From films to reality...
Sometimes films and television or radio drama can allow emotions
safely to flow which any of us might have been unable
to allow to surface in real life situations. Looking at
some of your reactions and feelings as you just have is a
good springboard from which to look at real life.
Please now give some thought to
- The first death you can remember, whose it was and how old
- The first funeral you ever went to. Whose was
it? What do you remember about it?
- The most recent experience of bereavement you have
had. How long ago was it? What are your feelings about it now?
- Have you been surprised by your reaction (or lack of
reaction) to any bereavement?
You might like to make a few jottings: to ‘reflect on
paper’ or to note down anything that comes to you. You can use the Notebook tool
or pencil and the back of an envelope, whatever is easiest. The Notebook
holds all such notes for you and will pop them up whenever you visit the associated page.
