The first myth is that by talking about death somehow you are going to hasten its arrival.
False. In fact the reality is, the more you understand (through talking, reading, asking) and feel prepared for death the more comfort and free you can feel in your daily life.
The second myth is that talking about death means you are giving up, or unhappy with life.
False. In fact the reality is, knowledge is power and by talking about and acknowledging death you will be more prepared for you or your loved ones passing.
