I personally feel that dying is something that will always remain a paradox no matter how we look at it. I mean... we cease to exist in death and in that moment, none of our past thoughts, concerns, worries, pain, or illnesses, would even matter anymore. Ironically though, while we might be the one who has died on the outside, it would always still be the living and our loved ones that would end up dying on the inside. In that sense, everyone who has experienced loss and grieved over a loved one before - has technically already experienced death as well. Perhaps this might provide at least some sort of comfort to others, in knowing that most of us would already be well prepared when our time comes.
