My Journey : Becoming Death Positive

My thoughts and fears surrounding death have very much evolved since being introduced to (and now living with) a death positive mindset. The phobia of death is still quite prominent in my life at times (I’m in no way perfectly “cured”), but my outlook has shifted for the better in a lot of ways. I’ve learned how to handle my moments of fear with a more improved attitude.

Death Positive Book : “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes And Other Lessons From The Crematory” a memoir by Caitlin Doughty

This book is quite dear to me. Not only was it the very first death positive book I read, but it truly opened my eyes to think differently about my own fears of death – all while helping me understand my morbid curiosities as well.
