Life and Death.

''When (where?)  there is life, there is Hope''

Once upon a time I used to believe that. But then I grew up, and my cerebrum started to get busy, and i thought, does life REALLY mean hope??

Let's face it.

Life is not always the answer; sometimes, death is.

I see people really trying to save the lives of people who are far gone, and I shake my head. I wonder, do they really consider the feelings of the people in question? Do they know if those people really want to live like that, or not?

my opinion : No.

I don't know as I'm properly explaining the way I feel so that you guys would understand, but I really hope you do. Sometimes words just aren't enough.

I feel people mostly try to save lives because they don't want to have to deal with the grief of losing someone...whom they have already lost, by the way.

I mean, would you really say to a blind, deaf and dumb person, that 'where there is life, there is hope?'...anyway not like they can hear you or anything...HOW does a deaf, blind and dumb person survive?? really? They can't hear, you can't write on a paper and say'read it', they can't talk, HOW?

Or maybe someone who has become a vegetable. He can't think for himself, hell he can't even get up and pee by himself. what kind of life is that? would you really say to him 'where there is life, there is hope?'

Or yeah, a baby who has anencephaly , i mean really HOW would that baby survive? Don't you guys get me? NO FRONTAL LOBE!!

Did you hear of the Boy in the Bubble?? No immune system at all. If he inhaled dust, problem; if a mosquito bit him, problem, HOW would he survive? There's no freaking way, maybe in year two thousand and one million. Maybe.

There are a billion other examples.

That's why I support Euthanasia. That's why.

Because Life doesn't always mean Hope. Life isn't always the answer.

We should really stop looking at death as the enemy. Sometimes, he can be the friend, come to take our loved ones to a better place.

I am a Christian, and yes, i believe in Life after death. I believe in Jesus Christ, I believe in Heaven and Hell, I believe in the whole Christianity deal.

And I have lost a very dear person to me, so I know that it doesn't matter how young or old the person who dies is, as long as there's Love, you will hurt and grieve terribly.

But I am a Christian. And I know Hope they're going to a better place. That really has to be a great little consolation.

I know how it hurts to lose someone. But sometimes, Holding on, hurts a lot more.

That's my own two cents.

Or maybe he quote means something else that I don't understand. Maybe I'm taking it too literally.

What do you guys think? Is life always the answer? Does life always mean hope?

Hello,

I was wondering who was visiting from Ternopil Ternopilska Oblast? I've seen you (someone) visit my blog from that location(Where is that?). It's nice to meet you. And thanks for the comment. I added your comment to the text of the post.


"Do they know if those people really want to live like that, or not?"

Well, since we don't know, I don't think it's in our hands. I mean, I am reminded of Helen Keller.

Yes, with hope there is life. With no life there is no hope.

Btw, how did you find my little blog?

Without hope...how can one feel alive and i ask. There is no life without hope and there is no hope without life.

neefemi said...

Yes there are people that hurt and look in seemingly impossible situations, but like blogoratti said even they have to have hope, its what pushes u day in day out, hope for a better tomorrow. There is no life without hope my dear. sorry that u lost somebody and may his/her soul RIP. It just means it was their time. No reason not to keep on hoping even till the very end.

It's not just not wanting to deal with the grief that makes them want to save their lives at all cost; I would want to think that it is deeper than that.The thought of never seeing the person, and that isn't the same thing as grief, I think.
Still, I understand what you mean and totally, Someone close to me had cancer and as much as we wanted her to stay and kept fighting for her life, it got to a point when she begged for us to let her go.. So I get it..
Great post.

Rainyjoy said...

hey, i like this post because i can relate to it. each and every1 of us have lost a loved one regardless of their age and it hurts really bad but i'll share this word with you. Phil 1:21 - For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. i believe for us who are in Christ, being absent from the body is being present with the Lord. Even though we hurt at d lost of a dear one, we should have it at the back of our mind that they are in a better place. thanks 4 sharing. i've lost two loved ones this year and God's love has held me through the pain, i pray His love will reach out to you and comfort you the best way He knows how.

Hi there,

I totally understand your feelings about some of these seemingly hopeless case STILL, we don't often understand why things are the way they are. I find that we often go through phases when we question a lot of things and then we go through another where we seem satisfied that God is in control.

It's okay to question. Be at rest. We heal then we move on accepting what we cannot change and changing what we can. It is well.

My pastor once said that "death was a form of healing." And I believe it. Plus, more important than the life here is the life after this physical death, the eternal one.

Jaycee said...

I usually read comments after I've made my own, and so I just read through and found CareyCarey's comments to reflect some of my own thoughts. No life is ours to give or to take away, but we must have the courage to move on in the case of the death of a loved one.

Myne Whitman said...

I also support Euthanasia. Death is a part of life and so there is hope even after one dies. Especially if one is a Christian.

CerebrallyBusy said...

wow

@bloggoratti: wow. thanks!

@Neefemi: thank you very plenty, i totally get your point.

CerebrallyBusy said...

@2cute4u: actually i think the thought of not seeing the person again and grieving are basically the same thing...:/ thanks a lot for stopping by!

@RainyJoy: Thanks! and may the good Lord comfort you too. May the souls of your loved ones rest in peace.

@Maidofheart: Wow thank you so much!

@Jaycee: your comments make so much sense! Thanks a lot.

@Myne: You summed up my post in three simple, short sentences. wow. kudos!

@owner of blog
NO i don't support euthanasia, i believe all the word of God and not just the ones that suit me.

My bible reads that 'He who has the son has life', that life can be transferred by contact. This is what i believe, i don't give up or give in. Its weird abi, i am idealistic enough to believe the word of God and not the reality the world presents to me.

I will do whatever possible according to what the word of God says and not what medical science tells me.

Life is beautiful always. Hope makes not ashamed is as true that if you have the son, you have zoe life; a life that can't be defeated or disadvantaged.
