Life lessons : Elizabeth Kubler Ross
‘Five stage of Grief‘ is very famous for every person. Because we don’t avoid death, ‘Life lessons‘ was a big hit in the world. I read this book very impressively. 5 stage is denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. I want to tell my story about Death Life lessons. I went to hospital to meet a lung cancer patient. She is a grandmother of her 3 sons. It has a big meaning to her. Her cancer is a stage 4 Adenocarcinoma. It means that she only has six months left. It is a very short time. Why do I meet her? I am a medical student. So I walk the hospitals for a brief time. I met her for a short moment, but she stayed in my mind for a long time.
“Learning lessons is a little like reaching maturity. You’re not suddenly more happy, wealthy, or powerful, but you understand the world around you better, and you’re at peace with yourself. Learning life’s lessons is not about making your life perfect, but about seeing life as it was meant to be.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Death Life lessons : Teach us
She is maybe a stage of acceptance. It depends on each time, she looks relaxed. She said “My husband died in February this year. Now I’m going to die, too. If I live longer, It is more better to be able to see grand-children. But I don’t regret. My sons live very well.” I can’t say any words. I feel like meeting dead ends. I don’t know what to say and what to make an expression like. Her depth of words is the depth of her life. It is very difficult. I feel the need to be deeper than ever. I thought I should see and feel essential, fundamental things. The current medical education is not to deepen us. I seems to learn techniques. I want to change these things.
“There is no need to go to India or anywhere else to find peace. You will find that deep place of silence right in your room, your garden or even your bathtub.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
