When we begin the gradual dying process our personality doesn’t change, it intensifies. If we are an angry person we will get angrier. If we are a gentle personality we will become even softer.
You would think we would become more thoughtful about life and its meaning and more religious or spiritual but generally we don’t. We just continue down life’s path in the same direction we always have, a bit more frightened, a bit more nervous maybe but basically just a sicker version of who we have always been. If I have been active all of my life I will push myself to keep going. If I have been passive I will succumb to the temptation to be a couch potato; a complainer will get out the microphone, a loner will withdraw even more.
Learn about how a person has lived their life and you will better understand how they will approach their death.
