I am emotionally drained after attending a funeral service. I was caught up in waves of grief even though I barely know the deceased. I need to find something to cheer myself up. This sadness is not good to my health. This is why I was contemplating whether to go to the funeral or not. It is hard for me to face death, be it mine or others’. I would probably collapse if someone close to me dies.
When my father-in-law passed away, I was surprised at the calmness that his family showed. Today, I saw the same calmness in the face of the family of the deceased. How did they manage to stay so calm? I would break down and crumble to pieces.
How do priests and doctors control their emotion when facing so many deaths? How do they release their tension?
I have to go to pick up my kids now. They are my source of joy. I am glad to have two lovely kids that brighten up my days.
