Most of us have some anxiety about dying
That makes sense since it is mostly unknown to us—what happens, where if anywhere we go, whether some aspect of ourselves will remain
But it occurs to me that none of this anxiety is necessary
We do everything else well (even hard things)—we are born, we fall asleep, we wake each day and then someday we die
Being born is hard for all involved. Falling asleep sometimes seems impossible. Waking up is relatively hard. But all of these hard things we do exceptionally well
And for that reason alone, it is reasonable to believe that we die well, too
The human body does all these things and so many others so well. So why not think that we die well?
(I think we do)
