Dying is Easy

Dying is easy.

Here’s what you do — lay your principles in the sand, or better yet, don’t have any. Smack away the hand of that friend reaching out to you. Follow the faceless crowd. Believe the hype. Love fads.

When you feel that ache in your core, fill it with liquor, food, or carnal knowledge. Let these things overtake you.

Put the blinders on.

Place your faith in tangible things, possessions that can be stolen, broken, or disassembled.

And last but not least, stop caring if you believe it doesn’t matter, convinced the days will go on.
If you do these things, you will die faster than you could ever imagine.

  1. Wow, I love this. Great thoughts about all the things I try to avoid in life.
    “Smack away the hand of that friend reaching out to you. Follow the faceless crowd. Believe the hype. Love fads.” Great advice to be lonely or unfulfilled.
    How often in life have I done these things? I have made an effort to become more mindful in life, in all that I do. I do have contact with many people who I think are making a full time living out of being miserable.
    Thanks for the thoughts, I am grateful for them Susan. Keep them coming. I know nobody could possibly keep the blinders on after reading this.

      Dang, Jonathan ! The timing of your response is like a warm hug. I’ve had a rough couple of day – can’t stop beating myself up for a mistake I made at work. No harm came to the patient, but still, I’m bothered that I missed an important order from the doctor.
      Whew! Thanks for listening to me vent. I feel a little better sharing this with someone.

      • Don’t beat yourself up too bad. Everyone makes mistakes in life. I can imagine that your work life is extremely hectic and full of pressure. Think of the 9 million things you have done right and the thousands of people that you have helped feel better when they were not at their best. You are clearly a caring, talented individual with a lot nursing talent. I could never do your job. Hope that today is better!! Sending you some positive thoughts. Feel free to vent to me any time at all. 🙂
