    Default Everybody dies twice...

    Every human being dies at least twice.
    And everybody knows how and why they died the first time, it doesn`t have to be the same reason for everybody.
    After that first death, you can try to fool yourself, to pretend like nothing has happened, but still, somehow you know you are dead.
    You can, lets say, move to another country, change your hairstyle, lose some weight, maybe even change your name. Maybe you can try to find interest in something new, so you can hide behind that, but you know that the lethal wound is there, that you are dead.
    Maybe you can even find a new love, but only if that person has already died as well. So you don`t have to explain anything, so you understand each other without words and you can avoid each others lethal wounds.
    The ones you died from.
    The only hope left is, that when you die that second, final time, it won`t hurt as much as it did the first time.

    Did you ever die yet?

    Little parts of me have died over the years. Grief, cynicism, and betrayal are just a few of the forces that have wreaked havoc on my life at one time or another. The losses have been balanced out, though, by other experiences I've had along the way-- witnessing many acts of kindness, discovering inner strength I didn't know I possessed, finding peace in the majesty of nature, and a lot more I could list...

    "My life closed twice before its closeŚ
    It yet remains to see
    If Immortality unveil
    A third event to me

    So huge, so hopeless to conceive
    As these that twice befell.
    Parting is all we know of heaven,
    And all we need of hell."

    - Emily Dickinson
