Grief, we all felt it at some point in our lives. It’s that intense emotion that follows after a loved one dies. It’s a monstrous feeling that sucks the life out of you little by little every single day. In addition to that, grief can also trigger all of the negative emotions you haven’t felt for so long, making everything even harder than it already is. The pain is brutal, and the longer you stay bounded by its effects, the more you’ll spiral out of control. We all have an idea and a first-hand experience with grief, but do we really know what it is?
Euthanasia is the act of ending a person’s life to give relief to their suffering and grief, and it has been around since time immemorial. It started during the dark ages when there were numerous diseases that were incurable, and mercy killing was the only option left. Presently, most laws and countries prohibit this action due to its barbaric nature. However, it is still allowed in a few areas due to certain circumstances such as peculiar laws and cultures. Its execution involves the assistance of a medical professional and the consent of the patient in most cases. However, the decision falls to relatives, doctors, or the court if the person is too ill to choose.
Have you ever felt the guilt of not expressing your feelings to the one you valued the most? Did you just let it go and tried to forget about it but eventually regret not saying anything? How does it feel to know that you missed the chance of telling that person how much he meant to you? Well, it was devastating. I was always confident about things in life, and the more I get to experience unexpected stress, I tend to pay attention to the situation. However, I felt the need for evaluation when I suddenly heard the awful news.
Not all relationships end in a happy ending, and eventually, we will experience loss in some ways. The period between the romantic bond and that loss is the grieving stage, and that is unavoidable. The extreme sadness and deep sorrow can make us feel weak and vulnerable to several emotional stresses that we sometimes can’t handle.
