My experience confirms that death is part of living. This helps me deal with my inevitable death in an accepting way. Being able to support someone as they passed proved invaluable for my emotional well-being. (Single, 55-64, Male)
I see death as a natural event and part of living, we all die at some stage, so enjoy every day whatever happens. There was a hole that was occupied and now is not in this physical world, I felt a little sad but not for long, so this did not impact me for long. A counsellor once made some impactful statements which allowed me to accept what happened. Most people require some time to accept death as it is a subject not spoken about much in our society.

It hasn’t affected me as dying is part of life and we can’t escape it, so my thinking is accept it for what it is and get on with the living bit. (Single, 75+, Female)
It was all emotional, but because we had a long time to think about it, it did not have a huge impact.
