'Your Time On Earth' Empathy Card
'Your Time On Earth' Empathy Card from Emily McDowell.
I have to be honest, I wasn't too sure about this card when I saw it. I wasn't sure if us Brits were ready for for a card that is centred on people dying. But on the other hand, I do think that we need to be able to talk more openly about death. Thanks mainly to social media, we are so much more open about mental health, illness and other major life challenges. But it does tend to be that it is the person actually experiencing it who is open. The people around them can still be uncomfortable to talk about it with them. This is the same about death. Many of those who are about to die want and need to be able to talk about it. And talking about it is a two-way process.
When someone you love is dying, it often feels impossible to say the things you want to say to them. This card was made to help that conversation feel a little more possible.
