Here’s a very small post, with a very important question!
The mere thought of this made me cry for over an hour a few nights back. Asking you this question, my intention is not to make you go through the same pain or confusion but to help you understand your own mind and heart.
SITUATION 1 : You leave this world before your parent(s).
The + point – You never need to feel the loss of them going
The – point – You leave them with the pain of losing the child they gave birth to, and saw grow up.
SITUATION 2: They leave this world before you.
The + point – They are saved from the above mentioned pain.
The – point – You get to live through that tragedy and the life afterwards with the gap of their absence.
Which would you rather have? Bear the pain yourself and or give it to them?; or putting it differently, face death yourself first or let them face it first?
Please think and answer!
