What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?George Eliot
This easing of the way, as I like to think about it, is just one of the roles that an End-of-Life Doula is honored to fill. One of the most profound and satisfying projects that my clients take on is that of creating an End-of-Life Inventory.
This open-discussion format used to take the inventory is structured to promote deep reflection and honest self-assessment. With the unbiased and zealous support of an End-of-Life Doula, many people have been able to come to terms with their regrets, unfinished business, guilt, and shame with clear eyes and an open heart.
Dying is more difficult when one’s very human actions have all that baggage. I’m here to lighten the load and to help my clients bear their emotional burdens. Because in the end, we’re all flawed and perfect in our own ways.
