When a person is dying, they are retreating from everything outside of themselves. They have little energy for anything outside of what is going on in their internal world.
When a person is approaching the end of their life, things outside of them begin to lose appeal. You will start to notice they are not doing some of the things they have enjoyed over the years. They begin to not want to see people. This is not to be confused with depression.
Most of the time, a person who is dying does not want to eat or drink as much. It is hard on us who love the person, not on them usually. It is hard for us to stop feeling we should be encouraging our person to eat or drink if they don’t want to.
Do you see yourself serving people at the end of life more deeply?
