Lil Miss N worriedly catechized me re our mortality
Here is roughly how our conversation went
Miss N : I don't want to die when I get older
Me: It's a part of life sweetie. We all must die some day
Miss N: But I am afraid of death and can't I escape it ?
to which I diverted her attention to something more tangible for now.
Mortality is something human beings have to come to grasp with and I was surprised that it's a preoccupation for Lil Miss N at her tender age of 6 already.
I do hope that this particular preoccupation does not prevent her from enjoying life to the max... one cannot shield oneself from the grasps of death : it is a natural evolution of the cycle of life but one can maximise and make the most of our time here on Earth and that is one thing one can determine and master.
