Watching Seniors Vanish in Time

I just heard news of one of the neighbor lady who passed out this sunday while I was outside city. So that thought made me think. I am introvert. I think twice before speaking anything. However when I heard of any senior citizen vanishing with the tide of time. I think there is no way I can hold myself and think back did i said something to this person? I know rest of the world is not like me and don't care at all. but I feel guilty if someone dies and i have said something to that person in past. From where I see myself, I never met anyone who would think that about me. But that doesn't mean I don't have to. It's kinda scary to watch seniors go away from around you. You understand life more when you view it from the context of death.

We will all go that stage. Being old and then being out of this world. We want to live more, we want to live longer, but we cannot avoid that end of the line.

Yes that is indeed true. But end of the line doesn't scare me but it's the remaining time left that does.

I think when someone passes away, we always feel we should have done more for that person. I suppose it's normal to feel that way

@skysnap We have children and family to take care of that takes our time, , but when a loved one passes we feel we should have made more time for them.

We had a number of elderly people living in our apartment. I always made it a point to go and help them.. More so after my mother's passing on. I have so many friends who are 30, 35 years older to me.

@skysnap There is so much to learn from them. They expect so little too. Most of the time they just want you to listen.

That's why we should always watch what we say to anyone.
