6 Lessons from the Dying

1. We all have one question at the end of life

When death knocks at the door, most people wonder whether they will be remembered. At some point, you will ask if your life matters. However, leaving a legacy is not all about establishing a huge tech company or attaining celebrity status. Making a difference and being authentic means a lot. The moral of this lesson is that we ought to consider how we make people feel. Work towards leaving a lasting impression on everybody you encounter.

2. Never forget how blessed you are

When patients are confined in hospital beds, and they cannot see the sunshine for days, they value the small blessing the more. Many of us lament over the things that happen to us, regardless of how minor they are. Rarely do we stop to think about the little blessings that life hands over to us. Don’t wait until you are about to breathe your last for you to have a grateful heart.

3. Live your dreams

Many dying patients regret their unfulfilled dreams. They are sad because they didn’t lead a rewarding life because they wanted to please others. The society is a passing cloud, and you shouldn’t allow it to consume you. If you are scared of pursuing your passions, falling in love with people you care for, or doing what you want because you fear judgment, it’s time to put your guard down and live fully. Give yourself the chance to experience life intensely video porno.  

4. Take care of your body

People are often sad when they realise they will lose the uncontrolled and pain-free use of their bodies. That is why they wish that they appreciated their bodies well and ensured they were healthy. Most people that are about to die hate it when others pity them. They are okay with engagement, help, and compassion but don’t pity them.

5. Family and friends are everything

At the end of life, your family and friends will mean everything to you. Unfortunately, many dying people wish they had been more available, kinder, more loving, and more patient to the people they care for. Hug often, and don’t shy away from sharing your feelings with your loved ones. That is where unconditional love lies.

6. Don’t judge another person’s struggle

When your life is about to come to a close, you have plenty of time to think about your past. Some patients feel that their pain is a result of a wrong they did, such as mocking another person that was struggling. You have no idea where life may lead you. Bless and help others without imitating them. 

How to Find the Answer to “What Do I Want to Do With My Life?”

Most of us have no idea what to do with their lives. Even after completing college and getting a job, we find ourselves struggling with finding your life’s purpose. Unfortunately, this isn’t something to simply look up online and know. The good news is that you aren’t alone. Most adults wonder what they should be doing with their lives at some point.

Most of us have no idea what to do with their lives. Even after completing college and getting a job, we find ourselves struggling with finding your life’s purpose. Unfortunately, this isn’t something to simply look up online and know. The good news is that you aren’t alone. Most adults wonder what they should be doing with their lives at some point.

1. Talk to people

Meet or contact at least fifty people. They could be your friends, relatives, mutual friends, or references. Interact with them and find out how they are fairing. Don’t ask for favors like getting you a job or giving you money. Instead, listen to their opinions and have a regular conversation XXX. You will be surprised at how much you can learn from listening to other people talk. Sometimes you will hear winning about how terrible the traffic was, but if you listen between the lines, you will understand their motivations, hopes, and dreams. Piece it together, and you will figure out if that’s the path you desire.

2. What would make your 10-year old self cry?

When we are younger, we have dreams and ambitions. We know what we want to do and aren’t fearless about going for it. As we approach adulthood, our goals are suddenly shaped by society’s expectations. Unfortunately, we cave into the pressure and end up leading an unsatisfactory life. Search your inner-self and find out what you want to do, and then do it. Which talents did you practice in your younger days that you no longer do? That could be your purpose.

2. Prepare for a long journey

Accept that it will take a while and involve countless interactions before you figure it out. Your life’s purpose is likely a moving target that you must chase continually. Many people assume that figuring out what they want to do with their lives is a sudden, magical moment that explains in detail what their life should be. On this journey, you have to stop after a while, reconsider, and regroup.

3. Get started

Irrespective of where you want to be, it doesn’t hurt to start building something. If you’re going to be a graphic designer, learn how to do it, and create a portfolio. If you want to be a writer, what are you waiting for? Remember those good things take time, and your purpose will not fall on your laps. You’ve got to get up and take steps to get you there.

4. Enjoy not knowing

Don’t be anxious while you wait to find the answers. Take pride in the meanderings, the time wasted, the love lost, and the soul-searching. All these things will add up to a unique you. The more you appreciate what you have at the moment, the more the chances of having a fantastic future. Try focusing on the less-pressing issues, and eventually, the answers will come to you. When that happens, everything will be clearer than you expected it to be.

Bisexual, a conflictive word

No one, bisexuals included, loves the word. It sounds divisive when it means inclusive. It has a laboratory ring to it. What it means to me and to the many bisexual people I know is simply the ability to find emotional and sexual satisfaction in people of both genders. This broadly based sexuality, one enjoying but not bound by gender, explains much.

I am concerned with the sudden visibility of the conversion movement because I think homophobia should interest everyone. But I’m especially concerned that the response of the gay community not be one of increasing rigidity inside itself. Misunderstanding isn’t the special province of the conservatives and the converters.

Many gay activists see any talk of bisexuality as diluting the coherence of the community, particularly damaging in a time of attack. James Collard, editor of OUT, recently tried to start a discussion of what he calls “post-gay” sensibility — a community identity not based entirely in sexual orientation — and was met with anger. We have met the enemy, and it could be us if we’re not careful.

Others simply don’t believe in bisexuality, seeing through the lens of their own difficult coming-out experience. To those who’ve claimed their own sexuality the hard way, bisexuality sometimes looks like internalized homophobia, confusion, shame — or sexual opportunism. Bisexuals hear the same things from straights and gays, friends, lovers and perfect strangers: You can’t be both. You can’t be neither. You just haven’t faced the truth. You’re secretly wishing for A or B. Insert gay, insert straight, and it comes out the same — something essential is denied.

It is normal to me to have a flowing and unpredictable sexual orientation, although in my case it hasn’t been entirely unpredictable — there are patterns of who and when and how I am attracted to people, of who populates my dreams, and there are patterns in what I’ve chosen to do and not to do about those patterns. But my experience of attraction is nothing like a fence between opposing camps. My sexual self feels more like a winding river, going only vaguely in one direction, with gentle curves here and there, fast water and slow, occasional storms.

I have often wished to be another way, to “convert” fully and completely into a person whose community would be obvious — and welcoming. But there is something wonderful in this, too. The only limit is how tiny the word “bi” sounds, as though I lived in a world of two and not billions. What I live in is a world where sexual attraction can surprise me in the middle of doing the laundry, where I have discovered myself drawn to a person who didn’t meet a single one of the multiple criteria by which I had previously judged partners, where sexual attraction can disappear without notice and reappear where it is least expected, where in the course of the many decades of my life I have come to expect a library of possibility. I don’t know where the converters would even begin.
