Rob and I did some filming for Rosie TV part 3 today. I’m a bit tired so I wasn’t really up to my full potential but don’t worry it was still good.
Temp check – 36.3 – no emergency.
I have to go to work soon but I’m taking sanitiser with me in case anyone sneezes on their money and touches me or something, you know how it is.
Why is death treated as such a bad thing? I get that people don’t deal well with loss and all, but death isn’t unique. Also, cancer doesn’t equal death so why keep it quiet? Why don’t people talk about death more? It’s an interesting subject because on one side of things it’s okay to die if you’ve done your life and you’ve been happy and you’ve made the most of it and then on the other side if you’ve not had a good life (say you were kidnapped) then it’s also good to die because you wouldn’t have to suffer? If you’re dead you don’t know what you’re missing out on because you don’t know you’re missing because you’re dead. I know there will be people saying ‘but they shouldn’t have to die’ but that’s not to do with death that’s to do with the bad thing..not death. I don’t want answers to any of these, I’m just wanting you to rethink. I know there is all the grieving but grieving is for you and not the dead person..you should be happy that the dead person was happy (if they were happy), if you know someone who’s not happy then tell them to make themselves happy – there is always a way out. If you get a terminal illness then you shouldn’t focus on the death you should focus on the life and then by the time the death comes it’s okay because you’ve had the life. I know that I am one person saying one thing and it would be naive of me to think that there wouldn’t be other opinions but this is how I see it. I’m talking about you and your death not how you feel about other peoples deaths.
Another thing, why do people automatically change their feeling when someone mentions cancer? Like, Rob was telling me today that he said to someone about how he had been filming a girl with cancer and the person he was talking to was like ‘oh dear :(‘ – why negative? Why? Why is the default to be pitying and sad? Change it. Sort it out.
