Life is Weird

November 29, 2015 10:53pm CST
My grandfather is going to die. Probably tonight. And I'm having weird emotions. Let me start by saying that I had an incredible relationship with my grandparents growing up. My grandmother was the most AMAZING person. She was literally a saint on this earth. When we lost her 8 years ago it rocked the family to the core. My relationship with my grandfather was fine. Not amazing, but fine. We butted heads a lot. After my grandma died he got worse. He's a narcissist. And he really only cares about himself. He causes my mom so much stress, and has led to health problems for her. But tonight, watching him lie in the hospital bed, 85 years old and SO weak. I had mixed emotions. It will be a blessing really when he's gone. My moms' life will be happier and easier. But he's still my grandfather, and it's still just a little sad. Life is weird

I hate how the end of a life is often so skewed. I do my dangest to remember more of the good times; the times my loved one was not demented or infirmed and instead, in the prime of life. Maybe a person to battle with but at least in his or her own mind and sounder body. I wish you well as you say goodbye to your grandfather.

Thank you. He passed last night, and we as a family are working on forgetting the bad and remembering all of the good.

Yes, you are right life is weird. We often find the different thought and different feeling in the same situation. There are many things which lead us have different view in the same situation. I think it is normal if you feel blessed if your grandfather is die, because he make your mother having hard days.

IT's very hard not to feel selfish thinking that though.
