I also have a grasp of other kinds of understanding towards death. The word “death” by a typical dictionary meaning would be seen negative as the ending of one’s life, on the other hand, it can also see as positive as it could be a reliever and even a new beginning for one or their family.
Considering the near destruction of someone. Love can also take us from the tragic moments in our lives. Knowing someone is there for you and able to hold you and comfort you in a despair is a wonderful thought.On the other hand Love could even be the tragic moment in our lives. Multiple people are unaware that being in love can and will withhold you from many things family, self love ,hope, and alone time. Love is almost always behind anger.”.
