There are weeks when there are “themes” or topics that come up as I see clients. One theme this week has been eulogies in one way or another. It got me to thinking (as I often have before) about how sad it is when our loved ones are gone that they don’t get to hear the wonderful things that we or others say about them.
Why wait to tell parents, friends, siblings or other family members how we truly feel, or things we regret saying/doing until it’s too late? I challenge all of us to say the things we want/need to say now before the opportunity is taken away from us. It’s not just so the other person can hear it, it’s also for our own benefit. To know there are no unspoken words between us and another can be good for our heart as well.
