Death sucks

Rate this item
(0 votes)

So this week my mother sends me a email saying my dads long time friend has passed away at the age of 87, I know my dad was very good friends with him and small group of friends who formed a group called the Harmony Lake Group, a bunch of artists who had been friends since art school, whos friendship has spaned 30+ years, painting togeter and enjoying eachothers company.

I know this will effect my dad, last time someone died near him he started saying things like "I won't be around long" and "if you want anything you better ask for it now" he was like that for weeks, His anxiaty is my anxiaty, I love my family a lot, they mean the world to me, I was lucky to have a great upbringing and a loving family, I am the youngest of three brothers, my two older brothers are marryed and have children, and my folks are retired.

I feel left out sometimes being single for the last three years, I want to have a family but finding the right girl has not happened yet, I am torn between wanting to have my folks at my wedding and maybe even have them baby sit and forcing myself to find the wrong person to spend my life with just to reach that goal.

I hope my dad is ok

    Hope you don't mind me replying in your journal entry. Not really sure how this all works yet or if people are okay with replies in their personal thoughts.

    Why suffer with being married to the wrong woman for say 30 years, just to try to appease your parents for 5 or 10 years? Think rationally and do not let your fears and worries get the best of your life choices. The right woman will come around when it is meant for you – do not rush into anything just to say you have a wife and a kid. Marry for love and devotion; never marry to fulfill someone else’s wishes or wishes you may think they have.
    It is great that you even still have your parents, by the way. Mine were both gone by the time I was 26. Cherish every moment with them and I am sure they love and support you with or without a significant other considering you mentioned you have a loving family and had a great upbringing.

    ….and yes, death does suck.
