It’s strange how our worldview can lead us to being judgemental about elementary things such as death and how we cope with it.

Instead of reaching out and being grateful for having an insight to what is a very personal issue for most of us, people mis-seize the opportunity to lecture. It’s hypocritical. We can only feel what we do feel. It’s no use when someone keeps telling me I should think of the many people dying in developing countries. In hospices. In accidents.

My standard question: And then, what happens?

It’s post-middle age philosophy that we’re all equal and are to live up to a preposterous moralic standard dictated by reason. If I don’t know what it’s like, I cannot relate emotionally, and then I’m just displaying vain insincere political correctness.

It’s a choice.
