This is a blog about happiness, so why on Earth have I put ‘death’ and ‘happiness’ next to each other? For me, death and happiness are inextricably intertwined – we spoke before about how fear of death is a defining force in our lives. My approach – the more you face and accept death, the happier you are. You can’t be oblivious to it and yet be truly happy long term.
Below is not a case for euthanasia, although it could as well be. It’s an exercise in facing reality and realising that the likelihood of a ‘good’ death is slim and so we should prepare ourselves for a more likely scenario. May seem grim to some, useful eye opening stats if you ask me.
