Death can be easier to contemplate than life, it might be something that you blame, you might mistaken it for something else and it can be an invitation for reflection.

This post is about 7 of the things that death can cause you to do and some of the things aren’t bad. Some of the things that death can cause can be the things that you need.

1. Death can motivate you and cause you to have thoughts about not always having it (whatever it is )

Death can motivate you. The thought of death can motivate you. Whether it’s the thought of the death of your life, your job, or your friendship, death can motivate you to enjoy, appreciate or indulge those things that you might be taking for granted. Or maybe you’re not taking anything for granted, you just need a little “Umph” to cause you to indulge whatever it is that you might not always have, and that “Umph” is death.

Perhaps you have a job, the thought of the death of that job, can cause you to work harder. If you have a job, the thought of death, can cause you to really take in and enjoy the moments that you are employed.

If you have a friendship, the thought of the death of that friendship, can cause you to appreciate your friend by hanging out with them more. The thought of the death of your friendship can motivate you to check on your friend each day. Or maybe the thought of the death of your friend can make you honor them with specialized gifts that represent how you care for them.

The thought of the death of your life can put you in better moods because it motivates you to get out of whatever mood that you’re in that’s not the best. The thought of the death of your life can cause you to enjoy and appreciate each part of your life more.

2. The thought of making a mistake can make you fearful of death

The thought of making a mistake can make you fearful of death, the death of your job, of being accepted or an opportunity.

Perhaps you have the thought of making a mistake at your job which can end up in the death of your job, and so that causes you to try not to make mistakes. Maybe if you make a wrong decision or choice at your job, you fear the death of your job, so you try not to make wrong decisions and choices.

Maybe the thought of making a mistake in a particular group or platform can cause you to fear the death of being in that group or platform, so you try hard not to make a mistake. Perhaps the thought of making a wrong decision or choice in a group or platform can cause you to fear the death of your position in that group or platform, so you you try not to make mistakes in that position.

3. You fear taking chances at the thought of the death of it

You might fear taking chances in life at the thought of the death of whatever it is that you are taking a chance on.

Perhaps you fear taking a chance at your job because you fear the death of your job or you fear that your job will get taken away from. Maybe you fear taking a chance in your friendship because you fear the death of your friendship or that you won’t have the friendship if you take that chance. Or perhaps you might fear taking a chance in your interest because you’re afraid that you if you do, it will be the death of it.

4. It might be easier to contemplate death than life

It might be easier to contemplate death than life. What does that mean? That means that perhaps you fear living your life so much to the point that you rather contemplate death or think about death. Or you might be so weak, or down, in life to the point that it’s easier to contemplate death rather than to contemplate life.

There are things in life that give you more life and there are things in life that take life away from you. Perhaps you have more things in life that take life away from you rather than give you life. For instance, you think thoughts that take life from you rather than give life to you. Or you might do things that take life from you rather than give you life. Why? Because it’s easier for you to take on death than it is to take on life. You fear life more than you fear death.

5. You blame death

You blame death means that you blame death for what has been taken from you or what could potentially be taken from you. You blame death for your lack of life. You blame death for the potential lack of life.

Maybe a job was taken from you, so you blame death for the reason why your life is not what you want it to be. Maybe you fear your job being taken away from you, so you blame death, for the fear of what could potentially happen to you and your life.

6. Mistake feelings of life and death

You mistake the feelings of life and death means that you think the feeling of life is death or you think the feeling of death is life. You mistake the feelings of life and death because you don’t know what life feels like or you don’t know what death feels like. You mistake the feelings because you don’t know the definition of life or you don’t know the definition of death.

It’s important that you understand the difference of the two, it’s important to understand what they mean to you and what they are suppose to mean to you. Because sometimes what they are suppose to mean to you and what they actually mean to you, are different too.

Maybe it’s something, in life, that you should be doing but you mistake it for a thing that brings death to. Or maybe there’s something in life that you should be doing that you mistake for a thing that takes from you rather understanding that it’s actually a thing that gives to you.

Or maybe there’s something in your life that you’re doing that’s actually taking from you rather than giving to you. Perhaps there’s something that you’re doing that’s causing the death of parts of your life rather than the life of the parts of your life. These are representations of the mistaken feelings of life and death.

7. Death is an invitation for reflection

Maybe you haven’t reflected in a while and the thought of death or something being taken from you, is an invitation for reflection. Maybe you need to think about something being taken from you, in order to reflect.

Maybe you need to contemplate the death of your job, in order to reflect on your job. Or perhaps you had a job taken from you and it caused you to reflect on your job, your life or the death of that job.

If something dies, it causes you to think and reflect. The potential death of something, causes you to think and reflect.

To conclude…

Death might can do more things, but these were 7 of those things. Maybe there are deaths that you had, that you’re having or that you might have. Throughout this post, are included the things that they can do or cause you to do.

Perhaps there were some things that you thought of or some things that you haven’t. Regardless, if you did or didn’t, this is a different take on it.
