Dying Peacefully Without Regrets
While thinking about death is often avoided during life, advancing illness forces you to acknowledge the fragility of your life. Facing death with courage gives you the opportunity to prepare for this natural part of life and gives you the confidence to die peacefully.
We have provided the following information to guide, not only people with life-limiting illness, but those wishing to prepare for and accept the reality of death:
- Rejoicing in your life – broaden your focus to your life’s journey of which your illness journey is only a small part.
- Forgiving yourself and others – information to help you understand the nature of forgiveness and how to let go and move on.
- Making your wishes known – clarify your wishes so that you and your family can communicate openly about the things that are most important as you approach your death.
- Being at peace with your death – readiness for death can be achieved by developing an awareness of your death, knowing how to use that to your advantage and achieving peace with your death.
