Coping with life after the death of a loved one maybe difficult at the start but if our loved one has to suffer everyday in order to live, I’d rather pray for a peaceful death instead of a divine intervention for my loved one to live. Today I saw a patient who has a heart disease and needs surgery but instead of being worried, he was too proud to tell me that he’s ready to die anytime if it’s bound to happen to him. But when I asked him about his family’s desires of letting go of him in case death will happen, he lowered down his voice and with seriousness asked me if his treatment can wait since he has to secure the needed amount for his operation. Our readiness to die will weaken each time we consider our loved ones who will be left behind. When death is inevitable, it’s the small kids or grandchildren who will hold us from leaving and not the material things.
